Ocean Beach in San Francisco is pretty rich in Pleistocene marine stuff, especially echinoderms.

If you live in SoCal, then the beaches along the coast have some nice fossiliferous sandstone and shale.

Gaviota and El Capitan Beaches near Santa Barbara have petrified whale bone and cenozoic marine fossils.

This website has some information on the geology of the formation.

This research study has information on the formation and its fossils.
