For many, holidays in Palo Alto are a chance to learn about tech and innovation. If you want to see why so much creativity is born here, walk through Stanford University and see if any lightbulbs go off in your head. Visit the Hewlett-Packard House and Garage (known as the "Birthplace of the Silicon Valley") and tour the Palo Alto Art Center to see what new exhibit is on display.
You can also cycle around town, trek through the Arastradero Preserve or chill at Mitchell Park. If you get hungry, you’ve got options ranging from Mexican cuisine to Vietnamese fare along El Camino Real, University Avenue and other popular thoroughfares. Pubs, cafes and various social spots are clustered around the university too, not far from Palo Alto hotels.
San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is just 32 km from most Palo Alto accommodation options, and dropping your bags is as easy as jumping on the Caltrain. It makes reaching other areas in the Bay Area simple, so you can spend a few nights in San Francisco accommodation too. Getting around Palo Alto is straightforward via bus, car, bike or on foot. If you want wheels, we’ve got tons of car hire options.
