Family-Friendly Winetasting in Templeton California

You’re visiting the picturesque wine country on California’s Central Coast. Let me set the scene for you:

Clear blue skies give a stunning backdrop to rolling hills dotted with twisty oaks and row after row of vineyard grapes. 

You have your sunhat on and your fall outfit is on point. It’s a good day. You can’t wait to clink to the future with the hubby and do some much-needed wine tasting. 

But …

You have your kids with you. Who get bored.  Easily.

What do you do?

Enter the magic of the kid-friendly winery.

Harmony Headlands Hike with Kids, Cayucos

For kiddos like mine who may not have the patience for a full-fledged grownup hike, the Harmony Headlands Trail is a totally doable 1.5-mile trek. Just enough for the fam to get outside, get some fresh air, and see what there is to see off the beautiful Highway 1 Discovery Route.

Harmony Headlands is a 784-acre State Park reaching out toward the coast. You can hike there from 6 a.m. to sunset and there’s dirt parking with room for about 10 cars at the entrance off southbound Highway 1, five minutes north of Cayucos.
