Half Moon Bay Fall Activities

Fall and early winter are an extra special time in Half Moon BayCalifornia, a vibrant coastal town located approximately 40 minutes south of San Francisco. Widely recognized as the pumpkin capital of the world, Half Moon Bay offers the perfect seasonal outings and indulgences, from pumpkin weigh-offs, festivals and farms to relaxing specialty pumpkin spa experiences and pumpkin ale on tap. Seaside bluffs overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean provide the perfect hiking spot during the warm sunny days, while cool crisp evenings can be filled with shopping for holiday gifts on Main Street and dining on fresh seasonal produce at some of the Bay Area's top restaurants.
