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!

The dinosaurs still attract you but what used to be a nice little area with several small shops now only has a couple of small shops and a large area with fountains, statues ect. for your yard. I really miss the old Spanish Town as some of my cooler "finds" were purchased there. I never used to pass it by.... More

It was interesting to see these giants. There were lots of them. We weren't sure if it was a local artist who built them or if they came from Mexico.

What a unique place. Will have to go back when I have space in my car and more $$$ in my pocket as some of the fountains are wonderful.

If you're going to Half Moon Bay, this is a nice little place to stop by for a quick photo op. My boys love dinosaurs so they took pictures, ran around for a while but then there was nothing else To do. Nice little 15 minute stop before heading out to where we were really going to spend our day.

The fantastic iron sculptures catch your eyes, and there is the most amazing "wooly" mammoth but once you go into the shop area it is a bit of a disappoint. If I had kids with me, I would have wondered were are the small toy dinosaurs ?

Maybe I was expecting too much but the word "town" meant something bigger than a big farm house with multiple shops to me but this was exactly what it was. I'm not much of a knick knack shopper but if others are, they should drop by. There are shops with lamps,souvenirs, and of course lots of fountains and garden/yard theme... More

It was funny. We were driving around and saw this place by chance. Look a dinosaur we yelled out as we passed the side of a windy road. You don't see that everyday so we stopped by. WOW. There are many of them and then two giraffes. Funny. We took pictures of these creatures and then headed for the shops.... More
