Bucket List: Half Moon Bay … check
Half Moon Bay!
Doesn’t that name just trigger your imagination? It certainly had that effect on me for years, and I couldn’t wait to walk down Half Moon Bay when I got to this part of Northern California. It didn’t disappoint.
Half Moon Bay Main Street
Here’s some photos of the shops, buildings and businesses that definitely give you a sense of the town. Main Street is just one long street with buildings on either side, and there’s not one fast-food or high street brand name along it.
The jail and this church are actually one street over from Main Street … I spied them from one of the cross-street a took a little detour…
And it doesn’t look like much… but the Cafe Society serves delicious coffee… and a fabulous alternative to Starbuck or Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf
I visited town a couple of times, and there’s a fabulously helpful tourist information centre on main street, they have all sorts of brochures and leaflets available, and are really knowledgeable and passionate about the area … and I can see why. There really seems to be a tremendous sense of community here .. and I would love to visit this area of California again.
