Today, we're opening the Google Visitor Experience in Mountain View, California. From interactive art installations to offerings from local businesses to a California-fresh eatery, the new public destination has plenty of things for everyone to explore and enjoy.

Ready to plan your visit? Here are our top five favorite things you can do:

1. Learn something or meet someone new at an event

The Huddle is designed as a platform for community connections, offering free events and workshops for visitors to enjoy. We’ll also offer seasonal programs at the Plaza. Check out what’s coming up, including the Community Day on October 21 that features family-friendly activities, local food trucks, a makers market and live music performances!

2. Go on an artwork scavenger hunt

We recognize artists as essential innovators who inspire creativity in the communities where we live and work. You can enjoy and explore six interactive and dynamic art pieces facilitated by Burning Man Project, as well as murals and artwork from local artists who are a part of Google’s Artist in Residence program.

3. Get a taste of Google at the Cafe @ Mountain View

We’re introducing our first-ever public dining experience to the broader community at the Cafe @ Mountain View. Savor meals for purchase with seasonal, locally harvested ingredients that are crafted with sustainability and biodiversity in mind.

4. Discover and support local businesses at the Pop-Up Shop

Small businesses are at the center of any community, and creating economic opportunities for entrepreneurs to grow is important to us. The Pop-Up Shop is a retail space for local makers to showcase their goods.

The Pop-Up Shop is designed to support small businesses, and we’re working with MOMENT from San Jose Made to curate a rotating selection of local vendors.

5. Experience how our hardware products and services work together at the Google Store

Get a feel for the latest Google hardware products — like the new Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel Watch 2, which are available now — or learn how to improve your photos with Magic Eraser. Visitors can browse and buy Pixel phones, watches and tablets, Fitbit wearables, Nest cameras and more. Plus, take a look at limited branded merchandise. Experts are also on hand to help you get the most out of our products, provide Pixel phone repairs and facilitate workshops.
