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.

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 24 and 25. 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, completed for the Bourn family in 1917, allows visitors to enjoy a collection of 17th- and 18thcentury antiques. The spectacular gardens — made up of terraces, pathways, pools, lawns, foliage, trees and flower beds — are perfectly groomed and everchanging with the seasons. 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 plant collections, a stroll through the exquisite gardens will not leave you disappointed. The gardens and estate are open to visitors from mid-February through October. Allied Arts Guild (2) 75 Arbor Road, Menlo Park; 650-322-2405; alliedartsguild.org Located in nearby Menlo Park, the Allied Arts Guild is an oasis of shops, gardens, artists’ studios and a cafe. The historic site has carried out the founders’ original vision of a European-style crafts guild and created a lovely en-

vironment for shopping, eating and relaxing. The Guild houses numerous studios and shops of various artists, ranging from furniture repair to pottery making. 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. 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. Located at Sunset Magazine’s headquarters in nearby Menlo Park, the display garden offers a glimpse of architecture and foliage from the major climate zones of the West. 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 entire display garden is open for free, self-guided tours, weekdays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (except holidays and the weeks surrounding Celebration Weekend in June). Cantor Arts Center (4) 328 Lomita Drive (at Museum Way); 650-498-1480; 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. Located next to the museum are the Rodin Sculpture Garden, the largest collection of Auguste Rodin bronzes outside of Paris, and, on the other side, the Anderson Collection, a new building housing modern

No dogs or bicycles are allowed. Open approximately from sunrise to sunset. 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 work space 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. Gamble Garden (8) 1431 Waverley St., Palo Alto; 650-329-1356; gamblegarden.org Willed to the City of Palo Alto by Elizabeth F. Gamble in 1981, Gamble Garden features a 1902 Colonial/ Georgian Revival house and formal, working and demonstration gardens.

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.

The perimeter of the Quad at Stanford is lined with long, arched arcades.

Tower, the university’s most visible landmark and just a short walk from the Quad (see page 8). The Hoover Institution (650-723-1754, hoover.org), at the corner of Serra and Galvez streets, offers a variety of free historical exhibits throughout the year in the Herbert Hoover Memorial Exhibit Pavilion, adjacent to Hoover Tower (Tue.-Sat. 11 a.m.-4 p.m.). Art and architecture Art lovers will find many great Stanford resources, but be sure and visit the Cantor Arts Center, which offers free admission (see page 6), and the adjacent Rodin Sculpture Garden. While on campus, check out the Stanford Papua New Guinea Sculpture Garden (Santa Teresa Street, off Campus Drive West), near Roble Hall, or go on a selfguided Outdoor Sculpture Walk (museum.stanford. edu/view/outdoor_sculpture.html). Architecture fans may try to visit Hanna House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, based on a hexagonal module. Reservations are required for tours, which are offered on the first and third Sunday and the second and fourth Saturday of each month. Three tours are held each day, beginning at 11 a.m. Visitors must be age 12 or older. Cost is $10 per person plus a $5 parking fee. Call 650-725-8352 or visit hannahousetours.stanford.edu. Sports Stanford’s intercollegiate athletic program has been consistently rated the best in the nation, and visitors can usually choose from multiple sports events to attend every weekend when school is in session. Stanford athletics venues are all located on the eastern side of the campus, a short walk from Town & Country Village at the corner of El Camino Real and Embarcadero Road. For up-to-date information, see the Stanford Athletics website (gostanford.com), call 800-782-6367 or visit PA Sports Online (pasportsonline.com). Parking Pay parking is available daily either in coin-metered spaces ($1.50 per hour, two-hour limit) enforced from 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. or at pay-and-display or pay-by-space lots. Machines at lots accept credit cards, cash or coins. Visitor day permits can be purchased for $12 at 340 Bonair Siding, Stanford (on weekdays, 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m.). The two closest lots to 295 Galvez St., a starting point for campus tours, are on the corner of Galvez Street and Nelson Road, and Galvez Street and Memorial Way. Other lots are scattered around the periphery of campus. Call 650-723-9362 or visit transportation.stanford.edu.

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 8), 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 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, 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.

For the Results you Expect

Carol Blitzer

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 runner takes advantage of the hilly and paved trails at the Stanford Dish.

org/golf), located next to the Baylands at the end 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; 650903-4653; 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 (3160 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View; 650-965-7474; 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 away. 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.

safety & transportation Palo Alto is an extremely safe community, and other than obvious precautions when out at night, visitors should feel comfortable freely exploring the city. Downtown Palo Alto is a vibrant spot for night life that attracts many out-of-towners and a generally harmless homeless population. Use common sense and extra care when using the pedestrian tunnels at the train stations, and avoid walking alone at night. 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, 650-853-6558; pamf.org) or the emergency room at Stanford University hospital (900 Quarry Road Extension; 650-723-5111; stanfordhealthcare.org). Follow “Emergency” signs posted on streets in the area. 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. Palo Alto and Stanford are served by a transportation network that includes the regional Caltrain system (800-660-4287; for hearing impaired TTY 650-508-6448;

caltrain.com), which operates frequent trains between San Francisco and San Jose; the free Stanford Marguerite shuttle bus service (650-724-9339; transportation. stanford.edu/marguerite/); 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 Company, 408-777-7777 or 650-999-9999) and rides through services like Uber and Lyft 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 shuttle bus at San Jose) 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. Shuttle services regularly operate from both airports to the area. 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), after which a car is not allowed to re-park in the same “color zone” the rest of the day (no enforcement on weekends). Day permits are also available. It can be difficult to find parking in the evening, especially on Friday and Saturday. For more info visit cityofpaloalto.org and search for “parking.” For info on parking at Stanford, see page 16.

Patrice HorvatH

President’s Club & President’s Roundtable

Cell 650.520.7675 phorvath@apr.com www.patricehorvath.com CalBRE# 01708418 “…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.” Ryan G. 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 “…We went with Patrice from a personal recommendation and she fully lived up to our expectation. We were especially impressed with the local knowledge and negotiation which won us the property we wanted. We will recommend her without hesitation.” T. Thorn Mountain View Buyer 167 S.
