road trip down to the hidden gem, little town of Moss Landing which is about 1-1.5
hours south from San Jose or 1.5-2 hours from San Francisco. Moss Landing has amazing places for lunch, sea
life, fresh produce stands (any artichoke lovers??), a one-of-a-kind handmade
glass shop, succulent nurseries, whale watching, and kayaking.
1 for a longer coastal route that has amazing ocean views or Highway 101 where
you’ll end up passing by Castroville, the town that dubbed Marilyn Monroe the
Artichoke Queen. You’ll know you made it
to Moss Landing when you see the two big power plant towers.
