      Living in East Palo Alto is great because it has a lot to offer including scenic views and activities for everyone. My kids love visiting the local zoo and museum. We are animal lovers so we try to visit the zoo as much as possible. We even have annual passes. I also love the computer history museum. It's fun to compare the old technology to what we have now.

      We are also known for the renowned Stanford University. We spend a lot of time here on the weekends because my niece is a student there. The campus is beautiful especially if you want to just enjoy a walk and take in the scenic views.

      We have tons of restaurants. Some of my favorites are Three Brothers Tacos on University Ave because the tacos are fresh and authentic. I also love Emmanuel's Pizza. They are known for their big slices. You can probably find a variety of restaurants near Stanford that will suit your taste.
