If you are visiting San Francisco and feel like a change of scene for a few days, take your cue from the locals who weekend in nearby Half Moon Bay and Pescadero.
Half Moon Bay
It’s a short but spectacular 46-minute drive from San Francisco to Half Moon Bay – through the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Half Moon Bay is everything that you could want from a weekend mini-break – great restaurants, interesting shops, art galleries, wineries, redwood forests, and the stunning Pacific Ocean shoreline.
If you’re into surfing (or just into surfers), then this is where you’ll find the Mavericks’ surf break location – a beacon for boys who like to ride waves.
