Portola Valley is a beautiful little town nestled in the hills of the Bay Area. Unlike the first definition, people living in Portola Valley are, in fact, rather well-off. Needless to say, that doesn't mean they're all stuck-up rich kids--like any affluent area, there are some people like this, but there is also a large population of down-to-earth people who just happen to have a little bit of money. Also unlike the first definition, it is not "smelly" or "dirty," but quaint and rather pretty... anyone who's actually been to Portola Valley would know this. Being in Portola Valley is like taking a walk in the country, and although you may feel rather isolated while in the town, large urban areas including San Francisco and the Palo Alto area are just minutes down the road. A great place to grow up... :)
-Portola Valley's just tryna to imitate Atherton.
-Actually, Portola Valley is it's own town not trying to imitate anybody. Houses may not average at $20 million, but I'd say an average of $5 million still indicates a rather wealthy area.
