Stanford football on the San Francisco Peninsula, gave me the perfect time to say thank you to my clients and some of the folks who help me keep my clients well cared for. Nearly 4 dozen of my guests enjoyed a delicious meal provided by ABC Bar-B-Que and a winning performance by our home team Cardinal. Relaxing at tables spread under eucalyptus trees in Arboretum Grove provided an ideal venue for our tailgate and an easy walk to Stanford Stadium to watch the Cardinal battle the visiting Oregon State Beavers.
The day was “California at its autumn best”. With snow falling in the Sierra Nevada mountains not all that far away, we sat outside in light sweaters under mostly sunny skies.
One of the many attractions of living on the San Francisco Peninsula is Stanford University and all its offerings to our local communities – sports to watch and teams to root for, like the currently 14th ranked football team, the Cantor Arts Center and Rodin Garden, the hiking trails of the “Dish,” the picturesque college campus and of course, the world renowned Stanford Hospital.
With such a wealth of activities to enjoy and places to visit, it’s no wonder the San Francisco Peninsula is the prime destination for so many home buyers in California. Moderate climate (average November temperatures are lows around 42 F and highs around 63 F with 2.44” of rain), less than an hour to the beaches, under 4 hours to snow sports, service by 2 international airports and within a 45 minute drive to the cultural center of San Francisco, one of the world’s 10 most loved cities (CNN Go) are some of the leading enticements of living “by the bay.” Oh, and the proximity of professional sports teams like the 49ers and 2-time World Series Champions San Francisco Giants is for some, the icing on the cake.
Whether you’re looking for an invitation to a tailgate bar-b-que before rooting on a local team or a new home that will place you in the heart of one of the best places to live in the Untied States, the San Francisco Peninsula, give me a call. I’m Wende By The Bay, and I’m always happy to help!
