Living in Mountain View
More densely urban than other Silicon Valley regions, Mountain View offers a vibrant city nightlife. It is a city with a younger-than-average population, many of whom naturally work in the tech industry.
It also boasts many stylish restaurants, bars, and boutiques, particularly around Castro Street and El Camino Real.
One of the most exciting cities in Silicon Valley, Mountain View is famous for one massive brand – Google – whose global HQ, the Googleplex, is situated here. Google's property in the Shoreline Technology Park, which covers 51 acres, cost the search engine giant $1 billion to build. It includes a dozen Google-owned buildings and the geometrically landscaped Charleston Park. If you work for the search engine colossus, you'll find many facilities for employees on-site, including the Googleplex employee dog park.
As well as Google, you’ll find Microsoft and various robotics firms just north of the Bayshore Freeway, which splits the city into its primarily commercial northern sector and its largely residential area to the south.
Those seeking respite from technology can enjoy the spring blossoms in Cuesta Park, explore the Bay Trail, or take Mora Drive to the Rancho San Antonio Preserve. There are several places to pick up locally sourced, organic food, including the Mountain View Farmers’ Market, held each Sunday. Produce on sale includes fruit and vegetables, baked goods, and flowers.
Cultural and educational pursuits are numerous in Mountain View. The Shoreline Amphitheater plays host to gigs from legendary artists. TheatreWorks Silicon Valley, based at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, produces a program of musicals, dramas, and comedies all year round and is particularly committed to new work. The NASA Ames Visitor Center draws those curious about the bleeding edge of space technology and innovation.
The Computer History Museum is a popular draw, tracing the birth of computation back over 2000 years.
Not everything in the city is new and modern. The Rengstorff House, built in 1867, is one of the earliest homes in Mountain View. Created by businessman and ferry owner Henry Rengstorff in Italianate Victorian style, it stands on lush grounds by Shoreline Lake.
