The North Bayshore area is a neighborhood of many hats. A high-tech mecca, North Bayshore is home to world-renowned companies including Google, Intuit, and LinkedIn. It is also a place of recreation, entertainment, and wildlife conservation. It has no residential developments or schools, although some have been proposed.
Workday mornings, dozens of Wi-Fi-equipped, double-decker buses transport out-of-town workers to and from North Bayshore. At lunchtime, North Bayshore buzzes with workers riding colorful Google bicycles in search of food from the dozens of restaurants that make up Food City. These advantageous companies juxtapose wetlands, creeks, and parks, as well as social and entertainment venues.
North Bayshore also offers facilities for enjoying outdoor recreation of all sorts, such as golfing, soccer, volleyball, biking, running, hiking, canoeing, and windsurfing. Paved trails for some of these activities run along Stevens Creek Trail, which is used by many Googlers to bike to work. Dining, corporate, and social events are held at Rengstorff House, Lakeside Café, Michael’s Restaurant, Shoreline Aquatics Center and Cafe, and Shoreline Golf Links. Residents and visitors can absorb some of the history of Silicon Valley with a visit to the Computer History Museum. Another iconic structure in North Bayshore is the cone-shaped tent stage cover of the Shoreline Amphitheater, which has been a frequented venue of world-famous artists.
