Cayucos Beach is one of our faves for taking little kids to the beach because it has free parking, public bathrooms, an outside shower spout for rinsing off, lifeguard towers and …. it also has a playground right on the sand!
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.
In Spring 2018, we wrote about the Paso Robles Inn as part of the nationally distributed article “Spring Screening: Unplug from Tech and Get the Family into Nature” by Trivago Magazine.
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.
We’re #SoSLOCAL because we’re a versatile, adventure loving family who knows SLO County by heart. We’re excited to share the area’s beauty, its FUN and all its awesome getaways. Here’s a look at some of our fave SLO County kid-ventures.
A few weeks ago I introduced my latest partnership — trying out Give Fitness Health Club in Atascadero with the kids each week. Here’s my review of Week 1 & 2. Read in to grab the Give Fitness promo code to score $5 off your membership EACH MONTH.
Both of our kids have December birthdays, three days apart, less than two weeks from Christmas. Needless to say, our holiday season is a liiittle much. But a ton of that stress was alleviated when the kids turned 2 and 4 because we chose a destination birthday at Central Coast Aquarium In Avila Beach. And this is one venue that your guests will LOVE.
Here’s our final pumpkin patch in our series of pumpkin patches we visited this fall! River K is a very rural pumpkin patch where you can pick pumpkins right off the vine. Or, pick some up around the cute little pumpkin stand up front. The business has been family owned and operated for decades by the Knuze family on River Road. (Get it? River K).
Next up in our series of pumpkin patches is the truly wonderful Jack Creek Farms in Templeton, California. It’s open year-round and they’ve put a lot of time and effort into making their farm kid-friendly, including fenced-in play areas and a thoughtful layout that includes a large picnic table spot.
Last weekend Jurassic Quest came to our city, filling the Paso Robles Events Center with all the family-friendly dinosaur goodness of life-like animatronic dinosaurs, crafts and play. Think day at the natural history museum, but you get to ride the dinos.
