If you're torn between a city getaway and one that gets back to nature, consider a visit to the Coastside area just south and west of San Francisco. This rural stretch of oceanfront is so close to, yet distinct from, the city that you can stay in a secluded lighthouse overlooking a cragged unpopulated coastline and still pop into town for dining at one of San Francisco's finest restaurants. From Pacifica on down through Half Moon Bay to Pescadero, this part of the California coast is a tapestry of small towns, farmland, gorgeous coastal scenery and beaches, all easily accessed from Highway 1. The big attraction here is the ocean, of course, but historic buildings, Mayberry main streets, parks, trails and wildlife preserves make this much more than just a day at the beach.

Do you think summer is on its way yet? Last week I was visiting grandchildren in Palo Alto, which is usually cooler than here. Wouldn’t you know it?They were having a heat wave and we were sweltering in 100+ weather there, while here in La Cañada you were considerably cooler. Friends in the Bay Area were accusing me of bringing the hot weather with me. Last Sunday we escaped the oppressive heat by going to the beach at Half Moon Bay (near San Francisco), which was gorgeous even though by 5:30 p.m. the fog was rolling in. It didn’t matter that it was getting foggy, the kids still loved teasing the waves as they ran in and out of the surf.

Another year, another few dozen California getaways, and that means it is time for this travel writer to go back and find the best of the best for this year's Cary Awards. As in past years, we will take a look at some of the more memorable experiences of the year and single out those deserving of special recognition. Not that any of these places really care. It's not like they are running ads in Travel and Leisure magazine campaigning for their Cary Award. But in our humble little way we'd like to give each of these a hearty "job well done" and, at the same time, let our readers know about some especially enjoyable getaways they may have missed reading about.

Just a few miles south and west of bustling San Francisco you will find Half Moon Bay, a rural oasis of charm set along pristine California seashore. It’s in this small village that you’ll find quaint shops and a little more laid-back pace than the bay cities less than a half-hour drive to the northeast. There are lighthouses and farms nearby, flower markets, spectacular tide pools and a harbor with the freshest of crab, salmon and halibut that find their way onto tables of some excellent local restaurants.

The beaches of California always rank highly on those national lists of best beaches, but a good beach does not necessarily make a good beach town. Not all beach towns are created equal, and the Golden State runs the gamut from quaint to upscale. So maybe the best barometer for choosing your beach town is charm — in other words, it makes you feel like this is a true getaway, and it's where you get a real sense of place. You want it to be someplace special for someone special on that special getaway weekend.
