1. Excellent public school system 2. World class university Stanford right here - Visit Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University, then take a leisurely stroll to the glittering facade of the Stanford Memorial Church. Hoover Tower - This 285-foot tower furnishes an outstanding view and houses the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace. 3. Lively downtown with many restaurant, entertainment, and shopping options. 4. There are many libraries and parks around the area. 5. Countless Cultural events - Catch a play by the Palo Alto Children's Theater, TheatreWorks or the Palo Alto Players at the Lucie Stern Community Center. Listen to summer jazz, admire the floral displays and, yes, shop at Stanford Shopping Center. Relive Hollywood's Golden Age at Stanford Theatre and marvel at the sound of the Mighty Wurlitzer organ between screenings. 6. Birth of many high tech companies - go check out the garage where David Packard and William Hewlett, Hewlett Packard, cooked up the oscillator that started it all. The area is home to Nobel prize winners, Silicon Valley CEOs, venture-capital firms, HP, Facebook and one of the most renowned universities and medical centers in the world. 7. Beautiful hiking trails - Run or walk, and soak up the panoramic bay views - along the Stanford Dish trails. Or feel the breeze off the San Francisco Bay, see what pickleweed looks like and appreciate the natural state of the bay's shore at Palo Alto's Baylands Preserve. 8. Palo Alto is an environment conscious city. PaloAltoGreen is the most successful green power program in the nation. The City government is a Certified Green Business. Palo Alto has even built a film festival around Earth Day. It doesn’t get any greener than that. 9. Temperate year round climate! 10. The people - Palo Altan! Palo Alto is a town where people thrive on doing interesting things, and not just at work. You could randomly throw a rock in any neighborhood and have a good chance of hitting a mountain climber, an author, a dancer, a pilot or a retired investor conducting genetic experiments with fruit flies. Palo Alto is a marvelous mix - Eichlers and Victorians, students and retirees, homeowners and renters, rich people and homeless people, Democrats and Republicans, vegans and wine snobs.
