Welcome

The Midpeninsula offers something for everyone 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 up Palo Alto and the rest of the Midpeninsula. 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. Though 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.

Veronica Weber

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, including ones in Menlo Park and Mountain View.

HP Garage Known as the birthplace of Silicon Valley, the HP Garage is a symbol of innovation and entrepreneurship. College friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard purchased the garage in 1938 as a works pace to develop their own company, and the modest building served as a research lab and a development and manufacturing workshop. However, 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 electronics pioneers chasing their dreams of innovation. 367 Addison Ave., Palo Alto Junior Museum & Zoo Children can explore hands-on science exhibits and experience a multifarious community of live animals at the Junior Museum & Zoo.

Shopping Everything visitors need — and want — around town While Stanford Shopping Center (stanfordshop. com) has it all, Palo Alto also features a vibrant downtown shopping district; a quieter but still popular shopping and restaurant sector surrounding California Avenue, just south of the Stanford campus; and Town & Country Village (tandcvillage.com), a specialty center on El Camino Real across from Stanford Stadium. Downtown Palo Alto is crowded on Friday and Saturday nights, when restaurant reservations are advised and parking can be difficult. Many downtown retailers are open in the evenings to cater to the bar and restaurant crowd. California Avenue features boutiques and a large number of restaurants popular with local residents, as does Castro Street in Mountain View. Speaking of beyond Palo Alto, visitors can also find shopping in the downtown areas of Los Altos and Menlo Park. Mountain View’s San Antonio Shopping Center has a selection of stores and restaurants, and The Village at San Antonio Center, a newly renovated portion of the complex, supplies boutiques and fine dining options. If visitors find themselves needing the basics, grocery and drug stores are conveniently located throughout the Midpeninsula. One of the biggest Safeway stores in the entire chain is located on El

Stanford University Campus offers tours, arts and sports Stanford University offers one of the largest and most beautiful campuses in the country and deserves a visit regardless of the reason for your stay in the area. Tours Guided 70 minute, student-led walking tours leave every day at 11 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. from the Stanford Visitor Center, 295 Galvez St. Call 650-723-2560 or visit visit.stanford.edu. 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 Quad is the academic center of the university, with the classrooms and offices of various departments located around the perimeter. The non-denominational Memorial Church, located at 450 Serra Mall, is generally open each weekday. Visitors may explore the art and architecture Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 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 more information, call 650-723-1762 or visit web.stanford.edu/group/religiouslife/cgi-bin/wordpress/memorial-church. For a great view of the entire campus and Palo Alto, take the elevator up to the top of the 285-foot tall Hoover Tower, the university’s most visible landmark and just a short walk from the Quad. See page 8 for more details. The Hoover Institution (hoover.org), at the corner of Serra and Galvez streets, offers free historical exhibits throughout the year in the Herbert Hoover Memorial Exhibit Pavilion, which is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is located adjacent to Hoover Tower. Art and architecture Art lovers will find many great Stanford resources along Palm Drive’s expanding Arts District, but be sure to visit the Cantor Arts Center, which offers free admission. It is open six days per week, Wednesday through

Recreation Trails, golf courses and tennis courts keep visitors busy Out-of-town visitors can walk, hike or bike their way through the Midpeninsula. If none of those sound like your speed, perhaps a round of golf or a few laps in the pool will get you going. Walk, run and explore For walkers and runners, the Stanford “Dish” loop offers almost 4 miles of paved path that winds through the Stanford foothills with tremendous views of the university, Palo Alto and entire Peninsula. The Baylands Nature Preserve (see page 8), offers miles of flat walking trails that allow visitors to explore the area’s extensive wildlife habitat. The Pearson-Arastradero Preserve, in the foothills beyond Stanford near 1530 Arastradero Road, has a network of easy trails ideal for one- to two-hour hikes and a small unstaffed visitor’s center with exhibits. Walkers with an interest in history and architecture will enjoy one of several historical walks around Palo Alto’s neighborhoods. Palo Alto Stanford Heritage (www.pastheritage.org) offers walking tours and brochures for self-guided ones. Grab the clubs Golfers can practice their swing at the driving range and sand-pit area of the Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course, located at 1875 Embarcadero Road, while the 18-hole links area undergoes renovations through Fall 2017 that will integrate 55 acres of native plants and adjacent wetlands into the course. Call 650-856-0881 or visit cityofpaloalto.org/golf.

The “Stanford Dish Loop” provides joggers almost 4 miles of paved path that winds through the Stanford foothills. Palo Alto Weekly file photo.

Those with a Stanford connection (alumni or parents) can play at the Stanford Golf Course. It’s located at 198 Junipero Serra Blvd., Stanford. At this venue, visitors will find a beautiful and long course that is operated by the university for faculty, students and private members who wait years to join. Call 650-724-0944 for the golf shop and 650-498-4461 for the driving range. Also, visit golfcourse.stanford.edu.

Swing the racket Palo Alto offers many public tennis courts. Those closest to hotels are the courts at Palo Alto High School (enter from 25 Churchill Ave.) and at Rinconada Park (located at 777 Embarcadero Road). Both are lit at night. There are many courts on the Stanford campus, but you are expected to have a university affiliation. Bike around town The area prides itself on accommodating and encouraging bike riding. The most popular rides use Alpine, Arastradero, Portola and Sand Hill roads to create loops of different lengths. Skilled riders wanting to cycle several hours or all day ride up to Skyline Boulevard and down to the coast and back. In Mountain View, try biking around Shoreline Lake, located in the Baylands just south of Palo Alto.

The Midpeninsula offers a variety of options for bicycling enthusiasts, including routes through the Santa Cruz Mountains to the coastline. Photo by Veronica Weber

At Mountain View’s Shoreline Links, located at 2940 N. Shoreline Blvd., golfers can play on the 750-acre course that offers 18 holes and acres of water hazards. Call 650903-4653 or visit shorelinelinks.com.

Splash the day away Both Palo Alto and Menlo Park offer lap swimming through their municipal pools — Rinconada Pool (cityofpaloalto.org/aquatics) and Burgess Memorial Pool (menloswim.com). But if you’re up for stand-up paddleboarding, windsurfing or renting pedalboats, rowboats, canoes or kayaks, Shoreline Lake (shorelinelake.com) is the place to go. Drive to the coast Palo Alto is located between the bay and foothills, and the Pacific Ocean and the beach are only a 45-minute drive away. If you want to mix together shopping, eating and beach walking, your best bet is to head for Half Moon Bay.

Safety & Transportation Medical services and transportation are available at all hours Palo Alto is an extremely safe community, and other than taking 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. Medical care is available either at the Urgent Care department at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (795 El Camino Real; adults, 650-321-4121; pediatric, 650-8536558; pamf.org) or the emergency room at Stanford Hospital (900 Quarry Road Extension; 650-723-5111; stanfordhealthcare.org). For non-life-threatening medical problems, go to Palo Alto Medical Foundation Urgent Care. It’s open daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome, and appointments are only available for pediatric urgent care. The Stanford Hospital emergency room, which is open 24/7, functions as a regional trauma center, so there can be long delays for patients with non-emergency conditions. 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, is open 24/7. Call 650-961-7555. Palo Alto and Stanford are served by a transportation

network that includes the regional Caltrain system (800660-4287; for hearing impaired, 650-508-6448 (TTY); caltrain. com), which operates frequent trains between San Francisco and San Jose; the free Palo Alto Shuttle (650-329-2441; cityofpaloalto.org/shuttle); the free Stanford Marguerite shuttle bus service (650-724-9339; marguerite.stanford.edu); the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority bus system (408-321-2300, vta.org); and an extensive network of pedestrian and bike paths. Local taxis (Yellow Checker Cab Co., 408-777-7777 or 650-999-9999) and rides through services such as Lyft and Uber are also available. While most visitors drive, 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 VTA bus, Route 10, at SJC) and arrive at the downtown Palo Alto train station. From there, the Marguerite Shuttle provides service to locations on the Stanford campus and select stops in Palo Alto. Private airport shuttles regularly operate from both airports. During weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., parking in downtown Palo Alto and California Avenue lots is free for two hours (and parking garages for three hours). There is no enforcement on weekends. Day permits are also available, costing $17.50 per day for downtown and $7 per day for California Avenue. It can be difficult to find parking in the evening, especially on Friday and Saturday. For more information, visit paloalto.parkingguide.com. For Stanford parking information, see page 16.

Restaurants More than 150 restaurants call the Midpeninsula home Choosing where to dine along the Midpeninsula isn’t an easy decision. With more than 150 restaurants serving everything from comfort food to cutting-edge cuisine, the region has become a dining hotspot for restaurateurs hoping to capture the gastronomic zeitgeist. Here’s some favorite eateries locals voted the best in their cities for Embarcadero Media’s annual reader’s choice contest, Best Of. Embarcadero Media food blogger Elena Kadvany keeps local readers up-to-date on all of the restaurant goings on. Read on for the very latest food-related happenings, and stay current by reading Kadvany’s blog, Peninsula Foodist, at paloaltoonline.com/blogs. BEST PLACES TO SPLURGE ... Evvia 420 Emerson St., Palo Alto, 650-326-0983; evvia.net Take a trip to Greece with a visit to Evvia Estiatorio in downtown Palo Alto, known for quality food and even higher quality service. The longtime restaurant manages to combine fine dining with comfort as an open kitchen with a wood-burning oven turns out traditional Greek fare. Be prepared to be treated not as a diner but more like a long-lost relative when you walk through the doors. La Fontaine 186 Castro St., Mountain View, 650-968-2300; lafontainerestaurant.com This French and Italian fusion restaurant has proved itself to be a hot spot, with readers naming it the best place for fine dining, as well as having the best outdoor dining and as the best place for a business lunch. La Fontaine offers an aura of class and professionalism with a menu that strives for high cuisine. Popular dishes include the Burgundy-braised short ribs and the salmon Wellington, which is salmon stuffed with leeks and rock shrimp that’s wrapped in puff pastry and served over saffron risotto. BEST DINING WITH KIDS ... Palo Alto Creamery 566 Emerson St., Palo Alto, 650-323-3131; paloaltocreamery.com Family owned for more than 85 years, the Palo Alto Creamery Fountain & Grill has remained in Palo Alto longer than most of its residents. When locals return to town, the Creamery is often on a short list of places to visit first, just to get a quick fix of their famous milkshakes, available in just about every flavor imaginable. In addition to milkshakes, the Creamery offers a great selection of sandwiches, burgers and other diner-style food. It may be rare to find a Palo Altan who has never experienced the Creamery firsthand — an indication that it is absolutely worth the visit. Buck’s of Woodside 3062 Woodside Road, Woodside, 650-851-8010; buckswoodside.com With an alligator carpet lining the floor and a 6-foot-tall Statue of Liberty welcoming guests as they open the door, Buck’s of Woodside entices children of all ages to a dining experience like no other.

Young visitors are enticed by the whimsical feeling of the restaurant, attributed to its extraordinary decor, and some of the items featured on the children’s

menu, such as “pizza for pizza heads.” Jamis MacNiven, who, with his wife Margaret, owns Buck’s, says that “parents sometimes tell us we ruin kids for other restaurants because we let them run wild. We give them a treasure hunt and put gummy frogs on every plate. What’s not to love?” BEST MEAL UNDER $20 ... Asian Box Town & Country Village, 855 El Camino Real, Palo Alto, 650-391-9305; 142 Castro St., Mountain View; 650-584-3947; asianbox.com This eatery, with locations in both Palo Alto and Mountain View, put a decidedly improved spin on the entire concept of “fast food.” It certainly isn’t grease- and salt-laden. Asian Box offers fresh, high-quality choices that include hormone- and antibiotic-free ingredients. Start your box with a choice of rices, Asian salad or rice noodles; choose a succulent meat or other protein; add in vegetables and other toppings; then top it off with a tasty sauce, from tamarind vinaigrette to fiery sriracha. BEST HAPPY HOUR/BAR ... Calave Wine Bar 299 California Ave., #115, Palo Alto, 650-521-0443; calave.com If the glamorous ambiance at Calave Wine Bar isn’t enough to grab your attention, the bar bites (try the truffled popcorn and orange-coriander spiced mixed nuts) and $2 discount on wines and craft beers offered during happy hour at the California Avenue wine bar should certainly do it. Happy hour is Monday through Friday, 4-6 p.m. Get there early to claim a seat at the high communal table or cozy, low-slung sofa, and raise a glass of vino to the end of a stressful work day. Molly MaGees 241 Castro St., Mountain View, 650-961-0108; mollysmtview.com Molly MaGees has been providing Mountain View with an authentic Irish pub experience since it was first established in 1997. This gives customers the kind of laid back, homey atmosphere perfect for knocking back drinks and watching soccer or listening to their inhouse DJs on weekends.

Best Steak Restaurant — Sundance The Steakhouse Since its opening in 1974, beef & martinis have never gone out of style at Sundance The Steakhouse, a Palo Alto institution. The atmosphere is very clubby with fireplaces, dark wood, sports memorabilia & plush leather booths tucked into the many nooks throughout the dinning room. Famous for their slow-roasted prime rib, they also offer fresh seafood, lobster tail & of course their specially aged prime graded steaks. The menu is supported by extensive award winning wine list making this steakhouse one of the best on the Peninsula. 1921 El Camino Real, Palo Alto, (650) 312-6798; sundancethesteakhouse.com

Hall of Fame for Best Bar/Lounge and Latin American Cuisine — La Bodeguita del Medio With a name that the business translates to “the little bar in the middle of the block,” La Bodeguita del Medio  certainly exceeds expectations. Modeled after an establishment of the same name in Havana, Cuba, La Bodeguita del Medio is known for traditional Cuban fare, a lively atmosphere and, certainly not least, its mojito cocktails. While the original bar was a known hangout of visionaries such as Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Neruda, you’re sure to meet someone interesting over great food and drinks at this California Avenue location. 463 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, (650) 326-7762; labodeguita.com

Best Dentist —Dr. Christine Hansen

Christine Hansen DDS & Roberta Jurash DDS

The dentistry office of Dr. Christine Hansen and Dr. Roberta Jurash is on a roll, claiming the Dentist category of Best Of for three years running. When we’re talking about something as important and sensitive as one’s pearly whites, that makes a statement. The staff performs a full suite of general, restorative and cosmetic dental procedures and services, working to keep teeth and gums healthy as well as improve their appearance for a confidence boost. Team members work to see patients quickly in emergency situations and are proud to offer comfortable care in a relaxing and tranquil environment. 416 Waverley St., Suite A, Palo Alto, (650) 326-3290; christinehansendds.com

BEST RESTAURANTS & BEST FOOD

Best American Restaurant, Happy Hour — Menlo Grill Bistro & Bar The awards for both favorite American restaurant and place for “happy hour” go to the Menlo Grill Bistro & Bar located in the Stanford Park Hotel. The warm and inviting neighborhood restaurant features American comfort dishes prepared with fresh, sustainable and healthy ingredients. Happy hour is offered between 3 and 5 p.m., when the grill offers five drinks that are sold for $5 each, along with shareable food items, also sold for $5. The Grill serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night drinks, snacks and desserts. It is one of the only local restaurants to offer late night dining. 100 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, (650) 330-2790; menlogrill.com

Best Casual Dining, Outdoor Dining, Independent Coffee/Tea House, Place to Meet People — Cafe Borrone Enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner outside or indoors at Cafe Borrone has been a favorite pastime of area residents for more than 25 years. Marina, Rose and Roy Borrone continue to embrace the cafe community with their passion for people, food and the arts. All dishes are house-made from scratch, from minestrone soup to pappardelle. Their quality of food since ’89 has been rooted in a conscious effort to offer sustainable, local and organic items. Working with local farms is part of the fun! The cafe also runs season art exhibits and hosts jazz and other live music events. 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, (650) 327-0830; cafeborrone.com
