The Dinosaurs are a great to see as you come over 92 into Half Moon Bay! They are very playful and BIG!

Spanish Town is a few miles from downtown Half Moon Bay on the way over the hill on Highway 92. We were looking for succulents and stopped to see the big steel dinosaur sculptures. Which are a fun photo op. Great statuary and garden ornament shop. Worth the stop.

This use to be a great place with new and exciting items. However, this last visit, there were lots of broken items and nothing special that jumped out at me.

Do we really have to have these embarrassing structures on the entrance to Half Moon Bay? I think they should be put somewhere else where, if you want to see them, you can. I think these are a blight. They are not for everyone, and why they were put there in the first place...very dorky. I have to see them... More

When driving down highway 92 to Half Moon Bay, one wonders have he dinosaurs taken over the coast? You see the Dinosaurs in their garden area, looking at you, deciding what their next step will be. Your kids will wonder how high are they? Yes, its worth stopping for a bit to take some pictures of these interesting metal dinosaurs... More

The absolute best (and largest) assortment of outdoor garden art, fountains, spheres and plant containers ever. If the gigantic metal dinosaurs, Buddhas, and giraffes didn't get your attention from the roadway you might need to get your glasses checked!

Spanishtown is a collection of small shops on Highway 92 just outside Half Moon Bay. They have a HUGE selection of backyard accoutrements—fountains, sprays, sculptures, benches, vases, stoves, urns, antique doors, etc. If this is what you are looking for and live in the San Francisco Bay Area, go there first!
