Welcome The Midpeninsula offers something for everyone

W

hether 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.

Baylands Nature Preserve

Pages 8, 20

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. 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.

Shopping Everything visitors need — and want — around town

W

hile 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. For a taste of local produce and music, visitors can head to the downtown Palo Alto or California Avenue farmers’ markets. Downtown’s market (pafarmersmarket. org) welcomes its crowd on Saturday mornings (May 13 Dec. 16) from 8 a.m. until noon. It’s held in the parking lot behind the post office at Hamilton Avenue and Gilman Street. The California Avenue Palo Alto Farmers’ Market

Recreation Trails, golf courses and tennis courts keep visitors busy WALK, RUN AND EXPLORE 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 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 (pastheritage.org) offers walking tours and brochures for self-guided ones.

GOLF 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. 650-856-0881, visit cityofpaloalto.org/golf. 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 operated by the university. 650-724-0944 (golf shop), 650-498-4461 (driving range), golfcourse.stanford.edu. 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. 650-903-4653, shorelinelinks.com.

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.

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

P

alo 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

(800-660-4287; 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.

Wine Tasting Exploring the Peninsula’s vineyards and wineries

M

arch through August is a good time to visit the Peninsula’s many wineries tucked among the redwoods along the hillsides above Silicon Valley. Spring provides a colorful display of wild flowers followed by flowering and ripening vines in the summer. This also is the time when many vineyards host concerts, special tastings and other events before the busy fall harvest begins. The Santa Cruz Mountains — which rise 3,786 feet above the San Francisco Bay at their highest point and stretch the entire length of the Peninsula — are home to hundreds of intimate artisan wineries and private vineyards. The region’s higher elevations, cooler temperatures and frequent fog provide the perfect microclimate for growing Pinot noir and Chardonnay grapes. If you have at least a few hours, it’s worth taking a scenic drive (tinyurl.com/ScenicWineDrive) along the winding mountain roads to visit some of these wineries and take in the panoramic view of Silicon Valley. (Note: Santa Cruz Mountains Passport Days on April 15 and July 15 provide visitors access to more than 50 wineries, including many that are not usually open to the public. Cost: $65. For more information, call 831-6858463; scmwa.com.)

hand-crafted vintages at their estate vineyard in the Peninsula foothills. The micro-winery is known for its Pinot noirs. During the summer, the vineyard hosts monthly jazz concerts. Tours and tastings are available for groups of five or more and must be arranged in advance. Tastings are $20 per person and include a tour with the winemaker.

“…We highly recommend Patrice. She was always prepared, and was always willing to go far out of her way to ensure we were thrilled with her work. Patrice made both the selling and purchasing processes easy to understand, exciting and fun. If and when we decide sell our current home, we wouldn’t consider working with anyone else.” R & D Griggs Sellers and Buyers

“… As both buyers and sellers of a home, Patrice exceeded all of our needs and expectations of the process. Not only was Patrice successful in negotiating a difficult offer, she managed to make a complex transaction function smoothly. She worked diligently to ensure that every small detail was taken care of and that we were more than satisfied with the entire process. Patrice is a true professional and of course will get our highest recommendation to family and friends” D&K Stark Sellers and Buyers “My wife and I interviewed three agents after we decided to sell our house. Choosing the right one would be critical. The other two agents certainly had experience, but Patrice had as much experience, if not more, and had distinctive interpersonal qualities that set her apart from the rest. Patrice demonstrated a level of care and attention that we had not experienced with other agents, even from previous sales and purchases. We recommend Patrice without reservation to anyone looking for the best agent.” Fred and Sylvia Los Altos - Sellers

Always going the extra mile in home preparation, marketing and negotiating – consistently resulting in above average success!

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

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 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
