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.

The Heilmann Park Splash Pad is the only FREE splash pad in the North County.

Hop’s Bounce House, Atascadero

Hop’s Bounce House is one of the few real indoor play places to beat the heat or rain for families. Designed for babies to tweens, the facility features a bunch of different bounce houses to jump around in, climb on and slide down.  The setup is well thought-out with the cubby wall for shoes, toy area for babies and toddlers, TVs, the bathrooms and especially all the comfy couches and seating!

Review: Donating a Simplay3 Sharing Library to the Paso Robles Children’s Museum

The public is invited to “Take a Book, Share a Book” at the Paso Robles Children’s Museum’s Little Free Library now installed at 623 13th St. in downtown Paso Robles, Calif.  Designed by American company Simplay3, this Sharing Library is a modestly-sized box on a stand that reaches nearly 5 feet tall and features a clear plexiglass door so the books stored inside are clearly visible. All you do is open the little door to take a book + leave a book.
