A town in the bay area/silicon valley in northern California. It started as a apricot orchard or something, and grew into the glorious haven for upper-middle class citizens in the area we now talk about. Mostly full of old people who are real assholes, 5th graders to seniors who wonder around the town being douches and smoking weed, and their parents, who seem completely oblivious to what goes around in town. Not much happens in this town, its a big heap of boring shit. The town thinks that a hotel would be a better thing to have than a movie theater, which shows how far up its own ass this town is. Los Altos is full of spoiled white kids with a few minorities thrown in their, and there is really no diversity in the town. Los Altos is the town that everyone who lives there is well off, and can the people can practically get whatever they want. If you want to live in Los Altos, have fun with... whatever we have in this town.
Person 1: Hey man, did you hear about all of that hardcore shit coming from Los Altos?
Person 2: No

A city across the train tracks from Mountain View. Full of old people and rich white kids who act ghetto because they know they're so far from the hood they won't get shot.
Hey man, let's go to my Mom's boyfriend's mansion in the Los Altos Hills, sit on the balcony and maybe we can see some wild mexican across the train tracks in Mountain View.

OR

Let's go to Los Altos and and do nothing..

4.
Little town where all the expensive shops close by 5. Home of the rich and of a few homeless people who everyone knows by name.

Everyone knows everyone else, and its generally really boring. Lots of drugs, lots of sex, and lots of adultery.

Means "the stops" in Spanish. As in, everyone stops in Los Altos to laugh at all the retired folks who blew all their cash on an expensive house and now have to cut out coupons to pay for food.
Los Altos, Palo Alto, Los Gatos, Portola Valley, and Woodside are in the Bay Area. Everyone wants to live there.
