LOS ALTOS is a suburban area located in the southern end of the San Francisco Bay Area. While the city strives to maintain a semi-rural atmosphere, it is home to many commuters and an ideal place to live and raise a family. Many homes in the area fetch $2 million and higher and spend little time on the market.

Local traditions include the Pet Parade - a Los Altos family favorite, the Los Altos Rotary Club Fine Art Show, and Festival of Lights Parade.
