Palo Alto, CA - A Great Place to Visit

I have visited Palo Alto twice for business in recent years. I have found it to be a fun trip each time. It has many things to offer for entertainment and fun. One of my favorite places to go to is TheatreWorks. This is a live theatre with world class entertainment. It is very popular so you should look into getting tickets early, but is well worth the visit. The main thing you will notice about Palo Alto is restaurants. This is what Palo Alto seems to pride themselves on the most. The quality and amount of dining places will impress anyone. However, one downside is that at almost any restaurant you choose, there will most likely be a wait. I have even attempted to find a seat at 10 PM on a weeknight and still found there is a wait. For me this is a drawback but once you do get seated, the food will impress you greatly. Whether you have a student looking for a college or not, one fun thing to do is to visit the Stanford Campus. This is one of the most beautiful campuses in America and a simple walk through the campus will take your breath way.
