Half Moon Bay (Day Trip From San Francisco)

Posted by

Today I’m spending the day in Half Moon
Bay which is about 45 minutes away from San Francisco. It’s a super cute town and
it’s a great day trip from San Francisco. Main Street is a historic Street in the
town. This is a fun place to walk around and enjoy the many shops and restaurants.
Here you will find shops with wine and cheese, stationery, boutiques, an interactive outdoor crafts garden and even the largest Emporium for feed and
farm products in the county. Stop at moon side bakery and cafe for a delicious
treat. For lunch, we’re headed to a restaurant called Moss Beach distillery. Just outside of Half Moon Bay, is Moss
Beach where the Moss Beach distillery has had the best view in town since 1927. During Prohibition, it was a speakeasy and landing spot for illegal whiskey. Now it’s still an incredible place for lunch dinner, or Sunday brunch. This restaurant is supposedly haunted by the blue lady a woman from the 1930s. There is also a dog-friendly patio with
fire pits and blankets. This is a great spot to cozy up and watch wildlife such
as whales and seals. Here you can enjoy the bar’s food and drink menu. And now for the last stop of the day, we’re going to a beach called Martin’s Beach. This Beach is currently open, but has been subject to controversy. It is in front of a
private gated community and there has been a dispute about whether it is a
public or private beach. A wealthy homeowner put up signs saying it is a
private beach, and an ongoing battle ensued. The beach is far less popular now, making it a beautiful destination with little crowds. Thanks so much for watching,

  10. Thanks Jamie. This video reminds me of my middle school bestie who moved there many decades ago. He used to call me and said how boring Half Moon Bay is and stuff (I never bothered to find out the truth about his complaint). Your video (both the scenery and layout of streets/stores) shows the opposite of his descriptions!
