Located along the serene California Coast and only 15 minutes away from San Francisco and Half Moon Bay, Pacifica is a coastal gem of a city that beckons thousands of travelers to its shores each year. Easily accessible from highway 1 but also rich in history and small-town culture, and boasting a strong sense of community, Pacifica feels as if it's a world away from civilization. It’s the perfect vacation destination for travelers hoping to experience the wonder of California without the hustle and bustle of overcrowded cities.
Visitors who enjoy a scenic hike can stomp the trails of Devil's Shade Trail which offers a breathtaking ocean view and the sounds of whales in the distance. Those with a passion for the great outdoors can also admire the ocean from the top of MorI Point, take photos of California's wildlife in San Pedro Park, play basketball on Frontierland Park's outdoor court, smell the flowers at Shelldance Orchid Gardens, or surf the waves at Pacifica State Beach. For travelers hoping to avoid the California heat, a visit to the Pacifica Arts Center makes for a creative way to spend an afternoon, while Sea Bowl offers family friendly bowling, and a tour of Sam's Castle provides nothing but wholesome, history-orientated entertainment.
The best time to visit Pacifica is in the late spring months when the weather is mild but still dry, and when pet friendly accommodations are cheaper.
Colombo's Delicatessen is Pacifica's most beloved Italian deli, selling fresh breads, homemade ravioli, and a variety of other Italian goods.
