Fall is a wonderful time to have your San Francisco wedding, especially if you are thinking about an oceanfront venue. In fall, our famously foggy Bay Area weather turns sunny, with an average temperature in the low 70’s. Evenings are perfect for lingering outdoors with friends and family.
Beginning in January through the end of March, thousands of gray whales travel over 5,000 miles along the California coast from their summer feeding grounds in Alaska down to Baja California in Mexico. During the summer, they live in the Arctic, rich with bottom-dwelling organisms. As fall approaches, there is less sunlight and food, so they need to head south. While in Baja, they mate and give birth to their young. From March through May, gray whale mothers and their calves travel back north again to Alaska.

Companies understand that to help their work teams develop common goals and build creativity and collaboration, they need to spend focused time out of the office together on an offsite or retreat. As mentioned in The Why, When, and How of Successful Retreats from Just Works Consulting and Jeremy Phillips Consulting: “Retreats can build organizational muscle for strategic and creative thinking that can be carried back into daily work. A retreat can be an opportunity for taking stock, reflecting together, assessing and refining practice, and providing a turbo boost to specific aspects of work.”
Mention Half Moon Bay and fall in the same sentence, and most people immediately think of the Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival. This increasingly popular event draws participants from the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as the rest of the world, for a weekend of nonstop pumpkin festivities.
