This place has like a small village inside!! Love the variety of concessions. Typically I have to see something in a stadium to have this many choices to wet my whistle. Seats are good, sound is awesome, the grass areas are not too far away.

don't think there's a bad seat in the place. Staff friendly & can handle drunk teens well. Love they have lots of room to handle the crowd.

This venue is one of my more favorite outdoor amphitheaters. It's clean, and the layout is conducive for viewing and hearing from all areas. I can't imagine there are any bad seats, even from the lawn. The culture in Mountain View is different than DC,...More

Hi, You can rent chairs for $5 each, or you can bring your own, however they have to be the low beach style folding chairs, that sit a few inches above the ground.

There are no hotels that close to Shoreline Amphitheatre but close enough to take a cab so far and then walk in.
