A reminder of the many dairies that thrived around Pescadero in the early 20th century, Harley Farms offers a taste of a bygone era. Tour the grounds populated by adorable Alpine goats, and step in to a converted stable to shop just-made chèvre adorned with colorful herbs and other local goods.
Watch the local elephant seals sunbathe and raise their young at Año Nuevo State Park on the coast. In spring, head to Pigeon Point Light Station to see migrating gray whales. The observation deck at the lighthouse offers 300 degree views and docents are often on site to help you spot the majestic visitors.
