Bay Area Coastal Towns

Living in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, we have the pleasure of hosting many family and friends from across the states and overseas. Of course, San Francisco and Napa Valley always top the must-see list for first-time visitors. Never the less, we manage to lure our guests on a tour of our favorite Bay Area coastal towns.

Our top five favorite places along the Bay Area coast include Monterey, Carmel, Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, and Capitola. I’ve played tour guide many times in each of these places and always discover something new every time I go. If you find yourself in the Bay Area, be sure to add these unique California seaside towns to your must-see list.
