Things to see in Sunnyvale

One of the most unique places to visit in Sunnyvale is Rabbit’s Foot Meadery. Unlike your typical breweries and wineries, these guys are the masters of honey-based alcohol, producing mead (honey wine), cyser (apple and honey cider), and braggot (honey ale). For a modest price you can sample all of them in a tasting session, and learn about how they are made from the friendly and informative staff. People often overlook the history of Silicon Valley because of its status as tech capital of the world, but there’s a rich and interesting past to discover.

To get a true sense of a town it’s always nice to visit a market. The weekly Sunnyvale Farmers’ Market is a lively place full of vendors selling fresh, local produce, and there’s also live music to enjoy.
