San Luis Obispo County offers an array of outdoor activities, amazing eateries, wineries and breweries, and colorful shops, so there is truly something for everyone to enjoy. One of the best-hidden gems in California, SLO County is a secret you’ll want to get in on. But be warned, visit once and you’ll fall in love. If we haven’t already sold you on spending spring break on the Central Coast here’s a list of activities.
If you are in search of adventure, then look no further. San Luis Obispo and the surrounding areas are full of opportunities to get your heart-pounding. Are you an ocean enthusiast? Head to the nearby coast and participate in a surf lesson, rent a kayak or stand-up paddle or just take a dip, either way, you’ll certainly have your blood pumping. Not so much a waterbug? Take to the sand at Oceano Dunes, rent dune buggies or an ATV, and conquer the hills. Want to lay it all out on the line? Skydive over wine country and experience the beauty of the Central Coast from above.
We all know half the vacation is the food. San Luis Obispo County is lucky to be home to many farms, allowing restaurants to take advantage of some of the freshest fruits, vegetables, and meat. Our very own restaurant Brasserie SLO features produce from our Edible Gardens. The Central Coast is not only known for its food but also for its more than two-hundred and fifty wineries and many breweries. So there are endless options to sip and savor.
If your vacation style is all about rejuvenation, then you’ve come to the right place. From oceanfront yoga classes to natural hot springs, there are so many ways to refresh. We recommend grabbing a good read and soaking in some sunshine on a cabana on our Rooftop Pool Deck (did we mention there’s a bar?) or indulge yourself with a full spa day at Spa Cerro, with a massage, wrap or facial and end your day with a glass of sparkling wine on our Spa Terrace.
The wide-open spaces of San Luis Obispo County make it the ideal playground for athletes alike. The green sweeping hills offer more than 31 trails ranging in experience levels and height. Mountain bikers will also rejoice as most hiking trails feature biking paths as well. Sticking to the road? Road bikers can also choose from a variety of roads, winding through wine country or near the ocean. We offer complimentary bikes, for those looking to cruise around downtown.
You can really shop until you drop in San Luis Obispo County. From artisanal chocolates, charcuterie, and cheese, to fine jewelry and clothing, you’re bound to find something you love. Looking to take something home with a little character? There are many antique and vintage shops located within the county.
