Visiting Central California Coast

From waterways and wineries, to aquariums and botanical gardens - the Central California Coast rocks with summertime madness. Frolic on the beaches of Pismo, Avila, and New Brighton State, where the sun is warm and the tides are high. Stop in San Simeon and take a tour of Hearst Castle, one of California’s most famous landmarks. Built by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, a walk through this stately castle is royal indeed. Have you ever wanted to learn how olive oil was made or had dreams of driving a stagecoach - well a visit to Paso Robles can grant these wishes and many more. Best Western hotels offer visitors over 30 lodging choices on the Central California Coast. You can book your stay today and begin your vacation tomorrow.

Take a Central California Coast wine tour. From Santa Barbara to San Luis Obispo there are hundreds of wineries to explore. In July the Central Coast Wine Classic is at the Avila Lighthouse. A major charity event in San Luis Obispo and Arroyo Grande, the Wine Classic features local vineyards and wineries, auctions, tastings and pairings. Ending in a lavish dinner hosted at Hearst Castle, the Central Coast Wine Classic is an event not to be missed. Famed vineyards along the coast include: Foxen Vineyard in Santa Maria, the Fess Parker Winery in Los Olivos (also known for the Michael Jackson Ranch), and Laetitia Winery just south of Arroyo Grande.

Spend a day at Pismo Beach, one of the few beaches in California where it’s legal to drive on the beach. Rent an ATV and make all your Bay Watch dreams come true. A small beach community, driving into Pismo is like taking a trip back to the beach towns of the 1960’s. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, and places to rest, minus the city rush of high-rises and traffic. With close to 3,500 acres of dunes, and miles of sand and water - Pismo Beach can be the perfect family get-away.

Think you live in a small town - how about a town of 18. Welcome to Harmony. Located just a few miles south of Cambria, the smallest town in California sits just off Hwy 1. Many pass the tiny locale daily on their way to Hearst Castle, however few take the time to stop. Two businesses operate in Harmony - “Harmony Glass Works and Pottery”, and “Harmony Cellars Winery”. Two perfect places to stop rest and grab a gift for those back home. So the next time you find yourself passing through - remember they are at least two reasons to take a breather.
