Welcome

Veronica Weber

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 the Palo Alto area so special. Palo Alto’s 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.

attractions 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. The numbers shown in parentheses are the location markers on the map on pages 32 and 33. A trip to the Stanford University campus is the highlight for most visitors, where attractions include Hoover Tower, Memorial Church, Cantor Arts Center, Rodin Sculpture Garden and a central campus bustling with activity (see page 16). Filoli Estate & Gardens (1) 86 Caňada Road, Woodside; 650-364-8300; www.filoli.org Standing for “Fight, Love, Live,” Filoli Gardens is one of the most magnificent remaining country estates and gardens of the early 20th century.

The spectacular gardens, made up of terraces, pathways, pools, lawns, foliage, trees and flowerbeds, are perfectly groomed and ever-changing based on the time of year. The gardens are most known for their collection of more than 500 varieties of roses. Whether your goal is to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere or learn about the various plant collections, a stroll through the exquisite gardens will not leave you disappointed. The gardens and estate are open to

Allied Arts Guild (2) 75 Arbor Road, Menlo Park; 650-322-2405; www.alliedartsguild.org Located in nearby Menlo Park, the Allied Arts Guild is an oasis of shops, gardens, artists’ studios and a cafe.

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 as well as 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 cafe 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 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 Blvd. The Alpine gate entrance is near Interstate 280 on Alpine Rd. 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

8 F all/ Winter Vis itors G uide 20 1 3

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 and photograph the property 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 2.5-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 daily during daylight hours at no charge, a visit to Gamble Garden Center is always a relaxing experience. Palo Alto Baylands (9) East end of Embarcadero Road, Palo Alto; Baylands Nature Interpretive Center: 650-329-2506; Baylands Preserve: 650-617-3156; www.cityofpaloalto. org/gov/depts/csd/parks/preserves/baylands.asp The Baylands protects some of the last remaining salt-marsh and mud-flat habitats on the West Coast. It offers excellent birding year-round. Wintertime high tides bring bird watchers from around the world. In the spring and fall, the Baylands is a prime stopover and destination for birds traveling on the Pacific route of their migration flyway. Computer History Museum (10) 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, software and some of the very first computers from the 1940s and 1950s.

The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Other attractions Kids will enjoy the Palo Alto Junior Museum & Zoo (www.cityofpaloalto.org/jmz), the small Museum of American Heritage (www.moah.org) in downtown Palo Alto, the Hiller Aviation Museum (www.hiller.org) in San Carlos, and Great America (www.cagreatamerica.com), an amusement park located about 10 minutes south of Palo Alto on U.S. Highway 101 in Santa Clara.

I love finding ways to be more water efficient. People don’t realize that over half the water they use is being guzzled up by their landscape. During hot summer weather that often means nearly 600 gallons per day for the average single family home! I share the indoor and outdoor efficiency strategies that I personally use at home, so people know I truly “walk the walk.” Watch fun videos and find links to free programs, workshops and services —plus discover all the rebates available.

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 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, $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. An exhibit called “Art and History: Treasures from the Hoover Library and Archives” opened in April in the Herbert Hoover Memorial Exhibit Pavilion, adjacent to Hoover Tower and will run until December 20. The exhibit showcases art from the Hoover Library and archives, such as political cartoons, posters and drawings. (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 pick up an Outdoor Art Tour, leaving from the Main Quad, near the top of the Oval.

recreation 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.

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.

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 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.

The 1,940-acre Baylands Nature Preserve is home to 15 miles of multi-use trails, wildlife habitats and a visitor center with exhibits and a boardwalk extending into the bay.

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; 650-724-0944 for golf course, 650-498-4461 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 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 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. 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 (continued on next page)

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.

s afet y & emergencies

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.

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.

For after-hours prescriptions, Walgreens at 121 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).

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

Veronica Weber

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, 650321-4121; pediatric 650-853-6558) or the emergency room at Stanford University Hospital, (900 Quarry Road Extension — located at the; 650-723-5111.) Follow “Emergency” signs posted on streets in the area.

A paramedic from Santa Clara County brings a stretcher back to the ambulance after dropping off a patient at Stanford Hospital.
