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.
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.
TravelPaso.com, Paso Robles’ official tourism website, featured an abridged version of our original blog post, 7 Things To Do With Kids In Downtown Paso Robles, in its September 2017 issue. Here’s that guest post version as published.
I could do oh-so-many posts about how to have fun with kids in Downtown Paso Robles, since this is our…
In February 2017, we ventured to the Pacific Northwest. And since my husband was on this trip, it was glorious just for the simple fact that I was no longer out numbered.
We survived the plane ride and car trips getting to where we needed to go. And by survive, I mean we didn’t go completely bonkers keeping the little children constantly occupied. But as soon as we settled in at the vacation house, it was clear that the baby had a stomach bug It’s always something right?
In June, a friend and I took our children to the Elfin Forest in Los Osos. The 90-acre county and state park encompasses an estuary and woodlands with scenic walking trails. It also includes a pygmy oak forest and opportunities for some really awesome Instagram-worthy photography of your kids.
