Short, scenic drive from SF: Pacifica Worth Exploring

I was pleased to see a beautiful photo of the Pacifica coastline on the front page of the SF Chronicle’s Real Estate Section.  Dana Perrigan’s cover story about Pacifica, CA highlights its small-town feel, unique character and proximity to San Francisco.

With Daly City to the north, Millbrae and San Bruno to the east, and Montara to the south, its 38,000 residents (as of U.S. Census 2000) enjoy easy access along with a healthy dose of recreation.  Yes, it’s a cooler climate than more inland areas of the peninsula, but as the article states, sunnier than non-residents might think.  As locals already know, micro-climates are distinct throughout the various neighorhoods along the entire coastside.

An additional point worth mentioning is Pacifica’s schools.  Pacifica offers good school choices, including a home school support system within the District.
