“Dinosaurs have arrived and some fun shopping....”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

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
and then go into Spanishtown and take a look through the stores. I enjoyed this a lot.

I liked the garden store packed with fountains and sculptures the most.

“Jurassic Park rusted”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

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!

“Treasures for your back yard”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

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!

“Has Really Changed Over the Years”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

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. That isn't the case any longer.

“Giant Dinosaurs”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

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.
