Scenic Coastal drive San Francisco to Half Moon Bay Pt 1

One great thing about living in San Francisco is that if you want a quick escape to the Ocean it is just a short day trip drive away.  You can start driving in the morning and get a lot of ocean view stops in one day.  Here is a first part of one day trip from San Francisco to Half Moon Bay with plenty of time to spare.

Take 280 South and get on Highway One, first stop at Pacifica

Ptown Cafe, built from a converted railroad car. Chat about what’s new and what is interesting and new along the coast.

Rockaway Beach in Pacifica

Nice little beach with a bit of hiking available and two restaurants Moonraker and Nick’s seafood.  Both places are worth a stop.  Check out my food blogs posts for those restaurants:

Driving further down the coast, our next stop is:

Pacifica Beach 

When I was there, plenty of surfers waiting for waves in the water.

Taco Bell with the million dollar view

Right next to the Pacifica Beach is the only Taco Bell I have been to with a million dollar view and a patio to hang out in.  The food is typical Taco Bell, the View, Amazing.
