Los Altos: The Quiet Life
Los Altos is a peaceful, residential city with tree-lined streets and a quaint downtown. Due to commercial restrictions, Los Altos lacks the tech and corporate presence of many Peninsula and South Bay cities, but the city’s downtown features more than 150 shops and restaurants in a six-block area, with frequent movie nights, farmers’ markets, and special events, making it a suburbanite’s dream town.
Los Altos is an affluent community, with a median household income of $158,000, according to United States Census Bureau data, and most homes are owner-occupied, and pride of ownership is evident in the superbly maintained properties.
Los Altos attracts many families due to top-rated schools. According to the California Academic Performance Index, all nine elementary and junior high schools operated by the Los Altos School District averaged scores above 900 on a scale of 1,000 over the past three years.
