Place for Live Entertainment

Playing video games and watching television are not the only ways to spend your summer. Just ask the kids performing at — or attending — the Palo Alto Children's Theatre, a place to sprawl out with blankets on the lawn, sit back and watch some good old-fashioned entertainment. The theater serves kids from age 3 through high school, introducing them to drama and producing the next stars of the stage. Shows planned for later this year include "The Ballad of Phineas McBoof" and "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe."

There are a lot of coffee shops in Palo Alto, but for a spot with freshly brewed java, tasty pastries and a killer wireless signal, Philz Coffee is your cozy home away from home. Settle into the comfy leather couches or scoot up to one of the large wooden tables with your laptop, tablet or smartphone to work — or binge-watch the latest Netflix obsession.
