It’s been said time and time again that Pacifica is the Bay Area’s best-kept secret. And current conditions in Pacifica real estate values have yielded a big opportunity for those who enjoy coastal living.
If you love the simple pleasures of life, the outdoors and cool coastal climate, you’ll find much to love in Pacifica. Where else can you live that offers such variety of nature? Its dramatic coastline boasts some of the Bay Area’s best surfing and paragliding, plus a close-up view of the gray whales’ northerly migration route. Its rugged terrain hosts 3,000 plus acres of park land for walking, biking, picnicking, bird watching and wildlife viewing.
Looking for a little history and culture? You can stand atop Sweeney Ridge at the very spot where San Francisco Bay was discovered in 1769 by Spanish explorer Gaspar de Portola, or visit the 1839 home of General Francisco Sanchez. The arts are thriving with Pacifica Spindrift Players offering local live theatre. Pacifica Performances presents a series of world-class music and entertainment. Last but not least, Sanchez Art Center provides art that everyone enjoys. Don’t forget the Annual Pacific Coast Fog Fest, a two-day street fair with a coastal flavor. Pacifica is also home to the only Taco Bell restaurant located directly on a beach! Locals love the “surfs-up” window. The Travel Channel ranked this Taco Bell number nine on its World Best Fast Food Stops.
Some think that the best thing about living in Pacifica is the true sense of community you find here. You quickly get to know your neighbors, local shop owners, and the names of each and every dog and child on the block. It’s a small community offers just that – a sense of community.
Another perk is that it’s just 20 minutes from downtown San Francisco and the San Francisco International Airport.
