The Launch

Welcome to Community Connections' new blog! We'll offer tips, ideas, and information sharing all aimed at helping you settle in to your new life in the Bay Area. Want to know just how big of a deal Halloween is here in California? Wondering when is the best time of year to visit Yosemite? Need a restaurant with the perfect view and great menu to take your out of town guests? Think March Madness is contagious? We'll talk about all this and more on our weekly posts.

Your input will help drive this blog - we want to answer your questions and cover topics you want to know more about. So please send us your requests and comments.

One quick tip to leave you with: this Saturday, September 25, is Smithsonian Museum Day. Get free entry for two to a number of Bay Area museums - including The Tech in San Jose, the Chabot Space Museum in Oakland and the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco. Go to to print your coupon. We'll be hitting the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park - I'll give my review next week.
