If you follow along on Instagram, you know that I just returned from a pretty amazing trip to Half Moon Bay for Thanksgiving. We wanted to get away for a few days, and didn’t want to travel too far. My boyfriend Dave had stayed at The Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay a few years ago for a work trip and loved it, so we decided that would be the perfect place to spend Thanksgiving. And it most certainly was. I mean, this was the view from our room!
The coastline felt like Ireland with the beautiful green grass and cliffs over the ocean! There was even a bagpiper at sunset every evening. Walking along the coast every morning was a definite highlight of the trip.
One day we drove to the local redwood forest to go hiking which was so, so beautiful. Then we drove down to Thomas Fogarty Winery for fabulous wine tasting. Bonus- guests of the Ritz Carlton receive complimentary wine tasting here!
We sure did eat good in Half Moon Bay. Some of our favorites were Sam’s Chowder House for beautiful views and awesome clam chowder, It’s Italia for delicious thin crust pizza, and Cetrella for a yummy dinner with live music. We also loved the firepits at the Ritz Carlton for wine and s’mores!
This would be a perfect place to stay for a honeymoon with other stops along the California coast. And even better- clients of Ever After Honeymoons receive breakfast daily and an $85 spa credit! Contact us to help with your visit!
