Visiting the Central California Coast

California’s Central Coast is inviting all year round, but summer’s surely a highlight. Whether it’s antiquing in Carmel-by-the-Sea, enjoying high-octane excitement at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Salinas, or appreciating the arts in Santa Barbara, the fun doesn’t stop all season long.

One of the most beautiful regions in the entire world, the California’s Central Coast is begging to be explored. Cover the most ground by packing up the car and embarking on a scenic driving tour. No matter your starting point, countless, one-of-a-kind, roadside attractions await in both directions, and communities like San Simeon and Morro Bay make excellent places to get out and stretch your legs.

Don't miss the 22nd Annual Watsonville Strawberry Festival on August 6th and 7th. Make your way to downtown Watsonville to be a part of the celebration, which features specialty vendors, live music, parades and more. It’s free fun with a little something for everyone in the family.

To the south in Santa Barbara, crooner Ray LaMontagne brings his raspy and soulful voice – along with more than a decade of material – to the Santa Barbara Bowl. Get your tickets before they sell out. The music starts at 8 p.m.

In the beginning of October, cooling weather means harvest season is on its way. From October 7th through the 10th, the Santa Barbara Vintners host the 2016 Celebration of Harvest Weekend, which brings a variety of dinners and tastings to locations throughout the Santa Ynez Valley. Check local listings for more information on how to celebrate the hard work of local wine producers or just attend the Festival Grand Tasting at the Old Mission Santa Inés in Solvang on October 10th.

That same weekend, the 2016 Pioneer Day Parade is a great way to find a sense of local history and culture in Paso Robles. Held on October 8th at Paso Robles City Park, near the downtown area, the fun surrounding the actual parade includes classic car showcases, local food offerings, and activities just for youngsters. It all starts at 10 a.m.
