Life in Coastal Pescadero

Coastal Living Magazine recently names Pescadero one of the Top Ten Happiest Seaside towns in the United States. 

Joining such well known coastal Meccas as LaJolla, Newport, Sag Harbor and Pa'ia Town, Maui, Pescadero was called"a hometown blessed with clean air, beautiful and uncrowded beaches, and great off-road bicycling and hiking in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Plus there are redwoods and artichokes aplenty here. "Originally a popular destination on the stagecoach route from Santa Cruz to San Francisco, Pescadero maintains the stage-stop flavor with colorful shops and eats—and is full of natural splendor, like those towering redwoods of Butano State Park".
