Palo Alto
Palo Alto is one of our favorite local peninsula neighborhoods — it's a FUN place to eat, drink, shop, hang-out and people-watch! University Avenue is THE place to go. The main thoroughfare and its side streets are filled with great restaurants, cozy cafés, coffee houses, and fun bars — there's always a buzz, especially on weekends and evenings.

The popular Silicon Valley locale is conveniently located about 35 miles south of downtown San Francisco and close to SF International Airport. Palo Alto is a popular venue for both business and pleasure — it's home to many high-tech companies... and Stanford University is just minutes away.

Palo Alto Festival of the Arts
Palo Alto Festival of the Arts — a FUN weekend street festival — takes place annually in late summer, usually around the end of August. It's one of our favorite peninsula street fairs — fun arts & crafts, beautiful jewelry, gourmet food and wine, live entertainment... and more!
