From the elegance of Hearst Castle to the vineyards of Paso Robles and the Classic California of Pismo Beach – the Central Coast has a wide variety of unique California experiences to offer you and your family.

Here are a few resources to get you started:

Morro Rock from Morro Bay State Park

KCBX Community Calendar – events submitted by the public for a calendar maintained by our local public radio station.

Highway 1

Central Coast Tourism – a comprehensive guide to all the major sights and attraction along the coast from Ventura through Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo County to Monterrey.

Moonstone Beach

We’re not JUST about beaches – but we do have some great ones!

Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa

You pretty much HAVE to stroll through Mission Plaza in downtown SLO to legitimately claim you’ve been here.

The Neptune Pool at Hearst Castle

You can’t go swimming in the Neptune Pool, unfortunately, but the views are spectacular from this California State Park – Hearst Castle. (Weekend tours are often booked solid at Hearst Castle, so make your reservation before you come if possible.)

Cal Poly from Bishop Peak

If you’re looking to get your youth excited about college, a stroll around Cal Poly should do the trick.

Bishop Peak

They may not be mountains, but we do have some great trails and parks with awesome Central Coast views.

We have THE BEST Farmer’s Market on the planet (editor’s personal opinion, so take it for what it’s worth). Thursday night, here is where you need to be: SLO Farmer’s Market.
