PIER 39′s Tree Lighting Celebration

As the holidays approaching, there are many festive events coming up. One of the events that we look forward to is the annual PIER 39 Tree Lighting Celebration on Saturday, November 23 and Sunday, November 24 from Noon – 6:30pm.

As we welcome the holiday season with two days of holly-jolly magic and merriment for the whole family, we will get to experience the music and the fun! There is a 60-foot tree, adorned with beautiful ornaments will be illuminated.  It’s truly a magical time of the year. We plan to dress warm (coat, scarf, gloves) as the temperature can be quit cool as this time of the year, especially at night.

Free museum admission

As cooler weather approaches here in the San Francisco Bay area, it’s a great time visit various museums while sipping a hot cup of hot chocolate. What’s even better is that many museums offer free admission on certain days. It’s a great way to explore what the area has to offer!

Some of our favorites:

  • California Academy of Sciences, love the albino alligator!

  • de Young Museum, from September 21, 2013 to February 17, 2014, they are featuring “The Art of Bulgari: La Dolce Vita & Beyond, 1950–1990”. There are some incredible jewelry collection.
