Local Lifestyle

Palo Alto has a coveted balance of small-town areas and idyllic residential streets. It is a family-orientated city that attracts young adults to Stanford University, researchers, and the urban professionals of Silicon Valley. The single-family homes, townhouses, and condominiums have a modern sophistication. Palo Alto has a significantly higher footprint of walkable areas than its surrounding neighborhoods in Silicon Valley. Independent shops, big-name brands, and convenient stores are available in both the suburban areas and the concentrated village streets.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

One of the biggest attractions in Palo Alto is Stanford University. Some of the brightest minds, both students and faculty, live in Palo Alto for the chance to research and learn at Stanford. Studying is always smoother when paired with coffee at Verve for a morning or afternoon pick me up.
The population of Palo Alto reflects itself in the culture and food scene. Elegant and unique dining options are displayed throughout the town. For craft gastronomy, there is the famous Bird Dog from The French Laundry’s Chef Robbie Wilson. The name of the game at Bird Dog is finesse. Serving up a delicate menu of the finest meats and ingredients.
For equally elegant fare with a homey atmosphere, there is Evvia Estiatorio, a Greek restaurant with a beautiful dining room. The authentic cuisine will warm you up just as much as the hospitable design and staff. For a punch of flavor, try Ettan, a contemporary Indian restaurant with a Michelin background.
The shopping options are as refined as the dining venues. The Stanford Shopping Center is an open-air mall with designer goods, brand staples, and dining, making it a one-stop-shop for easy weekend strolling. You will find Hermes, Coach, Crate and Barrel, and Pottery Barn at the Stanford Shopping Center.

Things to Do

Since work attracts many people to the city of Palo Alto, the options for relaxation and play are abundant. The University Club of Palo Alto is a recreation and social club set between the pastoral trees and water of Matadero Creek. Their facilities boast state-of-the-art sporting courts and fitness centers that also house a clubhouse for member dining and socializing. Another destination for golf lovers is the Palo Alto Hills Golf & Country Club, with a newly renovated 18-hole course and infinity pool for the whole family to enjoy.
Palo Alto's gorgeous natural landscape, Gamble Garden, is a historic property, a public garden, and a gathering place for residents to enjoy the California sun among beautiful blooms. For a bigger surface area to stroll, there is the Foothills Nature Preserve, a 1,400-acre park with wildlife, trails, rolling fields, and great views of Palo Alto.
A relaxing place to socialize with friends is the Quattro Bar, located in the Four Seasons. The wrap-around bar has hand-crafted cocktails and small plates featuring the freshest ingredients.


Palo Alto is served by the Palo Alto Unified School District and the Ravenswood City Elementary School District.
