Saratoga Village in all its fall colors

If you are wondering where to catch some fall color, not very far from the Bay Area, try visiting Saratoga Village late October or early November and see it all dressed up for the season.

Saratoga Village in Fall

Fall color, SaratogaWhen it’s ‘fall’ and you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, you see some yellow on a tree here and red on another, there. If you are looking for more than just splashes of fall-foliage here and there, you might want to look up streets that are flanked by trees that are known to change color in the season. Or you could visit one of the Japanese Gardens in the area. Or better still —  you could visit Saratoga Village just outside West San Jose.

Saratoga village is a quaint little town with adorable looking stores and lamp posts and lots of plants and flowers; a very pretty place. The village itself is something to see. The best way to see Saratoga is to walk down the village, widow shop, grab a coffee from one of the cafes and just admire the attractive storefronts that line its streets. And if it is in the fall, be sure to see more color added to the already colorful little town.

Or just drive through the village for a few minutes of pure Autumn-time-joy.

This post is a sneek peek at Saratoga Village, dressed in its fall attire, at the fag end of October. I hope these images will make you want to make a trip there to see it for yourself. Remember: Fall color doesn’t last forever. Remember also: Even if it is not fall, there’s plenty to love about Saratoga Village.

Most of the pictures here in this post are from Saratoga Avenue, in the city’s historic downtown district. Stay tuned for a post on fall color at Hakone Gardens in Saratoga.]

    I only am able to pass/drive by Saratoga on occasions, but I know that it’s charming at any season.

    Have a great fall.

    I sometimes get a feeling fall is more colorful than even spring. For in spring the colors are only on the flowers, in fall the colors are everywhere….

      Hmm… there are also the new leaves that come up in Spring.
      Just the other day, I was thinking about how these two seasons bring about so much colour around us. I was also trying to figure out which one of them appeals more to me. 😉

      😀 I know you what you mean, Yogi. It doesn’t quite fit the definition we were taught, does it? 😉
      That’s what it is called. 🙂
      Saratoga is quite a small town so the name seems to suit it and make it sound very charming. And charming it is. 🙂

      Thank you for visiting, Yogi. 🙂

    The orange and yellow colours of fall leaves are there throughout the spring and summer, but we cant see them…The green colour of chlorophyll, helps plants absorb sunlight, by hiding the other colours…In the fall, the green pigments break down and as leaves begin to lose their chlorophyll, other pigments become visible to the human eye 🙂 Saratoga is such a beautiful place to observe this phenomenon…

      True that. Very nicely put, Veidehi. Thank you.
      It’s a pity that fall foliage doesn’t last very long. Nature seems to have its own plans. 🙂

      Thank you, again. 🙂

      Fall colours are relatively less here in California. There are few places east of a mountain range near here, that gets a whole lot of colour. It is such a dream of mine to go see it. I hope we get to go do that next year.

      Thank you, Ms. Jose. 🙂

    Fall colours look so beautiful! I remember having the time of my life at Vermont during the 2015 fall. Beautiful photographs 🙂

      Oh, they do.
      You were in Vermont in the fall? Awesome! The best time to be there, I’m sure.

      Thank you, Puru. 🙂
