It’s no secret that we really love Half Moon Bay, California. We head that way quite often, and enjoy the small town, beachy feel it provides. Here are a few of our favorite things to eat, see, and do there.

If you love it so much you’d like to stay, I highly recommend the Ritz-Carlton. If you’re feeling festive you could head over to Arata’s Pumpkin Farm to enjoy the hay maze and other fall activities, or if you can’t make it out right now you could always try to catch the Annual Pumpkin Festival next year.
