Description

Pacifica, CA hosts parks and beaches with coastal, mountainous views and noteworthy sunsets. Only 20 minutes outside of San Francisco, the city cherishes its smaller town feel so close to the city.

Visitors love Rockaway Beach, the Pacifica Pier, Pedro Point, and Skyline Blvd. It’s also home to Frontierland Park, San Pedro County Park, and Mori Point. Linda Mar State Beach is a favorite destination with adventure-seekers interested in surfing, hiking, and biking.

Each year, Pacifica hosts the Pacific Coast Fog Festival during the last Saturday and Sunday of September. The festival offers a hometown parade, plenty of activities for children, and a variety of local artists, vendors, and performers.

You can explore the town using the free Gold Line Shuttle and stop by the Sanchez Art Center, Coastside Farmer’s Market, or Pacifica Skate Park. Be sure to see Portola’s Statue and capture the hills, mountains, and ocean on film.

Most scenic town on the coast!

The best view is coming down Rt 1 south, just after crossing into Pacifica. It is stunning. Then you can stop by the Green Enchilada for their mole enchiladas. I also recommend the view from Sharp Park Blvd, where there is a scenic vista for parking.

Pacifica sits nestled in beauty on the coast. Only 20 minutes from San Francisco and close to Silicon Valley, a perfect get away.
