Right in the very heart of Silicon Valley is the city of Mountain View with very few reminders of its agricultural history. Its economy is now firmly based in high-tech industries and of course there is free Wi-Fi throughout the city. In 1990 the then city manager issued a long-term lease to Google, Inc. and other technology companies whereby a special tax district was created and the leases now generate around the $5 million per year into the city's coffers. You will find the headquarters or a large presence of such companies as Google, Symantec, Microsoft and Nokia located in Mountain View.
The town was named because of its views of the Santa Cruz Mountains and it has grown substantially from its humble beginnings as a stagecoach stop into a contemporary and friendly city of approximately 75,000 souls. Bordered by Palo Alto and San Francisco Bay in the north and Sunnyvale, Moffett Federal Airfield and Los Altos in the south, the town sits at the southern end of the San Francisco Peninsula.
Computer geeks will get a buzz going through the Computer History Museum that is the worlds largest, as well as being able to shuffle around the headquarters of Google with its huge Android statue at the entrance. Budding astronauts can dawdle through the NASA Ames Research Center and the shopaholic can run amok in Castro Street with its eclectic mix of shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes. If you want to vegetate, then head to the Shoreline Wildlife Refuge Area and Trail where you can either lay the weary bones on a grassy knoll or follow a hiking trail into oblivion.
