Silicon Valley and Bay Area Roundtrip


Silicon Valley and the greater Bay Area consists of so many small towns and city districts that it is often necessary to use a map. Luckily this wasn’t my first time traveling there and I prepared an action plan with places to visit.

UC Berkeley and Stanford University

Some of the most catchy places to visit outside San Francisco were UC Berkeley in Oakland and Stanford University in Palo Alto with their magnificent campuses wide open to visitors seeking to explore acres of land filled with greatness. US universities are known for their campus culture, they are basically towns on their own. The walking tour of the campus can give you the idea of how it is like to be a student there.

A bit further down south is the Googleplex in Mountain View. Mountain View has a small town-ish feel with the bypassing self-driving cars being the only sign that it is one of the most high tech places in the world.

My last stop was at Apple in Cupertino at the famous 1 Infinite Loop address. Cupertino is also a small town with narrow roads and plenty of residential areas. A big building project, like the new Apple ‘Spaceship’ HQ, has created a lot of chaos and traffic jams there.
