Any must visit restaurants?

Happy Holidays to all!

Our son lives in Los Altos Hills. You will love having everything - recreation centers, golf courses, pools, restaurants, stores, medical facilities so accessible particularly by golf cart. The traffic is horrendous out there and the interstates/freeways are stressful. Love to come home to the bubble - beautifully landscaped and so easy to navigate.

Congratulations, tom_sjc. You'll love it here. Were you able to move up your retirement date or will you be part timers for a while?

I'm originally from the Santa Clara Valley but left in the mid-80s and must say I do not miss it!
