There's plenty to see and do while in Palo Alto, the heart of the San Francisco Bay area. Take a tour of the Stanford Campus, stroll through local museums and gardens, visit the shops on University Avenue in downtown Palo Alto, or take a quick walk across the street to the nationally recognized Stanford Shopping Center.
Just one block away, the Cal Train offers a 50-minute train ride into downtown San Francisco where you can take in all the sites - Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, or Chinatown. Go wine tasting in the beautiful Napa Valley, just one scenic hour drive away, or head south two hours to see the Pacific Coast, Monterey, and Carmel areas.
