Central Coasting.

By: Alamo Management / Jul, 09 2024

When the weather heats up in Southern California, you have options: turn the AC on full blast OR continue an epic road trip through the often-much-cooler-climate of the Central Coast.  Once you've hit Solvang for Danish breakfast, you are a stone's throw away from the gorgeous San Luis Obispo Region, where you will encounter a series of worthy stops, each one bidding for your time and attention.  An official list of things to do can likely be found in a book at the library (they still exist!) or on the internet - https://centralcoast-tourism.com.  For now, we will share an eclectic set of simple pleasures that some of us have personally enjoyed along the Central Coast in the form of… choose your own adventure:

  • (Morro Bay) Grab a bite of fresh seafood on the boardwalk OR watch frolicking otters rolling in seaweed under the extinct Volcano that is Morro Rock
  • (Harmony) Soak in the wonder of a town with a population of 18 OR cool down with a scoop of your favorite flavor from the Harmony Valley Creamery Truck
  • (San Simeon) Spend a day exploring the famed Hearst Castle OR immerse yourself in the raw nature of the Piedras Blancas Rookery.

To be sure, many of the above items could be experienced in a short timeframe and you could get a taste of it all in 2-3 days.  These locations are that close to one another.  Our experience is that there will be one thing or many things that cause you to stay in town just a little while longer.  There is that much beauty.  For this leg of the journey, we recommend that you take time to enjoy the moment.
