LOS ALTOS

Consistently mentioned among the top 15 best suburbs to live and raise a family in California.

Overview for Los Altos

Mountain View and Los Altos are consistently mentioned among the top 15 best suburbs to live and raise a family in California, and for good reason: These side-by-side cities have award-winning schools, lots of open spaces, and plenty of activities for a diversity of lifestyles. Yet each city offers a strikingly different feel and experience.
 
Ask long-time residents of Mountain View or Los Altos what makes their neighborhood special and they’ll easily point to the subtle differences that exist, sometimes block to block. Mountain View boasts a bustling, tech-centric downtown with lots of new transit-oriented housing, office space for many of the world’s largest tech giants, and seven blocks of restaurants, bars, and theaters that attract people from throughout the region.
 
And one can find every type of housing option in the city’s 25 neighborhoods. Los Altos reveres its quiet, secluded village-like feel with a quaint downtown purposely devoid of big box stores and large businesses. Its eight neighborhoods consist of predominantly single-family homes on large lots. So which community is good for first-time homebuyers? Where can you get around without a car? And what neighborhoods are the most family-friendly? Our 18th guide to local neighborhoods provides an insider’s perspective on what stands out in these two communities compared to other Midpeninsula cities, as well as what subtle differences set each of their neighborhoods apart from the others.
