    "Very friendly and save neighborhood. There are some parks and good schools nearby. Good place to live! "
  • Trulia User
    "I've lived here about a year now having no expectations due to Palo Alto's history. There are basically two Palo Altos. One is where there is commerce occuring with many, many, many choices of food and drink and the quiet, residential areas. It's very relaxing, convenient and tranquil. It's a great jumping off point to get to anywhere that Caltrain can take you. Roberts delivering packages and driverless cars just blend in. Bike riding is very, very big here. Anything from a simple commuter junker sat on by techies to family sedans where there a rig in the front and the back. The bike riding is pretty safe in the neighborhoods as long as you plan yor route. "
