Anytime I find myself in the San Jose area, I always try to fit in a quick visit to Mecca for techies like me–the Googleplex and/or the Apple Campus. Today, I had the privilege of visiting both! The great thing about visiting either of these locations is that you can squeeze in a quick visit/ photo op in <30 minutes. As a non-employee, you cannot enter any of the buildings, except for the Apple store in Cupertino, but you can walk around and take everything in.
If you only have time to go to one location, check out Google Building 40 in Mountain View. You can ride a Google bike or take a walk on one of the amazing trails that wind through the beautiful sprawling campus.
