Review of Avila Lighthouse Suites, Avila Beach

Overall, this hotel is a must for hotel-scouting families looking for something kid-friendly. It’s perfect for children in the hotel amenities, setup, and location. But, it’s also special because not only are your kids’ needs accounted for (and who are we kidding – they’re the bosses anyway), but the adults also feel like they’re on a pampered beach vacation.  The hotel is steps from the ocean, there are complimentary white fluffy towels in the pool area and there’s a free waffle bar with whipped cream in the morning.

Our Summer of Travel Blogging

I’d love to do more.

Heilmann Regional Park Splash Pad Atascadero Review - 12

Heilmann Regional Park Splash Pad, Atascadero

The Heilmann Park Splash Pad is the only FREE splash pad in the North County. It’s located at  the larger Heilmann Regional Park and Playground at 9400 El Bordo Ave. in Atascadero.  The splash pad is situated right by the restrooms. The waterplay spot super small, but very popular with littles.Readers on my Facebook Page say the splash pad is NOW ON for summer 2019.
