Fall Getaways in San Francisco Bay Area
It’s hard to resist the spell of autumn in the Bay Area: the weather’s just about perfect, the bounty of the harvest is at its peak, and there’s even a bit of Northern California-style fall color going on in the coastal hills. Come join us here at Pullman San Francisco Bay for a blissful fall getaway in one of the most exciting metro areas in the country!
There’s no way to comprehensively overview all of the seasonal goings-on here in the Bay Area in one blog post, but we’ll put the spotlight on some quintessential fall activities and events to whet your appetite for your Pullman-based vacation…
Pumpkin Patches, Pumpkin Festivals, Corn Mazes, & More
Indulge in some signature fall day-tripping out of Pullman San Francisco Bay by swinging by a few of our region’s pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and u-pick apple orchards. And speaking of pumpkins, you really ought to put the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival on your to-do list: This awesome celebration of the Halloween gourd, presenting its 48th annual edition October 13th and 14th in downtown Half Moon Bay (aka the “World Pumpkin Capital”), features supersized pumpkins, hundreds of arts-and-crafts vendors, live music, and a whole lot more.
Among the great free concert events in the U.S., the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival always puts on a heck of a show in Golden Gate Park. This year’s festival, which takes place October 5th through October 7th, serves up a mouthwatering lineup that includes Mavis Staples, Alison Krauss, Steve Earle (and Justin Townes Earle, too), Emmylou Harris, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Ani DiFranco, and a taping of Live From Here hosted by Chris Thile, to name a few highlights.
Catch a Football Game
Fall also, of course, means football season in America, and as a guest of ours at Pullman San Francisco Bay you’ve got not one but two options for NFL gridiron action: Watch the 49ers at work at Levi’s Stadium, or catch a Raiders home game at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
See the Blue Angels Soar at Fleet Week
Marvel at the aerobatic precision of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels as well as other elite aircraft at the San Francisco Fleet Week Air Show over the San Fran waterfront on Sunday, October 7th.
