Journeys of Discovery: Pacifica, California—Highway 1 seaside paradise just 20 minutes from SFO

Pacifica on highway 1 just south of San Francisco is so close to the Bay Area that one can see both SFO and the town of Seaside from the window of an airplane

The seaside town of Pacifica, California is just 14 miles from San Francisco but it’s a world apart. Join Jamie Monozon, CEO of Pacifaca Chamber of Commerce for an insider’s look at the town's many attractions. 

It’s surfers' paradise—there’s even an annual International Doggie Surfing Championship. Pacifica is an artist enclave, a hikers' paradise; there's crab fishing on the pier, whale watching, dining in family-owned eateries: beachcombing and live music are all popular draws.
