Head over the foothills to the small town and beach of Pescadero. Pescadero State Beach (read parking lot, toilets, and trash cans) is a wide, clean expanse of sand that's popular with locals--when I lived in Palo Alto, I'd go there at least a couple times a month. And don't miss the artichoke bread from Arcangeli Grocery Store--perfect for a picnic on the beach (and to take home too!).

It's just a small podunk town, and a historical stagecoach stop, inland from Hwy 1 south of San Francisco and Half Moon Bay. But you'll find enough here to amuse yourself for the day. Go tidepooling at the rocky, windy beaches and visit Point Pigeon Lightstation. Then head downtown for artichoke-cheese bread from Norm's before petting the baby goats and sampling fresh goat cheese from Happy Acres dairy farm. Then go picnic underneath shady coast redwood trees in little-visited Butano State Park.

A cute funky town that truly has the ambience of the Old West. Stop in for lunch at one of the cafes, or at Duarte's for olallieberry pie. There's a gas station, some cafes, gift shops, and a thrift store. Phipp's Ranch with a petting zoo and self pick berries is up the road, and Dee Harley's Goat Farm is nearby.

Great little town off of HWY 1 with some great beaches and romantic hideaways. The lighthouse is it's most predominant landmark, but there are a few hidden locales that make Pescadero unique and special.
