Moss Landing

Moss Landing is a quaint, historic fishing village that is full of hidden treasures and enjoyable activities including: shopping for Antiques, buying fresh seafood, visiting fine art studios, dining in delightful restaurants, coastal lodging, birdwatching, boating, fishing, whale watching, observing wildlife in a National Reserve wetlands, walking on the beach, exploring history and historic architecture, planning a garden, escaping to a scenic hidden place, enjoying the mild climate, and surfing. There are several popular annual special events not to be missed. This charming seaside town has something for everyone!

Every year Moss Landing holds an Antique Street Fair. People come from all over the United States to find beautiful and interesting treasures. A couple of years ago, I had been looking for a antique crib to put on the side of my house and found one! Charlie and my mom bought it for me as an early birthday present. I have fallen asleep, read a good book and done my bible studies on this crib.

Moss Landing is located only a short distance from Monterey Pennisula and Santa Cruz; a short day trip from the San Jose and San Francisco Bay Area; and a day or weekend adventure to a milder climate from the Central Valley towns including Modesto, Los Banos, Fresno, Stockton and others. Easy to find, just take Highway One and look for the Signs.
