Located in a prime location for those wanting access to the Silicone Valley and the Bay area, Palo Alto residents enjoy the perfect blend of new and old.  This historic town whose name comes from a majestic Redwood over 1000 years old where Spanish explorers first settled has welcomed the future by becoming home to several tech based companies becoming a leader in technological development.   Despite being on the cutting edge, Palo Alto still prioritizes outside space boasting over 30 public parks and over 1/3 of the city's 26 square miles dedicated to open space.  Courtesy of Yogini Patel Cupertino Realtor
