I second San Mateo, when I lived on the peninsula I loved going there, but I think people would question, is that really Silicon Valley? At least in terms of jobs it is, but I think traditionally Silicon Valley only goes as far north as Menlo Park.

San Carlos is nice, but I would put Mountain View above it, Palo Alto is actually pretty nice, but expensive.

In the South Bay as I mentioned Mountain View would be first, then Los Gatos, downtown San Jose, then you get to smaller downtowns, Los Altos, Campbell, Sunnyvale, Willow Glen in San Jose.

But yeah for Silicon Valley I would say Palo Alto is nice, then Mountain View. Menlo Park is nice too, but I don't think it is as walkable as the others.

Palo Alto and Menlo Park were always more about research and science (and on Sand Hill, $$$) than computers and software. The hubs of Silicon Valley are Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, San Jose, Cupertino, Mountain View.
