Go Collegiate at Stanford

This March get ready to go collegiate with a Stanford University campus tour. Palo Alto is a beautiful neighborhood that is home to Stanford University and is only ten minutes from our Menlo Park hotel. On a beautiful day, it’s best to tour the campus by bicycle, rent a bike at the campus bike shop. Then, pick up a self-guided tour map and bike or walk around the campus at your leisure, or take a one-hour student-led campus walking tour at 11am or 3:15pm. You can see a panoramic view of the Palo Alto area from the Hoover Tower observation platform, which is 285 feet above Stanford’s campus. Visitors can have a picnic lunch in the Oval, the lawn at the main entrance of the campus. After lunch, art enthusiasts will enjoy touring the galleries at the Cantor Arts Center, strolling through the Rodin Sculpture Garden, or just walking around campus to see the forty-two freestanding outdoor sculptures. See you on campus!
