Hidden Gems of Mountain View

 

Mountain View has become synonymous with Silicon Valley. It's not hard to see why - Google has drawn thousands of employees to their headquarters there. But look beyond the tech companies and you'll find a community rich with culture. If you're new to town and looking for a few local favorites, try these recommendations from Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management:

 

Computer History Museum

 

Whether you're an engineer by trade or are simply curious about the town's history, Mountain View's Computer History Museum is a must-visit. Boasting the largest computer collection in the world, the museum incorporates pieces from every era of the industry's history. It's a great place to brush up on the context of Mountain View and Silicon Valley's influence at large.

 

Shoreline Aquatic Center

 

Catch some air at Shoreline Aquatic Center, Mountain View's windsurfing hot spot. Take classes in the sport or simply watch other thrillseekers in action. Kayaking, sailing, hiking, and biking - the center truly has something for everyone! It's no wonder so many Moutain View locals can be found here on the weekends.

 

SETI

 

The truth is out there, and it's even closer than you might imagine. SETI, or the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute, is based right here in Mountain View. This world-renowned research group hosts monthly talks about their findings, so if you're looking for a quirky way to spend an evening, check out their upcoming events now!
