Moving to Palo Alto
“We are moving to Palo Alto, California!”
If you’ve exclaimed those words, congratulations, this is an exciting time!
Palo Alto is a gorgeous city between the San Francisco Bay and foothills, in the heart of Silicon Valley. Palo Alto brings exclusivity. The City has developed a 31-mile fiber ring for ultra-fast Internet access, and the municipality owns and operates its own gas, electric, water and sewer services, which means residents pay lower rates than in neighboring jurisdictions.
Both Google and Facebook were founded in Palo Alto. It is also the home to Stanford University. The Pacific Ocean and the beach are only a 45-minute drive. While the city’s name has become synonymous with innovation and sustainability, the name “Palo Alto,” literally means “tall stick.” The moniker refers to a giant coastal redwood tree along San Francisquito Creek, where early Spanish explorers settled in 1774.
These are some of our favorite things to do in Palo Alto:
- Foothills Park: Wildlife abounds at the 1,400-acre Foothills Park, truly a nature lover’s paradise. There are 15 miles of hiking trails, which offer a variety of hiking experiences. The park includes woodlands, fields, streams and a lake. It is open only to Palo Alto residents and their guests.
- Architectural Tour: Palo Alto Stanford Heritage, the local preservation association, has designed self-guided tours of Palo Alto architecture. For example, stroll through the Ramona Street Architectural District to admire Spanish-Colonial Revival style.
- Study Particle Physics: When in Palo Alto… The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center offers free public tours. Tours last about 90 minutes and usually include a visit to the lab’s two-mile-long linear accelerator.
- Sculpture Garden: Visit the Rodin Sculpture Garden on the Stanford campus, at 328 Lomita Drive.
- Watercolor and Wildlife: The Foster Art & Wilderness Foundation houses the permanent collection of plein air artist Tony Foster.
