If you are looking for a new destination for your next road trip or vacation, the Central Coast of California is the perfect place for you. If you are lucky enough to live nearby, the drive is short and sweet and filled with gorgeous views. The Central Coast, from Santa Barbara to San Luis Obispo offers a great deal. Besides being next door to the ocean, it is home to many wineries.
From vineyards to mountains, if you love the outdoors, you simply have to visit. San Luis Obispo, named the “Happiest Place in America” on the Oprah Winfrey show, is home to many hiking trails, including one called Avila Ridge with views that will literally take your breath away.
If you love fresh produce, much of California’s comes from this area, so make sure you visit the San Luis Obispo farmers market. It takes place every Thursday, year round, and is located in the heart of Downtown San Luis Obispo. It’s no wonder people that live there are so happy!
For you lovers of all things ocean, you can visit many different beaches, from Santa Barbara to Pismo Beach, and all the way up to Avila Beach. Avila is the warmest of all the Central Coast beaches, and for all of you wine lovers out there, you will find a few wineries nearby.
Make the Central Coast a priority on your list of things to do. You will be very glad you did.
