Local Routes of Fun


We all know that the beauty of the central coast extends from the serene scenes of the coastal waters to the rolling hills of the surrounding wine country. On any given day, especially during the summer, one can encounter hundreds upon hundreds of people travelling the paths of our beautiful area. Multiple advertising dollars are spent annually to attract people to a specific destination, winery, monument, etc. As seasoned locals we would like to suggest a few day long activities that would maximize time and open up to pristine sights, some not advertised on any map:

As veteran wine tasters, we recommend a maximum of three wineries per trip, lots of water and of course eating before, during and after.
Do not forget, always designate a sober driver and taste responsibly.
