"Only services around for miles"

Sears Ranch Road is not exactly the hip happening Bay Area spot by anyone else's standards...but for La Honda, it absolutely is. Home to the post office, the market, the elementary school, and Sullivan's bar, it is just about the best that the town has to offer.

On any given weekend night, you can find locals of all ages convening here (yes, the kids are allowed in the bars!) and like many hillside Bay Area towns, there is this phenomena of really good music being played at the local hole-in-the-wall bars. La Honda is no exception. Of course, the small town feel is accompanied by the beautifulness of the redwoods. Perhaps even better, this is just about the only spot in town where you will get ample cell phone reception. Not bad, indeed.
  • Decent bar scene
  • Many of the necessary amenities
  • Great small-town feel
  • Middle of nowhere
  • Very expensive
