We went to Stanford University and saw the Hoover Tower. There is historical information one can read about there. There are also nice views of the campus. It is named after President Herbert Hoover.

While working at Stanford we often visited this beautiful building, having the chance to witness the beautiful view on the region. Also, the staff is extremely friendly and explains to you interesting facts about the building's history.

We were blessed with a clear day and were able to see San Francesco and Portland. Carillon of 48 bells donated by the Belgian people sit at the top. Small history museums at the bottom one includes a piece of the Berlin Wall.

Iconic structure that can be seen from virtually anywhere on campus. For $4 you can take an elevator to the top where incredible 360-degree views of Stanford, Palo Alto and the surrounding areas can be had. On a clear day you can see all the way to downtown San Francisco. Be sure to admire the massive carillon bells atop the tower. If you’re lucky, one of the elevator operators will tell you why all of Stanford’s rooftops are red.
