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.

Michelle Le

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 startup 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 handful of nearby business districts. For our list of 10 sites not to miss while you are visiting, look in the “Attractions” section. Enjoy!

Filoli Estate & Gardens (1) 86 Cañada Road, Woodside; 650-364-8300; 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 43-room estate, built for the Bourn family in 1917, allows visitors to enjoy a collection of 17th- and 18th-century antiques. The spectacular gardens — made up of terraces, pathways, pools, lawns, foliage, trees and flower beds — are perfectly groomed and ever-changing with the seasons. The gardens are most known for their collection of more than 500 varieties of roses.

The Artisan Shop sells handmade art and is operated solely for the benefit of critically ill children at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. Visitors can also enjoy lunch at the charming cafe with a view of the gardens. Sunset Magazine Garden (3) 80 Willow Road, Menlo Park; 650-321-3600; sunset.com If you are the home-gardening type, you won’t want to miss the famous Sunset Magazine Garden.

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-square-foot test area.

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

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.

Learn more about Stanford’s history, architecture, landmarks and art by downloading a Podcast Tour through iTunes. See “Self-Guided Tours” on the above website. If you are short on time, the formal and most dramatic entrance is from Palm Drive, which approaches the Oval, the Main Quad and Memorial Church from the east and downtown Palo Alto.

The non-denominational Memorial Church (450 Serra Mall; 650-723-1762; web.stanford.edu/group/religiouslife/cgi-bin/wordpress/memorial-church/) is generally open each weekday. 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 choral 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., with some closures during academic breaks) is $2 for adults and $1 for children and seniors.

recreation

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 selfguided tours through its website, 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; cityofpaloalto.org), located next to the Baylands at the end

For the Results you Expect

Veronica Weber

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.

A walker at the Dish heads west on the trail.

of Embarcadero Road, both challenging and affordable. The facility includes a clubhouse, 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 shop, 650-498-4461 for driving range; golfcourse.stanford.edu), a beautiful and long course that is operated by the university for faculty, students and private members who wait years to join. Mountain View’s Shoreline Links (2940 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View; 650-903-4653; shorelinelinks.com), also located in the baylands, is another good option. Public tennis courts in Palo Alto are generally well maintained and easy to access. Those closest to hotels are the 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 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; cityofpaloalto.org) and Burgess Memorial Pool (501 Laurel St., Menlo Park; 650-328-7946; menloswim.com). But if you’re up for stand-up paddleboarding, windsurfing or renting pedalboats, rowboats, canoes or kayaks, the Shoreline Aquatic Center (Shoreline Lake, 3160 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View; 650-965-3779; shorelinelake.com) is the place to go. While Palo Alto is located between the Bay and foothills, the Pacific Ocean and the beach are only a 45-minute 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 together shopping, eating and beach walking, your best bet is to head for Half Moon Bay.

getting around

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. Day permits are available for downtown Palo Alto and the California Avenue business district. It can be dif-

safety & emergencies

Urgent medical care is available either at the Urgent Care department at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (795 El Camino Real, between Town & Country Village and the Westin Hotel — adults, 650-321-4121; pediatric 650-8536558; pamf.org) or the emergency room at Stanford University hospital (900 Quarry Road Extension; 650-7235111; stanfordhealthcare.org). 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 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

Veronica Weber

Palo Alto is an extremely safe community, and other than obvious precautions when out at night, visitors should feel comfortable freely exploring the city. 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 spot for night life that attracts many out-of-towners and a generally harmless homeless population, so some additional care is warranted there late at night.

A Santa Clara County ambulance rests after dropping a patient off at Stanford hospital.

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).

Playing soccer has taught me that no one wins a game alone. “Teamwork” best describes how the City of Palo Alto Utilities addresses emergencies such as gas and water leaks. We are usually on the scene for any issues within two hours and for all emergencies, such as gas leaks, within 20 minutes. My field team goes the extra mile and works round the clock during emergencies to take care of Palo Alto residents and businesses at all hours and in all types of weather. My team is here for you when you need us most. And I think that’s a win for everyone. For gas, water or sewer emergencies call (650) 329-2579.

—Jorge Silva Supervisor, Water-Gas-Sewer Operations
