Home to Facebook and much of the Silicon Valley workforce, Menlo Park has an upbeat charm that you won’t be able to resist when popping into shops downtown or exploring the natural spaces outside (and inside!) the neighborhood. 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. 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.
