Pick up some picnic supplies and handcrafted art at the Palo Alto Farmer’s Market, then relax in the gardens at Menlo Park, which is also the headquarters for Facebook.

Families can spend hours at the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo, with its interactive science experiments and rare species, such as jungle bats and giant tortoises. A 20-minute drive south drops you at the Great America amusement park with free-fall rides, live music and a dedicated KidZville town. You can also view technological inventions at the Museum of American Heritage.

Ready for some fresh air? Hit the hiking paths at Stanford Dish trail, named for the radio telescope you’ll pass on the six-kilometre loop. To see the sparkling San Francisco Bay, hike the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Trail.
