“Menlo Park is an affluent city within the San Francisco Bay Area in San Mateo County, California. Home to the corporate headquarters of Facebook, Menlo Park’s other claims to fame include being in the city where both Google and Round Table Pizza were founded. Needless to say, lots of the most important people in the tech industry live in and around Menlo Park.
Menlo Park started its life as a ranch called Rancho de las Pulgas. With the introduction of a new railroad, Menlo Park quickly exploded into the population, eventually acquiring the name we all know today, and becoming part of the wider San Francisco Bay urban area.”
