The San Francisco Peninsula: A Coast Side Day Trip

California is Number One in the United States for its diverse agricultural products, and the San Francisco Peninsula has its share of offerings. For example, they grow large quantities of Brussel sprouts and pumpkins in the region.

On a sunny fall day, we decided to make pumpkins the theme of our day trip. With our ultimate destination, Half Moon Bay, also known as the Pumpkin Capital, in mind, we started in San Francisco and headed south along the Pacific Coast, Highway 1.

Rosalind Bakery in Pacifica was our breakfast stop, just a block from the ocean. Pacifica is the perfect San Francisco day trip.

To celebrate the fall produce, Farmer John’s Pumpkin Farm is a family-owned farm. The pet-friendly pumpkin farm lets you bring the whole family to your pumpkin adventure.
