Welcome to Los Altos & Los Altos Hills

Prior to 1950, Los Altos was an agricultural town with summer homes and apricot orchards. Ranch, Mediterranean, and contemporary-style homes are nestled on lanes intersecting the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The garage where Apple was launched, now a historic site, is also located in Los Altos.
 
A premier residential community, Los Altos Hills features land preserves, rugged hills and commanding views. It shares amenities, zip codes, and a vital downtown area with Los Altos. Within six blocks are more than 150 establishments offering everything from banking to fine dining. In operation for more than 90 years, Draeger's Market is a long-time favorite for its high-quality specialty and gourmet groceries. An annual Arts & Wine Festival, car show, and numerous summer events keep things lively.

Los Altos Hills is noted for its 65-mile Pathway System, which unites neighborhoods through connecting paths and links to open space. Walkers, runners, horseback riders, and bicyclists enjoy the off-road natural beauty.
