Just be sure to see the birthplace of Silicon Valley : yes, from behind a fence, but I think it's important to keep the place 'safe' and respect the peaceful atmosphere of the neighborhood.

Part of a business tour which decided it was worth a visit. If you are in a bus or large vehicle it is tricky to get there and navigate the cars parked in the residential neighborhood. Unless you are really one to get inspired by...More

Interesting from a historical perspective, but there's not much to do here other than visit, read the plaque, maybe take a picture. There are no tours and you can't go inside. You'll see that it's in a residential neighborhood and people actually live in the...More
