Menlo Park

City in California

Menlo Park in the Peninsula area of the San Francisco Bay Area is located just north of Palo Alto and East Palo Alto. Menlo Park is known mostly for abundant high-tech employers. It encompasses portions of the Stanford University campus, including the Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC).

Menlo Park is home to a number of high-tech firms (Google was started there, Facebook is moving there), a number of the venture capital and law firms that fund and be lawyer them, and a research institute (SRI) that spins them off. Otherwise, it’s mostly known for being a wealthy, pleasant and somewhat boring suburb.
