MENLO PARK is a city at the eastern edge of San Mateo County, in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. It is bordered by San Francisco Bay on the north and east, Palo Alto and Stanford to the south, and Atherton and Redwood City to the west.
Considered as one of the most educated cities in California, a majority of Menlo Park’s economy revolves around venture capitals, law firms, and other investment vehicles focused on technology. In 2011, Facebook’s headquarters officially moved into Menlo Park and later reported the company as the city’s biggest employer the following year.
A few local traditions include the Menlo Movie Series in Downtown Menlo Park where family and friends of all ages gather and watch free movies under the stars, and the city’s Summer Concert Series where some of the best local bands are featured playing from a variety of musical genres including Jazz and Country hits.
