Explore Filoli Gardens - Things to Do in Palo Alto Near Creekside Inn

Looking for fun things to do near our Palo Alto hotel? Head to Filoli Gardens, a treasure in nearby Woodside, CA. Come for a leisurely afternoon in a tranquil, scenic setting where you can stroll the grounds hand-in-hand with your special someone or your little ones. The colorful, well-maintained gardens include an abundance of eye-catching roses and a full spectrum of flowers and lush greenery.

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., start your visit on this lovely hillside in the historic Irish-inspired estate built at the turn of the 20th century. You can take a guided tour with a docent who will share fascinating facts, or amble around on a self-guided tour through this majestic mansion.  Built shortly after the major earthquake in 1906, you’ll discover interesting details about the mining magnate Williams Bowers Bourn II, who chose this site for the sprawling 654-acre country estate. Just south of Crystal Springs Reservoir, the land was donated to the National Trust for Historic Preservation and has been open to the public since the mid-1970s. Feast your eyes on the Georgian-style home and Renaissance-style gardens.

Be sure to stop in at the Garden & Gift shop so you can bring home plants, honey, and garden-themed tchotchkes as souvenirs. When you’re ready to have lunch, grab a table in the café for good eats and friendly service. After you’ve walked around the massive gardens, come back to Creekside Inn to relax and recharge. With thoughtful amenities and well-appointed accommodations, you can continue your peaceful escape. By the time you’re ready for dinner, you won’t have to go very far for the best burger in town. Just stop in at our onsite Cibo Restaurant & Bar for fresh, flavorful California cuisine with a Mediterranean twist.
