If you are at Stanford and need to shop, you don't have to go all the way to San Francisco. You can find all major brands at the Stanford Shopping Center. Great place to go with your friends and do a little shopping.

I have visited Palo Alto six times, just got back Oct 14, 2011.. Each trip to Palo Alto starts with a visit to the mall. Always gain a ton of weight in purchases. Love the open areas. The gardens are always gorgeous. Can't wait for next trip. Mall is well laid out and everyone is very helpful.

Almost all my favorite stores are here; be sure... More

The Bay Area seems to have lots of outdoor shopping malls. This one has lots of upscale stores and is right off of El Camino Real on Palo Alto. It's a good place to go when the weather is nice....
