Palo Alto is home to Stanford University and was the birthplace of the Silicon Valley (Hewlett and Packard started HP in a garage in downtown Palo Alto). Now, Palo Alto is a very gentrified and increasingly densely urbanizing town.

How interesting to have culture shock in the same state where I live. Coming from San Diego, I am aware of all the preconceived stereotypes about the Bay Area (and I have spent enough time here to know most of them are pretty much accurate), but I had never been to Palo Alto before. Upon arrival, I was charmed by the New England feel of the oak-tree-lined streets, the walkability of the town, the adorable cottages next to gorgeous million-dollar homes (which, despite their price tag, are far less pretentious than homes of the same price in LA and San Diego.) But I was immediately put off by the unfriendly, self-righteousness of almost everyone I met. I walked to work each morning and smiled and nodded a greeting at every person I passed on the street, ALL of whom ignored me, looked straight past me, and pretended I didn't exist. I am certainly not offended, but it was enough of a trend to put me off. And when I asked colleagues about it, the resounding response was, "That's Palo Alto." Welcome to a city where money talks, folks.

Palo Alto is home to Stanford University. Make sure to stroll the beautiful campus if you're visiting. This is a great city to live and work with plenty of shops and restaurants, and a great entrepreneurial and academic spirit.
