  • The founding place of Silicon Valley, to see to crush a tear but apart from admire a garage door, the cute little house and the plaque there is not much to see in very discreet part in a quiet street 2 steps from the historic center of Palo Alto, you don't meet there anyone. A few minutes drive to another garage, that of Steve Jobs, even more discreet.

  • Historical and beautiful. The neighborhood is classic Palo Alto
