      The area has two great schools (Las Lomitas Elementary and La Entrada Middle School are actually a separate school district from the rest of Menlo Park) so in that respect it is family friendly. People like to exercise outside and walk their dog and the area is safe, well maintained, and expensive. For entertainment, however, West Menlo Park is distinctly quiet with barely a Starbucks on one end and a Safeway on the other although it IS a quick drive/bike ride to various shopping and eating locations. There is Menlo Park's quaint downtown with restaurants, cafes and expensive boutiques - it's about 2 miles away. There's also the Stanford Shopping Center, 2-3 miles away and downtown Palo Alto is about a 10 minute drive. As long as you don't mind hopping into your car or on your bike to get outside of W Menlo Park, there's plenty nearby.
