|I'm from the UK and will be visiting SF for a week in April. Is it worthwhile to heading down to Silicon Valley to check it out?|
I'm aware a lot of the area is simply large business parks, and companies won't let you just wander into their offices uninvited. These are places of work after all, not tourist attractions.
Having said that...
Is it worth trying to get a tour of the Googleplex? Or trying to get a tour of other headquarters (Facebook/Apple)? Or a tour of Stanford? Is there anything else worth seeing?
I will not have a car either, but suppose I could hire one for the day if it was necessary.
Other suggestions welcomed!
EDIT: If any Google/Apple/Facebook employees can snag me a tour I'd be greatly appreciative, email in profile.
