Norman Rockwell by the beach

30 miles south of San Francisco, off of Highway 1 is the quaint town of Half Moon Bay. This area has a little downtown of a couple blocks of real New England type charm. Nice bookstores, coffee houses, restaurants and galleries. A very pleasant atmosphere. Half Moon Bay also has a wonderful and scenic beach as well. It is nice and small and private, for a quiet sand and sun retreat. I stilll say the nice walking downtown is the sell point for me.
