Things you missed along the way, the wonderful world and sites of the Southern San Francisco Peninsula, San Bruno and Daly City are cute but go past staying off the 101 till you’ve gone through Cities like San Mateo, Foster City, Santa Clara, and the other little Cities, I say little due to a few like Foster City aren’t anything more then 15-25 blocks square wide, but Silicon Valley’s biggest Tech Corporations are all along 1 main Blvd. That goes through them. At the end of the peninsula another Blvd starts and follows along next to the 101, but this drive starting in S. Of Market goes past the New Golden State Warriors Arena, The Cow Palace, on past the San Bruno Natural Gas Explosion site, in San Mateo there are like 5 or 6 malls, for an area that’s 30 blocks by 25 blocks wide, next on to Foster City, not seeming intristing it has one of the most important places on the planet for any gamer, Sony’s N. America Headquarters and Sony’s Playstation World Headquarters are located in this seemingly tiny place but location is everything, known as Sony Foster City Campus, like Google down the street and Oracle’s famous Emerald City Campus a few miles away, Sony expanded this campus over the last 7 years, it houses many software and game company’s on its grounds along with offering classes that can become paid internships with Sony, the campus has free tour and exclusive things to see for the gamer in all of us, from Sony south you will pass tech, sortware, game, and electronic company’s all the way through to the split and then on to San Jose. But let continue from south of Sony, next site to see is Cisco systems, this Cysco site is the Original Cysco systems building and house the entire West Coast, Midwest & part of East Coasts internet Servers, this building is know as the Core to hard core internet surfers, they give small tours of the Server Rooms which are actually whole floors, 7 of them to be exact. From Cysco south you will pass more tech company’s until just past the road to Hayward Bridge, just a few block south, of that road, all the businesses and buildings seem to disappear and the view to the west reviles why, you’ll star in awh as you gaze your eyes on what architects, company’s and people in general call the most beautiful business complex in America and quit possibly in the world, it’s a collection of towers, 6 or 7 I think, beautiful Dark Green tinted windows, Gold played trimming every where you’ve found the Emerald City, Oracle’s humongous Complex, it’s absolutely astonding and definitely a place to see, just near the end of its property is the the road to the west, taking this road takes you to San Jose, the City us Cultual beauty due to all the races that live in the silicon valley, brought here by silicon valley companys, along this road you will pass Activision/Blizzard corp Headquarters, the former Sun Systems offices, now Cysco gaming servers building, EA games Headquarters, IBM Headquarters, Apple’s Headquarters, YouTube’s World Headquarters, Twitters Headquartes, MySpace’s Headquarters, Sega America’s Headquarters, Take2 Ent. Headquarters, Rockstar Games Headquarters, and many many more, just past the 101’s on ramp to head south us the Great Mall of The Bay, the Second largest Mall in America, after that head back towards the T intersection the brought you south, and go back south on it, it will wind you through the hills of Redwood City before spitting you out in Santa Cruz, now the rest of you trip was perfect except 1 more thing, when at the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk make sure you go to the Salt water taffy candy store, it’s almost 100yrs old and most recent history is they created Chocolate covered Bacon, yummy.

David Corbett says:

I done that trip about 20 years ago, well we turned off at LA for Palm Springs.was Started off ok from San Fran but we hit two problems, First was a landslide which forced us to miss Big Sur and highway 1 and drive inland which took us just south of San Simeon the second was June Gloom. In the month of June Southern California gets unseasonably chilly and gloomy
