This area is very very green and the walkability is amazing. I can walk out of campus to any variety of food places or take my car fifteen minutes down the street to an entire outside shopping mall. Menlo Park/ Atherton/ Redwood City is unbelievable.

This area is very well lit at night. Keeping cars off the street makes the roads look clean and well-managed. Bike lines and sidewalks make the area feel very welcoming.

Absolutely no crime at all around this area and when there is cops respond very quickly.
