Los Altos is 37 miles south of San Francisco. It is a very small city, comprising just seven square miles. It originated as an area called Banks and Braes, but when the railroad entered the area in the early 1900s it became known as Los Altos. The nearby cities of Los Altos Hills, Palo Alto, Mountain View and Sunnyvale are similarly quiet suburban cities. The city boasts excellent public and private schools for families with children. The family can enjoy many outdoor activities, including Redwood Grove, a nature preserve with acres and acres of native plants and animals. Los Altos' greatest claim to fame is that it is where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first 50 Apple I computers in Jobs' garage.1
