Welcome to the City of Palo Alto. Known as the "Birthplace of Silicon Valley," Palo Alto is a vibrant city with a thriving economy and a rich history of innovation and entrepreneurship.  We are home to some of the smartest and most creative people, great cultural attractions and an incredible natural landscape.  Our great City was named #1 on the Top 100 Best Places to Live by, and we have been named the #1 Digital City in America for our size by the Center for Digital Government.
