Thanks to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, Pacifica is a dream for anyone who enjoys the beach the wonders of the ocean. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that thanks to the relatively chilly Bay Area climate, the beaches around Pacifica are not exactly a tropical paradise. Still, ocean lovers will find plenty to captivate and inspire, especially surfers, who regularly flock to the popular Rockaway Beach neighborhood of the city. Those who prefer to stay indoors and avoid the occasionally wet and chilly weather will find plenty of stunning views of the wild Pacific throughout the city.
Dining in the City
While the Bay Area boasts many high-end fine dining establishments, Pacifica's dining scene reflects a more casual style that is typical of Northern California. One well-reviewed casual establishment is Columbo's Deli, which serves Dutch crunch bread, a popular staple of delis in the Bay Area. Also characteristic of California is the availability of Mexican and Asian foods in Pacifica. One surprisingly unique dining feature available to residents and visitors is a beachside Taco Bell location that offers standard fast food fare in an extraordinary setting. Enjoy a burrito or churro cinnamon stick while breathing in the fresh, salty ocean air.
