Visiting the Central California Coast

As communities along the central California coast make their way out of the mild winter and into an even more pleasant spring, visitors find as much to see and do as any time of year.

You can bask in the sunshine as brisk and balmy breezes gently whisk the white sand on countless calm beaches, or join in the fun as communities from Gilroy to Carpinteria host a variety of family-friendly activities.

The warmer weather of the blossoming spring means the numerous first-rate golf courses along the central California coast are becoming even more inviting.

Pebble Beach, one of the most highly regarded golf courses on the planet, is just minutes from Carmel-by-the-Sea, Carmel, and Monterey, and February 8th through 11th, the facility plays host to a marquee event. The 2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is a chance to see your favorite professionals and A-list celebrities compete for a $6.1 million purse.

Film buffs flock to Santa Barbara, February 4th through 13th, as more than 200 short, feature-length, and documentary films are screened as part of the 31st Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Check local listings for show times and information on special events like panel discussions, meet-and-greets, and more.

Looking for laughs? On February 24th, the world-famous Second City improv troupe brings spends an evening at the Sunset Center in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Hooking Up With the Second City starts at 8 p.m.

Cut loose in Atascadero as local celebrities and community luminaries cut a rug in Atascadero's Dancing with Our Stars event. Head to the Pavilion on the Lake, near the downtown area, to join in the fun on March 18th and 19th.
