The morning backup on Highway 237 is pretty monumental.  ;->
(Every time I pass it on my bicycle, I feel a bit smug. )
 
A lot of the landmarks are non-flashy, like David Packard's garage:

Not to mention Steve Jobs's old garage:
http://www.paulgraham.com/garage.html
 
Possibles:  Hangar One, the Blue Cube at Onizuka, Winchester Mystery
House, California's first state capital building (100 block of S.
Market, San Jose),  Paul Masson Mountain Winery in Saratoga, the Palo
Alto Stock Farm (now part of the Stanford campus) where Eadweard
Muybridge invented motion pictures, the Pioneer Electronics Research
Laboratory in Palo Alto where Lee de Forest invented the first vacuum
tube amplifier and oscillator, the Peralta and Roberto-Sunol Adobes in
San Jose, Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, Lick Observatory.

One man's opinion:  http://www.priss.org/80/what/lost.htm
 
Hangar One may or may not get 'reskinned' after the toxic siding panels
are removed.  See:  http://www.savehangarone.org/
