2 to 5 p.m. Hike trails
6 p.m. Eat dinner at Bumble
Located in Los Altos, Los Trancos Open Space Reserve is a perfect hiking spot with beautiful views to spend the first day of your long weekend. There are many trails you can explore, one of which is the 1.5-mile San Andreas Fault Trail, which also teaches you about earthquake geology. As this weekend is less than two weeks away from Thanksgiving, use this opportunity to spend some quality time with friends or family, take cute pictures or pick up some colorful fall leaves. After watching the sunset, drive to Bumble, an organic eatery in downtown Los Altos. It is a great way to relax after your afternoon hike and get something to eat before wrapping up the rest day of your long weekend. Make sure to pay attention to seasonal specials on the menu and try the Fall Harvest Salad.
