Around Autumn every year, I started to hear messages from people on the East Coast getting smug about their Fall foliage.
“In the Bay Area, you don’t even have seasons!” they say.
Well, let’s go ahead and prove them wrong. The San Francisco Bay Area does indeed have seasons, and we have autumn leaves that are just as beautiful as anything in New England.
Here are some photos of Bay Area fall foliage to prove it.
Yes, we have maples and other lovely trees with color-changing leaves, too! It’s not all giant redwoods out here.
Even Napa and Sonoma get in on the fall season. Who knew grape vines could look so festive?
Out in the East Bay, many parks explode with fall colors.
You can get up close and personal with many trees to see the beautiful leaves.
It’s the perfect season to take your furry friend for a stroll!
Or to get outside and enjoy the surprisingly nice Fall weather.
Eat your words, East Coast haters–the Bay Area does indeed have Fall, and it’s a beautiful time to live here!
