Filoli House and Gardens is one of the prettiest places to visit on a fall day. Filoli was built for Mr. and Mrs. William Bourn II, prominent San Franciscans, whose chief source of wealth was the Empire Mine in Grass Valley. Take a self-guided tour of the bottom floor of the estate to appreciate the glamour, history and impressive interior design. Stroll through the stunning gardens, rich with fall colors and decorated for the season. Hopefully, you’ll catch a glimpse of Percy the Peacock in all his glory! Lunch is on your own in the Quail’s Nest Café. Register by September 25; call for availability after that date.
