At the end of the San Francisco Peninsula, and right in Silicon Valley, sits Los Altos. The city was once known for growing apricots, but it’s not a commuter city for Silicon Valley and for San Francisco. It’s also one of the most expensive suburbs in the nation.
Los Altos’ city planners have provided a unique community, close to urban areas, but while maintaining a rural feel. There are few sidewalks. Most homes have at least a quarter acre lot. The roads are paved, but most have dirt shoulders and not much lighting. The civic center is in the middle of an orchard.
If Los Altos seems like the perfect town for you, a lot of people would agree, so much so that the median home price is close to $3 million. The median monthly rent is $6,500.
Not surprisingly, Los Altos is or was home to a number of notable figures, including Google cofounder, Sergey Brin, Apple cofounder, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook.
The climate in Los Altos is similar to the rest of the Bay Area, but it is much rainier. In fact, while most of the Bay Area experiences about 2/3 of the national average in precipitation, Los Altos is slightly above average. It occasionally even snows in Los Altos. The temperatures are quite moderate, though, with July highs averaging about 78 degrees and January lows in the high 30s.
