Los Altos Disaster & Recovery Services
Los Altos is a city located in the heart of Silicon Valley. South of San Francisco in the center of Santa Clara County, Los Altos’s small village atmosphere is home to nearly 30,000 residents. Meaning “the heights” in Spanish, the town’s eclectic charm is characterized by its tree-lined downtown, fresh summers, and colorful fall seasons. Visitors and residents enjoy the community’s weekly farmers markets, expansive nature preserves, and quaint downtown shops.
Los Altos downtown features seven small retail districts with over 150 shops and boutiques. From grocery stores to salons, grab-and-go restaurants to hardwares stores, gem and mineral shops to laundromats – downtown Los Altos has something for everyone. Plazas and streets feature convenient free parking, and the city is designed for walkability. If visitors attend on weekends, they may be lucky enough to enjoy fresh produce from the farmer’s market or chill out at a concert at the Art and Wine festival.
Beyond the downtown and residential areas dotted with schools, libraries, and churches, Los Altos features an extensive open space. The Windy Hill open space reserve is lined with trails that lead to stunning views. Nearby at the Hidden Villa farm and Wilderness reserve, locals enjoy greeting the animals and touring the organic farm and gardens. If Silicon Valley is more your style, you can visit the exact garage that the idea for Apple was conceived in. Walking the line between the quaint small-town American feel and the Silicon Valley tech scene, Los Altos is a California favorite.
