For locals and visitors, it's time to start putting November happenings in this area on our calendars.
Fall foliage season continues with the color moving south, so daytrips to Rhode Island and Connecticut may still be photoworthy. The photo above was taken on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall in mid November, last year. Boston has beautiful foliage into November, most years.
- Frog Pond Skating is open in mid-November, weather permitting.
- A few seasonal farmers' markets continue until Thanksgiving and other indoor markets begin to open. Here's a link to days they open and closing dates for the summer seasonal markets.
- December 3rd Holiday Pops opens, but you should buy your tickets now if you want great seats or need a block for a group of family or friends.
- For those visiting from outside the U.S., November 11th is Veterans Day, a holiday. But since it is not a three day weekend holiday, there are fewer impacts on transportation and most stores, restaurants, and tourist attractions are open.
- Thanksgiving, November 27th is the other big holiday. For this one, almost everything is closed and the transit system is on a holiday schedule. For most lines, this means a Sunday Schedule. But, for some, it may mean no service.
- There is a large (19,000 visitor) convention the 16th to 19th. Other big convention dates are November 4th to 10th, 21st to 23rd, and 30th to December 3rd. Conventions have an impact on hotel prices and the availability of restaurant reservations.

Over on Trip Advisor's Boston Forum, the destination experts are adding to the initial post I began on this topic. The group has been keeping a running list of fun things to do, each month.
