"The frame of the campus"

Campus drive, so aptly named, is truly the gateway to Stanford University. Circumnavigating the entire campus, it is a welcome change from Palo Alto's consistent congestion - but be prepared to pay hourly for parking on weekdays. That being said, the road can also be used as a through street to give a driving tour if you don't want to stick around. But where's the fun in that?

Fortunately, Campus Drive is also home to the visitors' center, your ticket to make the most of your trip here. Stanford really is one of the best college campuses to visit - steeped in history, but with a modern feel, it has everything from museums to sculpture gardens to sports fields to unique architecture - all with the Stanford name attached.

True to college campus form, everything to do here is free or cheap. This is a great resource for locals and tourists alike, and Campus Drive will get you here no problem.
Pros
  • Easy to drive on
  • Access to everything on campus
  • Green and scenic
Cons
  • More through street than pedestrian
  • Paid parking on weekdays
  • Could be a bit uptight for some

"College Town with a feel for life."

Palo Alto is known outside of California as a a computer city that makes much of what people use in PC's today. But its also a great place to find a good bar and fun people much of that is from the college town of UCLA and Campus Dr is a great place to see all that is great about college life you can just by driving down the street find more than one sports field filled with people playing having fun and just enjoying the day. The food is good, you fin the normal college find pizza places and fast food joints. The people are great and nice and the streets are clean and you well not have a hard time finding a police officer if you need it. So if you like people and the sun or just a bike ride give it a try.
