    Anyone who lives in Pacifica knows the routine: You tell peeps you live there and you're met with a groan and a "omigod it's so foggy there!" Okay, it's foggy sometimes, as it is everywhere near the ocean in NoCal. But Pacifica is so much more than fog! It's also home to amazing surfing, hiking, horseback riding, eating, drinking, and lots more. And, for all of your city dwellers, it's just a quick 15- to 20-minute drive from San Francisco. In essence: It's the perfect quickie day trip for Bay Area residents who want a low-key and super-cheap getaway (Um, one of the items on our must-hit list is a beachside Taco Bell!). Granted, if you're on the hunt for the latest Isabel Marant booties or the like, alas, you're better off within city limits. But if you're hankering for some sea air, breathtaking sunsets, and tasty grub, by all means hop in your Zipcar, head south on the 1, and take our handy-dandy Pacifica hit list (after the jump) with you. We'll see you on the road!
