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 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.

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.

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.

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 6), 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 docent-led and self-guided walking tours. Grab the clubs Golfers will find the Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course, located at 1875 Embarcadero Road, both challenging and affordable. It is currently a par 67 course, featuring 18 holes. Call 650-856-0881 or 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 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. 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. 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. 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) in Mountain View 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. Medical care is available either at the Urgent Care department at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (795 El Camino Real; adults, 650-853-2959; 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. 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 nonemergency 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) 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. 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). Day permits are also available, costing $17.50 per day for downtown and $7 per day for California Avenue. Weekday parking in downtown’s residential areas is also limited to two hours. It can be difficult to find parking in the evening, especially on Friday and Saturday. For more information, visit paloalto.parkingguide.com.

Restaurants More than 150 restaurants call the Midpeninsula home With continuing growth in cities like Palo Alto, Mountain View and Los Altos, restaurants continually move in and out, keeping the Midpeninsula restaurant scene hopping. From comfort food to cutting-edge cuisine, the area has become a hotspot for restaurateurs hoping to capture the gastronomic zeitgeist. 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. MOST EXCITING RECENT OPENING ... Arguably the most exciting opening of the past year is Bird Dog — a contemporary small-plates restaurant that opened at 420 Ramona St. in Palo Alto in November. It’s the brainchild of well-known Santa Barbara chef Robbie Wilson and his wife, Emily Perry Wilson, who teamed up with Silicon Valley power couple Chamath Palihapitiya and Brigette Lau to open the restaurant. Robbie Wilson, who is now living in Menlo Park, did his culinary training in France. He has since worked in many renowned kitchens, including The French Laundry in Yountville and Nobu in New York City. The Bird Dog menu is split into three sections — raw, proteins and vegetables/

grains — with intriguing items found nowhere else in Palo Alto, such as wood-grilled avocado with ponzu and ocean lettuce, and delicate Thai snapper with lime, chili, sesame and pecan. And what’s with that name? Bird dog is both a term — “It means, by definition, to seek out and return with dog(-like) determination,” Robbie explained — and an actual breed that is trained to hunt or retrieve birds or small game animals. “When you seek

something out with determination of bringing it back — essentially, we’re doing that every night,” he said. MOST ANTICIPATED OPENING OF 2016 ... Easily, the most anticipated opening of the new year will be a new Los Altos outpost of Manresa Bread, the popular bakery spinoff of David Kinch’s celebrated Manresa restaurant in Los Gatos. Andrew Burnham, partner at Manresa, said they’ve long been eyeing Los Altos as one piece in a larger expansion puzzle. They took notice of a changing downtown landscape, with Google co-founder Sergrey Brin buying up real estate and new developments being built as well as new restaurants moving in. “A couple years ago, we started seeing a lot of activity,” Burnham said. “It’s not New York City; it’s not the most vibrant nightlife scene at the moment, but things have been changing and hopefully we’ll play a role in that.” Burnham said the Los Altos Manresa Bread will be similar to the existing bakery, which opened in February, not far from its Michelin-starred parent restaurant. But Los Altos will have full espresso and coffee service with Verve Coffee, something the Los Gatos bakery doesn’t yet have. There will also be cold-brew coffee flowing from a nitrogen tap, kefir on tap, and all of the famed breads and baked goods. “Weekly staples” include levain bread, brioche, sourdough baguettes, croissants, kouign amanns and more, plus seasonal goods like pumpernickel buckwheat rye, fruit-and-nut loaves, polenta cakes, quiches and tartines.
