PAd 721 Emerson Street 650-223-4334 PaloAltoDowntown.com Welcome to Palo Alto Whether you are visiting for business, for pleasure or to attend a conference or other event at Stanford University, you will quickly discover the unusual blend of intellect, innovation, culture and natural beauty that makes Palo Alto so special. The area is home to Nobel Prize winners, Silicon Valley CEOs, venture capital firms, Hewlett-Packard, Facebook and one of the most renowned universities and medical centers in the world. While Palo Alto developed as a sleepy college town, the emergence of Stanford University as the leading high technology academic research center in the nation in the 1970s led to hundreds of start-up businesses with connections to Stanford professors and their inventions. Thus Palo Alto became known as the birthplace of Silicon Valley and attracted engineers and others from all over the world to pursue their dreams. The Stanford campus itself is the biggest visitor attraction, and visitors could easily spend a day or longer exploring the beautiful (and large) campus. But at a minimum any visit should also include a walk or drive through the tree-lined (and some of the costliest in the nation) residential neighborhoods, a walk in the foothills or baylands and some great shopping and eating in the several business districts. For our list of 10 sites not to miss while you are visiting, look in the Attractions section. Enjoy!

Our favorite recommendations for out-of-town visitors are listed below. The numbers shown in ( ) are the location markers on the center-fold map. A trip to the Stanford University campus is the highlight for most visitors, where attractions include Hoover Tower, Memorial Church (see page 17), Cantor Arts Center, Rodin Sculpture Garden and a central campus bustling with activity. Carol Blitzer Hoover Tower (5) Stanford University; 650-723-2053; www.stanford. edu/dept/visitorinfo/plan/guides/hoover.html Hours: Daily 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., closed during finals and academic breaks Visible to all the surrounding areas, Hoover Tower is a landmark to Stanford students, faculty, alumni and the local communities. The 285-foot tower offers spectacular views of Stanford campus, the Foothills and the Bay Area from its observation deck. A student tour guide is available to point out important landmarks and sights. Finished in 1941 to celebrate the university's 50th anniversary, the landmark is part of the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace. The breathtaking views and historical background makes a visit to Hoover Tower a truly one-of-a-kind Palo Alto experience. Gamble Garden Computer History Museum (10) Cantor Arts Center (4) 328 Lomita Drive (at Museum Way); 650-723-4177; www.museum.stanford.edu The Stanford family created the museum to display their personal collection of objects of art and cultural interest; now, the museum's collections are devoted to a wide range of art, from 19th-century American drawings to contemporary sculptures. While at the Center, visitors should be sure to visit Stanford's outdoor sculptures: the Rodin Sculpture Garden, which houses the largest collection of Auguste Rodin sculptures outside of Paris, the New Guinea Sculpture Garden as well as numerous pieces throughout the campus. Admission to the museum is free, and visitors can take advantage of docent tours, lectures, gallery talks, special events, the bookstore, and the cafe overlooking the sculpture gardens. 1401 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View; 650-810-1010; www.computerhistory.org Dedicated to the preservation and celebration of computing history, the Computer History Museum houses one of the largest international collections of computing artifacts in the world, including computer hardware, ephemera, photographs, moving images, documents, and software. Through online and physical exhibits, visitors can discover the worldwide impact of the computing revolution on the human experience. While some of the online exhibits complement physical exhibits, most are independent from each other and provide the visitor with unique information on computers. The museum is free to the public and offers docent led tours throughout the afternoon. Sunset Magazine Gardens (3) 80 Willow Road, Menlo Park; 650-321-3600; www.sunset.com/garden If you are the home-gardening type, you won't want to miss a visit to the famous Sunset Magazine Garden. Located at Sunset Magazine's headquarters in nearby Menlo Park, the display garden offers a glimpse of architecture and foliage from the major climate zones of the West. The garden contains a 1.2-acre lawn, four designated areas representing the Northwest, Northern California, Central California, and the Southwest Desert and Southern California regions, and a 3,000-squarefoot test area. The entire display garden is open for free, self-guided tours, weekdays 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. HP Garage (7) 367 Addison Ave., Palo Alto Known as the Birthplace of Silicon Valley, the HP garage is a symbol of innovation and entrepreneurism. College friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard purchased the garage in 1938 as a workspace to develop their own company, which has become one of the most successful in the country. The modest building served as a research lab and a development and manufacturing workshop. However, as the company grew, the garage was quickly outgrown and the company moved to a larger headquarters. The property is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Although the garage is not open for public tours, feel free to observe from the street and imagine the pioneers of the electronics revolution chasing their innovative dream. Gamble Garden (8) 1431 Waverley St., Palo Alto; 650-329-1356; www.gamblegarden.org Willed to the city of Palo Alto by Elizabeth F. Gamble in 1981, the 2.3-acre Gamble Garden Center features a 1902 Colonial/Georgian Revival house and formal, working, and demonstration gardens. The historic property is now a nonprofit community horticultural foundation, and places an emphasis on education as well as aesthetic beauty. The demonstration gardens include an herb garden and cutting beds. The estate also includes a carriage house, teahouse, tool house, greenhouse and a gazebo. Conveniently located and open to the public at no charge during daylight hours, a visit to Gamble Garden Center is always a relaxing experience. 6 S pring/S ummer Visitors G uide 20 1 0 � w w w.

Learn more about Stanford's history, architecture, landmarks and art by downloading a Podcast Tour at www.stanford.edu/dept/visitorinfo. If you are short on time, the formal and most dramatic entrance is from Palm Drive, which approaches the Oval, the Main Quadrangle and Memorial Church from the east and downtown Palo Alto. The Quad is the academic center of the university, with various departments having their classrooms and offices throughout the perimeter. The non-denominational Memorial Church (450 Serra Mall; 650-723-3469; www.stanford.edu/group/religiouslife/memchu.html) is generally open each week day. Visitors may explore the art and architecture Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., with docent tours every Friday at 2 p.m. and the last Sunday of the month at 11:15 a.m. Services, events and weddings can make access on weekends difficult, but a weekly ecumenical worship featuring choir and organ music is held each Sunday at 10 a.m. and open to the public. For a great view of the entire campus and Palo Alto, take the elevator up to the top of 285-foot tall Hoover Tower, the university's most visible landmark and just a short walk from the Quad.

For up-to-date information see the Stanford Athletics website (www.gostanford. com), call 800-STANFORD (800-782-6367) or visit PA Sports Online (www.PAsportsonline.com). Stanford athletics venues are all located at the eastern side of the campus, a short walk from Town & Country Village at the corner of El Camino Real and Embarcadero Road. Parking Art and architecture Art lovers will find many great Stanford resources, but be sure and visit the Cantor Arts Center (see page 6) and the adjacent Rodin Sculpture Garden, with the largest collection of Rodin bronzes outside Paris. The Cantor, which offers free admission, is a popular cultural resource for the entire region. While on campus, don't miss the Stanford Papua New Guinea Sculpture Garden (Santa Teresa Street, off Campus Drive West), near Roble Hall, or pick up an Outdoor Art Tour, leaving from the Cantor Arts Center. Pay parking is available daily between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., either in coin-metered spaces ($1.50 per hour) or Pay and Display lots. Machines at lots accept credit cards, cash or coins. Visitor day permits can be purchased for $12 at 340 Bonair Siding, Stanford. The two closest lots to 295 Galvez St., a starting point for campus tours, are on the corner of Galvez Street and Nelson Road, and Galvez Street and Memorial Way. Other lots are scattered around the periphery of campus. Call 650-723-9362.

Immensely popular among locals and visitors, walkers and runners, is the Stanford "Dish" loop (see page 8), a paved path winding through the Stanford foothills with tremendous views of the university, Palo Alto and the entire Peninsula. The Baylands Nature Preserve (see page 8), located at the end of Embarcadero Road, offers miles of flat walking trials that allow visitors to explore the area's extensive wildlife habitat. A staffed visitor's center has exhibits and a boardwalk extending into the bay and the nearby duck pond is a fun place for younger kids. The Pearson-Arastradero Preserve, in the foothills beyond Stanford, has a small unstaffed visitor's center with exhibits and a network of easy trails ideal for one- to two-hour hikes. Casual walkers with an interest in history and architecture will enjoy one of several historical walks around Palo Alto residential neighborhoods that date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. Historic preservation is a big part of Palo Alto's culture, and historic home tours take place a number of times each year. Palo Alto Stanford Heritage offers self-guided tours through its website at www.pastheritage.org. Golfers will find Palo Alto's popular full-length 18hole, 6,800-yard Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course (1875 Embarcadero Road, Palo Alto; 650-856-0881; www.cityofpaloalto.org), located next to the Baylands at the end of Embarcadero Road, both challenging and affordable. The facility includes a club house, driving range, putting green and practice bunker. Those with a connection to Stanford (alumni or parents) are able to play (with some restrictions and at resort-level green fees) at the Stanford Golf Course (198 Junipero Serra Blvd., Stanford; 650-323-0944 for golf course, 650-323-9516 for driving range; http://stanfordgolfcourse.com), a beautiful and long course that is operated by the university for its faculty and students and the private members who wait years on a waiting list to join. Mountain View's Shoreline Links (2940 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View; 650-903-4653; www. ci.mtnview.ca.us), also located in the baylands, is another good option. Public tennis courts in Palo Alto are generally well maintained and easy to get on. Most convenient to hotels are courts at Palo Alto High School (enter from 25 Churchill Ave.) and at Rinconada Park on Embarcadero Road at Newell. Both are lit at night. There are many courts on the Stanford campus, but you risk getting kicked off if you have no university affiliation. The Palo Alto area prides itself on accommodating and encouraging bike riding, and riders of all levels take advantage of nearby rural areas and hills. The most popular rides use Arastradero, Alpine, Portola and Sand Hill roads to create loops of different lengths. Skilled riders wanting to devote several hours or all day ride up to Skyline Boulevard and down to the coast and Carol Blitzer Walkers often take to the loop trail behind Stanford, called `The Dish.' back. Mountain View's Shoreline Lake, located in the baylands just south of Palo Alto (and interconnected with the Palo Alto Baylands via trails), offers sail, paddle and rowboat rentals, as well as a cafe, picnicking and walking trails. Both Palo Alto and Menlo Park offer lap-swimming through their municipal pools -- Rinconada Pool (777 Embarcadero Road, Palo Alto; 650-463-4914; www.cityofpaloalto.org) and Burgess Memorial Pool (501 Laurel St., Menlo Park; 650-328-7946; www.menloswim. com). But if you're up for sun paddling, windsurfing or renting pedalboats, rowboats, canoes or kayaks, the Shoreline Aquatic Center (Shoreline Lake, 3160 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mtn. View; 650-965-7474; www.shorelinelake.com) is the destination. While Palo Alto is located between the Bay and foothills, the Pacific Ocean and the beach are only a 45minute drive. The coast is often foggy and cold, however, especially in the summer, so your escape from the summer heat in Palo Alto may be more refreshing than you planned. If you want to mix some shopping, eating and beach walking, your best bet is to head for Half Moon Bay.

While most visitors arrive by car, it is feasible to land at either San Francisco or San Jose airports, connect to nearby Caltrain stations in Millbrae and Santa Clara (via BART at SFO and shuttle bus at San Jose) and arrive at the downtown Palo Alto train station. From there, the Marguerite Shuttle provides service to various locations on the Stanford campus and to selected other stops in Palo Alto. The Sheraton and Westin hotels are both located next to the train station. Airport van shuttle services regularly operate from both airports to Palo Alto and Stanford. Kate Robertson Parking in Palo Alto Parking in most downtown Palo Alto lots is free for two hours (and parking garages for three hours) during weekdays and Saturdays, after which a car is not allowed to re-park in the same "color zone" the rest of the day. It can be very difficult to find parking in the evening, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. A number of the better restaurants offer valet parking. Several parking structures are located just off University Avenue, which makes evening parking in Palo Alto much easier. Parking on Campus See page 17. get quicker attention and excellent care. No appointments are available except for pediatric urgent care, where they are strongly advised. Hours are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the year. The Stanford Hospital emergency room (open 24 hours) functions as a regional trauma center, so there can be long delays for patients with non-emergency conditions. The closest Kaiser Permanente Medical Center is located at 1150 Veterans Blvd., Redwood City (650-299-2000). Dialing 911 for a medical emergency in Palo Alto or at Stanford will result in a response from Palo Alto Fire Department paramedics, which will transport patients to the Stanford emergency room. For after-hours prescriptions, there are several 24-hour pharmacies, including Walgreens, 4170 El Camino Real, Palo Alto, 650-858-1898, or 121 El Camino Real, Mountain View, 650-961-7555; and Safeway, 525 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, 650-326-5640. safety & emergencies Palo Alto is an extremely safe community and other than obvious precautions when out late at night, visitors should feel comfortable freely exploring the city without concern for their safety. Use common sense and extra care when using the pedestrian tunnels at the train stations, and avoid walking alone at night. Downtown Palo Alto is a vibrant night spot that attracts many out-of-towners and a generally harmless homeless population, so some additional care is warranted late at night. Urgent medical care is accessible from either the Urgent Care department at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (located at 795 El Camino, between Town & Country Village and the Westin Hotel -- adults, 650321-412; pediatric 650-853-2958) or the emergency room at Stanford University Hospital, (300 Pasteur Drive -- located at the back of the hospital off of Quarry Road; 650-723-5111.) Follow "Emergency" signs posted on streets in the area. If you have a non-life-threatening medical problem go to Palo Alto Medical Foundation Urgent Care. You'll Pet emergencies Pet emergencies can be dealt with at the South Peninsula Veterinary Emergency Clinic, 3045 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto (650-494-1461) or Adobe Animal Hospital, 396 First St., Los Altos (650-948-9661).
