This peaceful and tree-lined city is a desirable destination for many who work in San Francisco or the Silicon Valley. Attractively located midway between San Francisco and San Jose, Menlo Park offers a sunny and temperate climate. Bordered on the North by the city of Atherton and on the South by Stanford University, the Stanford Shopping Center, and Palo Alto, many young families are drawn to live here due to the highly acclaimed Menlo Park public school system and abundance of kid-friendly parks.

Another quaint area at the intersection of Avy Avenue and the Alameda offers several dining options including Lulu’s, a delicious Mexican restaurant, Starbuck’s, the Dailey Method and more.
