Welcome to Menlo Park
Suburban charm with the heartbeat of a sunny city.
Drive or walk from home to Santa Cruz Avenue, Menlo Park’s charming main drag, with its fine dining and luxury boutiques — but, be careful, you won’t be able to help striking up a conversation with a friendly shopkeeper.
What To Expect
An active community with a carpe diem attitude.
Menlo Park runs, bikes, kayaks, and hikes — and it’s not shy about it. It’s a town that plays hard during the day and tends to go to bed early.
Dog- and family-friendly, with a penchant for being outside.
Though more and more restaurants are catering to European-style late-night eats and outdoor bistro tables, Menlo Park lacks any real nightlife, but for dog lovers and families, it’s idyllic: Kids run around in the park on sunny afternoons while happy dogs trot beside avid runners.
Friendly neighbors and relaxing vibes to balance out busy tech life.
This is the kind of community where you smile at your neighbors and stop for a chat when you run into each other at the farmer’s market — a hometown respite amidst the whirlwind of tech craziness.
Options for luxury or convenience — or both.
With median home prices at $2.2 million, Menlo Park has lots of variety for anyone looking to center themselves in the heart of Silicon Valley — from glass-walled modern marvels and quaint country escapes to cottages close to downtown.
