Destination guide

Menlo Park is innovating the Bay Area

Menlo Park is a wedge of Silicon Valley that's hurtled headlong into the 21st century with its hi-tech industries, innovative research institutions, and booming "WWW." headquarters. It's a buzzing and happening corner of the San Francisco Bay Area in which to spend a week or so, offering chic Menlo Park vacation rentals with boho, West Coast design, and access to groundbreaking physics labs and cutting-edge university departments from the doorstep. Menlo Park is also nicely placed for enjoying the natural delights of the Peninsula – the redwoods of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space forever beckon to the west.

Things to do

Cerebral attractions in Menlo Park

The delights of Menlo Park itself might not need the walking boots and the trekking gear, but they are sure to get the brain working. You can delve into the atomic chambers of the Nobel-prize-garnering SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, where guided tours reveal gamma-ray telescopes and pulsing electron beams. You can explore the mind-boggling fusion of tech and art that's on display at the PACE Gallery. You can go for public lectures in Stanford University, or shop for local artisan crafts in the beautiful Allied Arts Guild.


Get the brainwaves flowing in Menlo Park

Whether you're on a guided tour of futuristic physics labs, unraveling the secrets of cosmic rays with lecturers at world-class Stanford University, or learning the ins and outs of San Fran's homegrown arts scene, you can rest assured that the pursuits of Menlo Park will get you thinking. Others might prefer something a tad less demanding on the mind. For that, you can search for Menlo Park vacation rentals in the woods, where the trails and overlooks of the Wunderlich County Park offer walking and picnicking above the city streets.


Put a spring in your step in Menlo Park

Like the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area, Menlo Park enjoys warm weather from around May to September each year. That said, because most visitors flock in during the main school break periods between June and August, it might be better to hit the lecture halls and science museums in the pre-season of spring. April and May are great choices, offering lower rates on Menlo Park vacation rentals, and temperatures in the high 60s – perfect for touring San Fran's hills and the al fresco art galleries here.

Natural features

Menlo Park is crammed into the San Fran Bay

Menlo Park is just one slither of the suburban fabric of the San Francisco Bay Area. It sits on the Peninsula side of the city, and brushes up against the rising peaks of the mountains that protect the streets from the spray of the Pacific Ocean. You can venture up there to get a taste of North Cali's wilder side. Check out Pulgas Ridge and the Russian Ridge, where blooming meadows of wildflowers dominate in the spring, and old oak trees crowd the trails. Or, go to the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, a home to redwoods and creaking forests.
