Dogs are allowed on the trail. Rock climbing & bouldering aplenty.

This off-the-beaten-path restaurant may not look like much from the outside, but there's a reason they have a line out the door every night, and only take cash. Sit at the kitchen counter and watch the cooks make magic. Please note: this popular spot has a wait list most of the time. Doors open around 5pm, line starts to form about 1 hour before.

여행 팁

준비물

Keep it simple & pack comfortable clothes.

California may have some of the most upscale metropolitan cities in the USA, but the Central Coast is all about "the SLO life", where everyone wears flip flops & a smile. Pack your best sun dress or beach attire, don't forget your hat, and get outside 360 days a year in comfort. Be sure to bring layers, as it may be chilly in the morning, with warm afternoons, and breezy evenings - you know, your typical Coastal California weather!
