On my recent trip to the Silicon Valley, I was fortunate enough to be able to make a side trip to see the Apple headquarters. Finally getting to visit the well known “1 Infinite Loop” was as rewarding as might be expected, and at least I can now say I’ve been there.
See this location on a map, and use Street View for a look around.
Unfortunately, getting a photo is about the most you can do. Despite the word “Visitors” on the sign, this only applies to people with an invite, and the only way to get past the entrance is if you have a host and are able to print a badge at one of the self serve stations.
Lastly, a tribute to Apple from the good old days on a related note:
If you want to visit the Apple Headquarters, here are a few quick tips:
- Plan for about 15 minutes to look around and get a photo. If you feel like walking the loop, you could probably do it in about 15 minutes. Sorry, wish there was more!
- The parking lot is huge, and I saw no visible notices about where or where not to park. It seemed safe enough to find a parking spot for a quick visit.
- I read about there being a store, but I didn’t see it. As it turns out, the store is under renovations. Watch for it again in the future.
