Half-Moon-Bay is approximately 25 miles south of San Francisco in San Mateo County. The town of Half Moon Bay sits along the Pacific Coastline and is surrounded by forests and farmland. The near perfect weather makes this area rich in agriculture and roadside stands sell locally grown artichokes, beans, pumpkins and herbs. After a day spent at one of the area beaches or parks, sample fresh seafood at one of the town's many restaurants. Half Moon Bay is home to two beautiful golf courses, and hiking, biking and horseback riding are also popular outdoors activities. The charming downtown has numerous shops, art galleries, antique stores and eateries. There is a peaceful, restful quality to Half Moon Bay, yet this small town is mere minutes from one of the most sophisticated cities in the world! And each October, thousands come to Half Moon Bay for the annual Art & Pumpkin Festival. This 32 year old celebration includes music, pumpkin carving and pumpkin pie eating contests, arts & crafts, and every kind of food imaginable made from pumpkins! The festival is known worldwide for their "heaviest pumpkin in the world" contest! Half Moon Bay is a friendly, caring community that welcomes visitors to their beautiful spot of the world!
