Depending upon whom you talk to, Half Moon Bay might be one of the most beautiful cities in the Bay Area. It’s small, with just over 11,000 residents, although the unincorporated Princeton-by-the-Sea is often counted in there, bringing the total to just over 20,000 people.
The town is located right on the coast and within a short commute to Silicon Valley and a 25-mile commute to San Francisco. It’s about 45 miles north of Santa Cruz.
Few businesses are headquartered in Half Moon Bay; people typically live there for the beautiful ocean surroundings and the charming, quaint town. It has a large artist community, several galleries and classes and it hosts an annual Art and Pumpkin Festival every October.
The town also has 80 miles of hiking trails, 46 miles of coastline, miles of redwoods and lots of places to surf. It’s truly the California experience.
