Becoming an Official Central Coast Tourism Ambassador

As a SLO CAL Storyteller, the region’s tourism district will be arranging monthly adventures for us to try out along California’s awesome Central Coast. This ranges in anything from water excursions and horseback riding to nature tours in the backcountry expanses of our region. Then we will take pics and video along the way, write about it, and post it on our blog & theirs.

Two in Tow & On The Go Review_Centennial Trail COVER

Centennial Trail, Paso Robles

Centennial Trail is a roughly 1 mile stretch of flat, paved pathway from Lana Street to Mohawk Court on the city’s east side. The trail is stroller-friendly and completely off-road. The trail also features a seasonal creek, a canopy of beautiful twisty oaks and spots to see deer. The trail is popular with joggers and dog walkers, but we like to buddy up when venturing anywhere off-road or out of view of others.

The Morro Bay Embarcadero with Kids

Exploring the Morro Bay Embarcadero with kids is one of our hands-down favorite adventures. So much so, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write about it. This day includes rides, treats, pretty views, TAFFY and a chance to feed some awesome seals.

This adventure takes you to the lovely sea fishing town of Morro Bay, California. It’s famous for the iconic Morro Rock, one of SLO County’s “Nine Sisters” of volcanic peaks stretching along Highway 1. Morro Rock is the only one of the peaks sitting in the water. Elsewhere, the city is made up of a small but vibrant downtown, homes, beach life and a bustling harbor. Along that harbor, you’ll find The Embarcadero.

Review: The newly renovated Barney Schwartz Park – As Seen in PASO Magazine

The new play equipment is bright, fun and offers a fairly diverse set of play structures. Among them are some really great nature-inspired tree stump steps, large boulders connecting the climbing decks and a fun ring twister to stand on and spin. The kids were also excited to try out the cascade climber, which features foothold cutouts on a series of panels to encourage kids to climb up, down and sideways.
