Tiny Los Altos is the quintessential bedroom community - in fact, the only business in town is a bookstore. This Silicon Valley rural oasis has some of the largest homes in the Bay Area - one home boasts 18,000 square feet of living space - and all dwellings must take up at least an acre of this most prime real estate. The 60-acre Packard orchard is among the natural splendors, but the best feature besides the ritzy homes and choke-a-horse bankrolls is the Pathway System, a 63-mile maze of trails that winds through the pristine town.
