Golden Gate Park is the closest thing that San Francisco has to match New York's Central Park. Occupying just over 1,000 acres of land in the middle of San Francisco, the park includes a zoo, a botanical garden, two world-class museums (the De Young and the California Academy of Sciences), miles of running paths, and more. The Park is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle-and-bustle of San Francisco.
Unarguably San Francisco's most iconic landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge can be a chaotic mess, but is still certainly worth visiting. If you're interested in seeing it, but not necessarily walking across it, we suggest laying a blanket out on nearby Crissy Field, or visiting Fort Point, both of which will offer stunning views.
Founded by the brother of famed physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, The Exploratorium was founded with the simple purpose of making science more fun and engaging. The museum, located right in the heart of the Embarcadero, has a ton of fun and interactive exhibits, and, for those arriving early, hosts Thursday evening parties that include adult-only programming and drinks!
'The Rock', as it is known, is one of the most well-known (former) prisons in the United States, playing host to famous criminals from Al Capone to Mickey Cohen to Whitey Bulger. Tickets are not easy to get, so order early! Additionally, expect a time commitment of roughly 4 hours from arrival at the ferry to return, though you may want to spend more time taking in all the parts of the island.
This brand new museum in the heart of downtown contains some amazing collections of modern art of all varieties, from photography exhibits of early California through to Andy Warhol.
San Francisco's Ferry Building, located at the end of Market Street, once the hub of ferry transit to and from the city, has been transformed into a marketplace, hosting vendors from Blue Bottle Coffee to Cowgirl Creamery, in addition to housing local restaurant favorites such as Hog Island Oysters and The Slanted Door.
For those of you who might just want to hang out and enjoy the sun that may or may not be shining, Fort Mason is the perfect place. Located in a quieter area of the City, Fort Mason is a popular weekend destination for folks looking to relax and enjoy the scenery.
Once the 'Ellis Island of the West', Angel Island plays host to the remnants of what was once a robust military presence. These days, it is part of the National Park system, and offers a fantastic history lesson, as well as some of the best hiking in San Francisco.
Sip some wine at this secluded Skyline Ridge winery with dramatic views of the bay. Thomas Fogarty offers a very good selection of wine, and is conveniently placed to some of the best hiking and natural surroundings on the Peninsula.
It's a free museum, about computers!
It may be a bit far away in San Jose, but the Tech Museum of Innovation is a fascinating museum detailing the history of Silicon Valley in a fun and interactive way.
The ceremony will be at the Stanford Memorial Church at 3pm. Please plan on arriving no later than 2:45pm. That way, we can ensure that everyone is seated and attended to prior to the 3pm ceremony start. Guests arriving after 3pm will not be allowed in the church per Stanford rules.
For self-driving guests, the closest parking areas to the church for self-driving guests are in the Palm Drive Oval or at Tressider Memorial Union. Permit parking spaces in these lots are not enforced on weekends. Here is a link to printable campus parking and transportation services maps: https://visit.stanford.edu/plan/parking.html
Shuttle service will be provided from both the Rosewood Sand Hill and the Westin Palo Alto. Specific details will follow.
For those who are unable to walk long distances, please contact the Diversity and Access Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (650) 725-0326 1-2 weeks prior to the ceremony.
The reception will be hosted at the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park following the ceremony. Cocktail and hors d'oeuvres service will begin at 4:15pm, and shuttle transportation will be provided to ferry guests from the ceremony to the reception venue.
A: There are two convenient airport options for those who are flying to the wedding:
(1) Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC): Located ~30 minutes from the Rosewood Sand Hill and the Palo Alto Westin, San Jose is generally less expensive and unaffected by the delays that tend to plague SFO. However, as it is a smaller airport, route schedules can be more restrictive into and out of SJC.
(2) San Francisco International Airport (SFO): Also located ~30 minutes from the Rosewood Sand Hill and the Palo Alto Westin, SFO is the bay area's travel hub. As such, it will have the widest variety of flights available. However, SFO is prone to frequent flight delays, which is important to take into consideration if you are thinking of arriving Saturday morning.
Given that it doesn't seem to experience the kind of flight delay issues that SFO does, San Jose may be the more convenient of the two options. However, we recommend checking route schedules and costs before purchasing tickets.
