Bay Area Things to Do - Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz Comes to Berkeley November 9th

Looking for a list of fun events in the San Francisco Bay Area in November? Look no further… Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty has put together some of the highlights. November is a beautiful time here in the bay area, with warm days and cool evenings. One of my favorite things to do is go up to Napa County to see the leaves changing on the vines and trees. It is spectacular this time of year, and the big crowds of the summer are gone.

November is also a beautiful time to hike in Marin County before the rains begin in December. Please click here to see some of my favorite Marin County hikes.

In addition to the events below, I would add the “Lighting of the Historic Sonoma Plaza” which takes place at 5 pm on November 17th and features live music as well as complimentary hot cider, cookies and hot chocolate. Please click here for more information.
