We’ve hit the mid-way point between 4th of July & Labor Day weekend & unless you’ve got an extended vacay planned for August, you’re probably like us…itching to get outta town for a few days!
Half Moon Bay is a vibrant coastal town located ~40 minutes south of San Francisco, the perfect place for a weekend away with your pup. A temperate climate, wide-range of outdoor activities, and proximity to Northern California’s picturesque coast give way to adventures aplenty. After a long day of exploring, dogs & their owners can retire to one of Half Moon Bay’s many pup-friendly inns + hotels featuring doggie beds, treats, goodie bags and more. A few snob-worthy spots to stay + eat:
