Efforts are currently underway to provide a delightful, fun-filled day to view Menlo Park in a very special way. It is tentatively being entitled the "Seven Wonders of Menlo Park, and more...."
It's envisioned to be a Bus Tour of unique and special places that are only found in Menlo Park. These might be locations one has heard about, but never seen, or perhaps never heard about. Even though Menlo Park may not be considered a major Tourist Destination, it never-the-less has a large list of places that might be considered 1) treasures, 2) gems and 3) unique enough to qualify as one of the Seven Wonders of Menlo Park, and more....
Some of these locations may be one or more of the following: 1) St. Patrick's Seminary, 2) Allied Arts, 3) Sunset Magazine, 4) Nativity Church, 5) Civic Center, 6) Sharon Heights and 7) U.S. Geological Survey. A much longer list could be developed with a bit of brainstorming.
If any of the above sounds of interest, let us know your thoughts, as to the following:
1) Would you and/or your family find a three or four hour BUS TRIP of interest, perhaps in the Spring 2008 when the weather is warmer;
2) Are there any other locations around town that you are aware of that might be added to the list above, as we all may have our favorite or special places that we may wish to share with others?
Many places in town may be as special as the citizens of Menlo Park are special. Let's take the position of being proud of our community and showcase its various jewels. This day has the potential of being unique; your thoughts are encouraged and welcome during the planning phase of this event.
