One Infinite Loop

Everyone knows that Silicon Valley is the mecca of tech companies. To name a few – Apple, Google, Facebook, Intel, HP, LinkedIn, Netflix, and the list just keeps going. For a non-techie like myself, I only hear stories of what the place is like because it’s so exclusive to those whose lives don’t revolve around the newest software or computer-related trends. And it’s this elusiveness that draws me in and makes me want to visit this special world of nerdiness.

On our way back from a Christmas weekend in San Francisco, Joseph and I stayed one night in Silicon Valley, hoping to explore parts of the Valley before heading back home. Unfortunately what absolutely slipped my mind was that many places were still closed due to the holidays and the fact that it was the weekend. Shucks.

However, one place was open, and it was the Apple store located on Infinite Loop street at the Apple Campus itself.

Huzzah!

Recently, this store received a major renovation, which is why all the information you find online about its opening days and hours are all wonky and not in-sync. If you want to know their official hours, go on their website versus something like Yelp.

The store is small, much smaller than any of their other stores I’ve visited – a bit of a surprise considering this should be considered their headquarter store. There are only a handful of products of each model for people to try and test out.

There is also shockingly no Genius Bar here as well. I don’t know where they’ll send you to if you have problems with your Apple device, but this place will not likely help you.

And yet, the best thing about this store isn’t the electronic products or the tech-support. It’s the limited edition, exclusive, you-can-only-find-them-here stuff that’s sold in the forms of t-shirts, stationery, and other little goodies. When we visited, we saw fun t-shirts with emojis on them, some cool minimalist notebooks with the Apple logo, and these really awesome rose-gold ballpoint pens that I ended up getting as my souvenir of choice!

Overall, it’s worth stopping for a few minutes inside this branch of Apple store, if nothing more than just to snap a picture and say you’ve been to One Infinite Loop!

    This place looks so cool! I love going into Apple stores but this one is actually beautiful! It’s so weird that it’s small and considered their headquaters! But that pen looks amazing!

    I know it would be a totally tourist thing to do which I usually avoid but I would buy those Apple mug because I love the colour and the simple design with just the logo.

      Yeah, it would be a tourist thing, haha, and I’m not even an Apple fangirl! And yet, they just pull me in.

    I would be all over those rose gold pens! The store is so beautiful and pictures so well. It’s so pleasing to both my OCD and my Interior Design brain!
