There are several shops, art galleries and restaurants in this area, plus a good book store. I especially enjoy the art, including the glass, at the Dapper Frog. The Chowder Bowl is a good, relatively inexpensive restaurant.

Nice. Good shops. Many choices for food. Great beach access. Take time to visit just 5 minutes off Hwy 101. You'll go back.

Great little enclave filled with several distinct shops and cafes. Very first class neighborhood. When you dine here, you feel like you've been here more than a couple hours. Next time we'll try to stay here.

Beautiful beach even when it's cold and windy. Easy to get to, lots of parking and several entrances. When Temps are in the 90s and 100s in the valley, it's usually in the 60s at the coast. That's just right. Make sure you bring your...More
