With a population of around 34,000, Menlo Park is a great place to live for those looking for a suburban home. Menlo Park is located in San Mateo County and is between the cities San Francisco and San Jose. This puts Menlo Park in a split between a busy and peaceful area. If you’re looking for a Menlo Park home to either enjoy the quiet experience or have days filled with outdoor activities, you are in luck because you can have both in the same area.
Days in Menlo Park are spent relaxing and soaking in the perfect weather. Menlo Park is considered one of the best places to live in California due to the constant good weather as well the distance from other neighboring cities. They have a really good school system and even have some of the best medical centers for all its residents. With a short drive, you can visit the nearby cities and even downtown Palo Alto for shopping when required.
There is a low crime rate in the town, and it is considered relatively safe to walk or bike around in, even at night. On a perfect sunny day, you can rent a bike and travel around the town through the many paved roads. The roads here are pretty wide as well, making it much safer to ride bikes around without having to worry about the dangers of oncoming traffic.
Schools are an important factor when looking for your Menlo Park home. Most of the schools in and around Menlo Park are ranked above average. You can find a mix of both public and private schools, depending on what you prefer. There are Las Lomitas and Oak Knoll Elementary for kids who need elementary schools for you to consider. Once they complete elementary school, they can move on to Hillview Middle for middle school or continue with La Entrada as it goes up to the middle school level.
For high school options, you can choose between some highly rated schools in the area, especially Carlmont High School and Menlo-Atherton High School. These are both public schools as well.
In terms of private school options, there is Alto International which is perfect for all grades from Elementary to High school. This option would be ideal to complete all grades in one school. There are more than ten other options available to you as well. Once graduated from high school, they can then decide on a college which is quite close by. Some of the notable ones are Menlo College, Stanford University, or Canada College.
The community, in general, is quite welcoming and has many activities and events scattered throughout the year. Due to other popular cities being close by, some of their events will even spill over into Menlo Park such, as Silicon Valley events, you will be able to attend.
