INTRODUCING ALEXANDER’S PATISSERIE COMING SOON TO DOWNTOWN MOUNTAIN VIEW

Welcome Whether you are visiting for business or 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 the Palo Alto area so special.

André Zandona

Palo Alto is home to Nobel Prize winners, Silicon Valley CEOs, venture capital firms, Hewlett-Packard 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 in the 1970s as the nation’s leading high-technology research center paved the way for 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 campus. But at a minimum any visit should also include a walk or drive through the tree-lined residential neighborhoods (among the costliest in the nation), 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.

The Palo Alto and Stanford area offers things to do for all ages and interests. Our favorite recommendations for out-of-town visitors are listed below.

Cantor Arts Center (4) 328 Lomita Drive (at Museum Way); 650-723-4177; www.museum.stanford.edu Stanford family members 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 Papua New Guinea Sculpture Garden and numerous other 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 café overlooking the sculpture gardens. Open Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Hoover Tower (5) Stanford University; 650-723-2053; www.stanford. edu/dept/visitorinfo/plan/guides/hoover.html 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 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 make a visit to Hoover Tower a truly one-of-a-kind Palo Alto experience. Cost is $2 for adults and $1 for seniors and children under 12. Open daily 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Stanford Dish Walk (6) Along Junipero Serra Boulevard, between Page Mill Road and Alpine Road, Stanford Rain or shine, you’ll find hundreds of locals and Stanford students walking or jogging the trail at The Dish, named after the large old radio-telescope used for research in the Stanford foothills and visible from throughout the area. The paved trail climbs the hills and offers spectacular views of the Peninsula, the campus and the coastal mountains. The main loop trail is 3.5 miles and takes about an hour and 15 minutes to walk. Most visitors park on Stanford Avenue, then enter through the gate at Junipero Serra Boulevard. The Alpine gate entrance is near Interstate 280 on Alpine Road at Piers Lane; the trail from there intersects with the main loop trail near the big dish and adds about a mile and a half to the full loop. Be sure not to park on the side streets where Stanford residential parking permits are required or you’ll be ticketed. No dogs or bicycles are allowed. Hours: sunrise to sunset (from 6 or 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 to 8 p.m. depending on the season). 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.

stanford university The Stanford University campus is one of the largest and most beautiful in the country and deserves a visit regardless of the reason for your stay in the Palo Alto area. Guided one-hour walking tours leave every day at 11 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. from the Stanford Visitor Center, 295 Galvez St. (at Campus Drive); 650-723-2560 — Visitor Information Services; visitorinformation.stanford.edu.

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; 650-723-1762; 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. and Sunday, 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.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 is 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. Admission to the tower observation deck (daily 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; closed during academic recess) is $2 for adults and $1 for children and seniors. The Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace (650-723-1754), at the corner of Serra and Galvez streets, offers free exhibits on President Herbert Hoover and his wife, Lou Henry Hoover, and various historical exhibits throughout the year in the Herbert Hoover Memorial Exhibit Pavilion, adjacent to Hoover Tower (Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.-4 p.m.). www.hoover.org Art and architecture Art lovers will find many great Stanford resources, but be sure and visit the Cantor Arts Center (see page 8) 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 join an Outdoor Art Tour, leaving from the Main Quad, near the top of the Oval.

The Palo Alto area offers recreational opportunities for almost every interest, from the casual walker to those looking for serious hiking, biking, golfing, tennis and other activities. 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 9), located at the end of Embarcadero Road, offers miles of flat walking trails 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 18-hole, 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; 650-724-0944 for golf course, 650498-4461 for driving range; http://stanfordgolfcourse. com), a beautiful and long course that is operated by the university for its faculty, students and the private members who wait years to join. Mountain View’s Shoreline Links (2940 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View; 650-903-4653; www.shorelinelinks.com), also located in the baylands, is another good option.

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 café, 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; 650-330-2230; 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; 650-965-3779; 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.

recreation

Water shimmers at the Baylands on a sunny/cloudy winter day.

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 back.

Public tennis courts in Palo Alto are generally well maintained and easy to access. 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 Road. Both are lit at night. There are many courts on the Stanford campus, but you are expected to have a university affiliation.

The Dish above Stanford University is a popular spot for walking or running.

FIND OUT WHAT’S BLOOMIN’ IN DOWNTOWN PALO ALTO THIS SPRING

GREAT

EATS

THINGS IDEAS! There are dozens of great places to shop and eat and thousands of great ideas being generated every day. Only in downtown Palo Alto.

Palo Alto and Stanford are served by a transportation network that includes the regional Caltrain (800-6604287; for hearing impaired TDD 650-508-6448; www. caltrain.com) system, which operates frequent trains up and down the Peninsula between San Francisco and San Jose, the free Stanford Marguerite shuttle bus (650-723-9362; transportation.stanford.edu) service, local taxis (Yellow Checker Cab Company, 408777-7777 or 650-999-9999) and an extensive network of pedestrian and bike paths. 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 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. 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 difficult to find parking in the evening, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. A number of the restaurants offer valet parking. Parking on Campus See page 18.

getting around

A large sign points the way to Stanford Hospital’s emergency room.

s a f e t y & e m e r g encie s 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 Real, between Town & Country Village and the Westin Hotel — adults, 650321-4121; pediatric 650-853-6558) or the emergency room at Stanford University Hospital, (900 Quarry Road Extension; 650-723-5111.) Follow “Emergency” signs posted on streets in the area.

Veronica Weber

If you have a non-life-threatening medical problem, go to Palo Alto Medical Foundation Urgent Care. You’ll 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).

Bicycles can be rented through Bay Area Bike Share, located near train stations, to trek across town.

Dialing 911 for a medical emergency in Palo Alto or at Stanford will result in a response from Palo Alto Fire Department paramedics, who will transport patients to the Stanford emergency room. For after-hours prescriptions, Walgreens at 121 E. El Camino Real, Mountain View, (650-961-7555) is open 24 hours. 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, 4470 El Camino Real, Los Altos (650-948-9661).

Tired of California taxes? Meet your Nevada neighbor, Lake Tahoe

Sierra

Call Jean Merkelbach at 775.588.0609 for more insight into Nevada’s tax advantages and Lake Tahoe living. When you’re ready to make the move, Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty just happens to represent Lake Tahoe’s most desirable estates and properties.

ou already know Lake Tahoe is a mountain paradise. The lake. The mountains. The seasons. The recreation. Now, consider that Nevada offers the outrageous possibility of ultra-low property taxes. No personal income tax. Not even an estate tax. It’s why so many former California executives find living here so profitable. Whether it’s a retirement move, a second home, a vacation property, or a business relocation, we’ve got the beautiful solution to the ugly tax pitfalls of California.

s i e r r a s o t h e b y s r e a l t y. c o m

And with over $145 million in sales in 2013, Jean Merkelbach is uniquely qualified to help you with your Lake Tahoe real estate needs.
