Is it possible to visit two universities in one day: Stanford and Berkeley?

My dad is a speed devil, he thinks we can enjoy and look into both universities in one day, i'd like to visit the Botanical Gardens and **** though.

Berkeley tour- 10:00 A.M.

Stanford tour- 3:15 P.M.

can we pull it off and still enjoy the schools?

Is it possible to visit two universities in one day: Stanford and Berkeley?
Whew. Yes, you could look at them in that amount of time. Just a look.

It'll take over an hour to get to Stanford from Berkeley. Factor in traffic, parking and walk times.

I'd say that's a no on botanical gardens.
Reply:Without knowing how long your planned tours will last, it is difficult to give specific advice. University gardens and museums typically close at around 5 PM. So, you might not get to see much of Stanford if you're arriving late in the afternoon.

If you're driving, you'll have to leave Berkeley at 2 PM at the latest (and pray for good traffic on the 101).

Allow some extra time to find parking.


Public transportation will take even longer. You want to leave Berkeley no later than 1:15 PM. And by "leave," I mean you should be on the train at that time.

It'll take 57 minutes on BART to get from Berkeley to Millbrae. And then you'll transfer to Caltrain for an additional 30 minutes to Palo Alto (Stanford). Factoring in the time spent on transfers, it should take a little under two hours.
Reply:Tell the speed demon to take Hwy 280 to Stanford. 101 is a parking lot.
Reply:Probably, you could spend days at each though just to let you know, and they're only about 30 miles apart. (Personally, I prefer the Tree at Stanford.)
Reply:there will be traffic crossing the bridge so you, you probably won't make it.

Locations for a surprise picnic in Atlanta?

I am looking for a fun place to have a picnic dinner in Atlanta in February. I think it will be a bit cold to be outside so I'd like to find some place warmer! I've thought of my living room floor or the botanical gardens (closed at night though) but am hoping to get more ideas! Are they any other places you can think of? Please help! Thanks!

I would say stone mountian is a good place but it is outside. ZOO ATL might be another good place
Reply:you could always go to piedmont park. check the weather before you go! :) have fun!
Reply:centennial olympic park... theres a covered picnic table area..and if it gets too chilly you can just walk inside CNN center, theres a nice food court area with cute little Atlanta souvenir shops. Or buy tickets to the coca cola factory or aquarium and roam around in there, very nice places.
Reply:How about one of the many golf course club houses that you might rent. Most of the private associations would be interested in renting the space especially in February.
Reply:callaway gardens might have something...but most of their stuff is outside i think

New York Botanical Gardens...???

How long does a visit to the new york botantical gardens in the Bronx usually take, like how many hours?

Also, is it something really nice and worthwhile to spend the day doing?

Depending on when you go, the Botanical Gardens is a good place to spend a few hours. And right next to it is the Bronx Zoo, so you can visit that also.
Reply:The good botanical gardens are in Brooklyn. Prospect Park. Its definately worth spending the day.
Reply:It will take all day
Reply:No, I was disappointed when I visited it.
