"Connector Street"

Whipple Avenue can almost be categorized into two segments - the stretch that runs from the 101 to El Camino Real, and the stretch that runs west of El Camino through the rest of the town.

The former is a bustling, traffic-laden (hey, look where it is!) industrialized street with a strip mall-esque slew of chain restaurants and car dealerships. Traffic is often heavy, U-turns are illegal, and car services are abundant.

The latter is comprised of beautiful suburban residences that get bigger and further apart as one moves west, a common phenomenon on the Peninsula. The street ends at a park and medical center. Given that it is a major road and has its own exit off of the 101, it is still going to see some traffic, but it calms down quite a bit after El Camino.
