Half Moon Bay and San Mateo beaches are only 16 miles away, but beach traffic gets really really heavy so plan on at least an hour on summer weekends after 9 am.
Originally from the D.C. area, I have firmly adopted the San Francisco Bay Area as home. I adore traveling and discovering new restaurants! If you need restaurant recommendations, I will happily pull a list of my favorites for you.
When not traveling or eating out, I enjoy outdoor rock climbing, dressage, and hiking.
We fell in love with San Mateo Park- the bucolic streets with their huge medians and old trees made us feel like we had brought a little bit of the east coast to California. We also love being able to walk down to the farmer's market in the summer, and to Mollie Stone's for organic groceries!
