Bay seniors remember when suburban edens first popped up on the pages of Sunset magazine. Those mid-century landscape designs were meant to turn new homes into California dreams. You can still see those ground-breaking Thomas Church gardens (updated a decade ago) at the headquarters of Sunset in Menlo Park. Stroll down these memory lanes Mondays through Fridays from 9 to 4. Free. The magazine’s offices nearby are by Cliff May, the father of the California Ranch Style. Feel free to applaud or curse.
