Palo Alto is about half an hour's drive south of San Francisco. As you can see from this photo, it's a mixture of old, established neighborhoods and new business districts. It is probably best known as the site of Stanford University.
This community garden is tucked away in a corner of a park in Palo Alto. Gardeners pay a fee to cultivate a plot, and I'm told that there is a waiting list for this particular garden.
The Sheraton Palo Alto (see hotel tip) has some lovely koi in a pond.
