Eat - there are great restaurants in Palo Alto, mostly concentrated on University Avenue and California Street.

Shop - the Stanford Shopping Center is an excellent mall, while University Avenue also offers a number of great shopping options.

Walk - it's gorgeous year round.  Take some time to explore, whether it's strolling the downtown, touring Stanford's campus, or getting our into the hills around Palo Alto to hike or bike.

Visit the excellent Cantor Museum at Stanford University, which has a good collection of modern California artists as well as Rodin's The Thinker and Gates of Hell. You can also visit and tour a Frank Lloyd Wright house built for 2 professors on Stanford's campus. You have to call ahead to purchase tickets for the house tour.
