Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA

Less than 10 minutes from Hotel Parmani is one of the most famous outdoor performance venues in the Bay Area. One of the largest tent structures in the world, its design was actually inspired by the Grateful Dead's "steal your face" image.

It's the perfect place to relax in the grass and take in a show.
