It feels weird to write a review for a university as an attraction. We all know that Stanford would rank 5 stars academically anyway, but it really is the most breathtaking campus I've ever seen. I fell in love with it when I was in college, enrolled elsewhere (cruel twist, as I wish I had discovered it sooner), but now that I live in the Bay Area I always make it a point to take my visitors here. Make sure you take photos with the esplanade, the statues, the church, and the fountains. Definitely stop by the bookstore too, as it's pretty massive for a university store.
