Mountain View Has More than Just Fine Dining!
Mountain View, California is an old residential town located South of the Palo Alto Mountains, and often referred to as Silicon Valley. Despite the fact that it’s an old town, there is nothing old about Mountain View. It’s the center of global digitization and home to telecom giants like Google, and known for its mix of tech companies and museums. It’s also rich in mixed culture cafes and diverse downtown housing options. Downtown Mountain View is lively and anyone visiting the Bay Area should definitely make a stop at some of these landmarks. Whether you’re here for the Silicon Valley tech boom, or have lived here for decades, here are some fun things to do in Mountain View this Spring and Summer.
Enjoy A Day At The Google Cooperate Headquarters (aka the Googleplex)
The architecture, views, and things to do at the tech giant’s headquarters are fascinating. If you get the chance to take a tour–do it! Just outside the complex, you can take photos with various statutes/icons at the Google Android Lawn Sculptures Garden, 1981 Landings Dr. Mountain View, CA 94043.
See the Largest Collection of Computer Artifacts at The Computer History Museum
The Computer History Museum is another place you must visit in Silicon Valley. Located across from The Voya Restaurant, our Mountain View restaurant specializing in South American cuisine, the Computer History Museum is rich in information and multi-media exhibits. You’ll see the earliest computer models (that took up full rooms), leading into Apple, Google and Microsoft, and learn fascinating facts about their history and evolution over time.
Enjoy Your Day at The Moffett Field Historical Museum
This is a perfect destination for passing time while getting to learn some interesting facts about Moffett Field’s varied role in aviation since the 1930s. This was the home of NASA Ames, P3-Orion, and some pretty interesting research planes. The museum is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 10 am to 3 PM.
