Overview

Midtown is a sizable, charming neighborhood that, true to its name, is located smack-dab in the middle of Palo Alto—and residents greatly value this level of centrality.

 

Although frequented by loyal patrons of its businesses, the neighborhood is hardly what one would call metropolitan. A central cluster of stores and restaurants known as Midtown Shopping Center is one of the neighborhood’s greatest assets, and includes staples such as Starbucks and a 24-hour Safeway. Another excellent advantage is Hoover Park, consisting of over four acres where residents gather for sports practices, pet exercise at the dog park, and casual afternoon outings. Midtown’s easy access to highly acclaimed public schools is yet another top feature.

 

This particular neighborhood is widely considered a model residential area due to its expansive amenities, in addition to its equally divided lots and bike-friendly streets. It also boasts a relatively low price range for Palo Alto. This impressive combination makes it very desirable for both buyers and investors, who have induced a wave of new construction here in recent years.

 

Overall, Midtown is a high-quality yet relatively affordable place to live, especially for families and those hoping to start them.

  • Relatively affordable real estate

The public schools are among the best in the nation. Graduates from the local high schools attend the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country, with a much larger than average number admitted to neighboring Stanford. Abundant bike paths make it easy for most students to bike to their local schools, giving them a sense of independence that is valued by parents and children alike.
