The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay Introduces Signature Drive
The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay has unveiled a new driving experience, which takes advantage of the resort’s stunning coastal location and its access to some of northern California’s most breathtaking scenery. Launched in October of last year and encompassing 65 miles, The Signature Drive is the Half Moon Bay area’s first official mapped automobile drive. It covers the following five distinctly different micro- regions:
  • Historic Main Street – Nestled within the picturesque town of Half Moon Bay, Historic Main Street offers year-round sightseeing, shops, restaurants and galleries.
  • The Pumpkin Region – This is California farm-to-market country, where motorists can pick their own produce from the bounty of pumpkin patches and local farms that make the area a foodie’s dream.
  • California’s Redwood Forest – Close to Half Moon Bay lies the awe-inspiring Redwood Forest, shaded by a magnificent, mystical canopy of ancient California Redwood trees.
  • Santa Cruz Mountains – This scenic and dramatic mountain range offers tastes from more than 60 of the state’s cult wineries.
  • Pacific Coast – Guests can end their drive by viewing the spectacular coast in front of The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, where some of the largest winter surf in the world is recorded each year.
Guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay may request complimentary maps of The Signature Drive. Located 23 miles southwest of San Francisco International Airport, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay is the San Francisco Bay Area’s only oceanfront resort.  Offering a 16-treatment room destination spa, acclaimed ocean view cuisine and wine experiences, and world-class golf at two adjoining courses, the 261-room coastal estate sits atop a rugged bluff overlooking 50 miles of pristine California coastline.
