Welcome to Downtown Los Altos

The tree lined streets of Downtown Los Altos, lush with green in summer and vibrantly colorful in fall, evoke the quaint, village atmosphere of small-town America. Nowhere else can you find a hardware store, a gem & mineral shop, and two grocery stores just a short stroll from unique cafes, boutiques and salons.

Within the six-block downtown triangle you will discover more than 150 shops offering just about everything from A to Z. Grab a special gift, make a deposit, have your clothes cleaned and tailored, and then grab food to go from the area’s most unique array of restaurants. All this in a safe environment guided by social distancing protocols. Convenient FREE parking on street and in the plazas.

Shop. Dine. Explore. Discover. Downtown Los Altos.
