If you’re going to the California Mid Stare Fair with small children, I highly recommend heading to the entire Rancho Frontier area on the southwest side of the fairgrounds (South Gate area of Frontier Town) and making that your home base.
I’m happy to share that the fine folks behind PASO Magazine (where we have a column) have created a second publication called Colony Magazine for our neighboring city of Atascadero!
And I’m absolutely honored for our Two in Tow column to be included in its inaugural issue published July 1, 2018!
Here is a guest post I contributed this summer to Paso Robles’ official tourism website, TravelPaso.com:
When most people talk about their quintessential summer, I often hear about relaxing poolside getaways. But when I think about my own perfect summer staple – it’s all about Paso’s Concerts in the Park.
Here’s our June 1, 2018 column featured in PASO Magazine. It’s all about one of our fave kid-friendly walks in town, which leads to a neat display of public art!
This park is known for its 28-foot climbing structure , complete with crazy tall lookout points and a GIANT tube slide that dips down from the top lookout. It also has lots of grass, a beautiful creek and bridge, perfect for littles, and nice restrooms.
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.
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.
Here’s the abridged version of our review of Come Play, as published in the February 2018 edition of PASO Magazine in print and online. Come Play has four dedicated indoor play spaces for bounce houses, basketball, toys and a giant play structure. It’s designed to entertain babies to middle schoolers.
