Hoover Tower Observation
550 Serra Mall
Towering AboveOn a clear day, there is no better way to check out the sights of the entire Peninsula than on top of Hoover Tower. At 283 feet tall, it quite literally towers above every other building in Palo Alto! The observation platform at the very top offers tours in which guides point out all of Stanford’s historic landmarks. While the campus is home to multiple must-visit spots, the experience ascending to the top and overlooking the region is invigorating unlike any other.
