"The birthplace of Silicon Valley: HP Garage" Palo Alto Off The Beaten Path Tip by mingomatic

Palo Alto Off The Beaten Path: 6 reviews and 4 photos


This place is where it all began. It's the garage where Hewlett and Packard first started their company very young, and that's how a culture of tech entrepreneurship really began. It's on a regular house on a nondescript street. You won't be able to go past the gate but you can take pics at the street and on the driveway. It's pretty cool if you're a geek like me.

367 Addison Avenue in Palo Alto, California.
