Labor Day Weekend Activities on Central Coast

Central Coast Events

Labor Day on Central Coast

If you’re planning a long Labor Day weekend celebration on the Central Coast, you’ve come to the right place! As your Central Coast real estate agent, allow me to fill you in on what events and activities are happening in the area. Attend the ones that sound most fun to you and enjoy the unofficial end to the summer season!

Many locals choose to hang out at Lake Nacimiento or Lake San Antonio over the holiday weekend, so expect crowds. But what better way to celebrate summer than with a boat ride, water sports, fishing, swimming, floating, barbecuing, camping and socializing with family and friends at the lake? Our Central Coast beaches are the next best thing for some salt water fun!

Here are some more great ideas for Labor Day weekend:

  • Start your weekend off with the Paso Robles Classic Car Weekend on Sept. 1-2 at Downtown City Park! Check out the pre-1979 classic cars cruising Friday night and showing in the park on Saturday. More than 300 cars are expected for this event, so if classic cars are your thing, this is the place to be!
  • Sept. 2, head to Vince DiMaggio Park in Marina, CA for a Labor Day Parade & Festival! The parade will begin at 11 a.m. and run until 12:30 p.m. along Reservation Road. It’ll feature military color guard, marching bands, horses, classic cars, dancers and more. After the parade, enjoy live music, food and fun at the festival until 4 p.m.
  • Labor Day Art in the Park takes place in Morro Bay Sept 2-4. Head to City Park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day to browse the work of artists and artisans in a variety of mediums, and purchase art to showcase in your Central Coast home if you feel so inclined!
  • Catch some live music in a park this weekend! You’ve got plenty of options. Head to Concerts in the Plaza in SLO on Friday, the Sizzlin’ Sunday Summer Concerts in Grover Beach or the Village Summer Concert Series in Arroyo Grande on Sunday, and Beer at the Pier Concert in Los Osos/Baywood Park on Monday. Numerous wineries are also hosting live weekend throughout the weekend.
  • Monterey County Fair is running from Aug. 30 to Sept. 4! Head to the Monterey County Fair & Event Center for some old-fashioned, family-friendly fun. There will be carnival rides, livestock exhibits, live music and entertainment, delicious food and everything else you expect to find at a county fair!

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend on the Central Coast, no matter what you decide to do. When ready to accomplish your Central Coast real estate market goals this coming fall, contact me, your Central Coast real estate agent! I am here and ready to guide you through the buying or selling process, or both! There is no better time to accomplish your real estate goals than now.

Seller has already received HOA approval to remove several trees on the lot in order to open up the water views.

Make the Most of Your Time at Lake Nacimiento

Lake Nacimiento Activities

Spend quality time at Lake Nacimiento

Whether you live on Lake Nacimiento permanently, you stay in a long-term or vacation rental, you visit for a weekend of camping or glamping, or you visit for a day trip, make the most of your time at the lake! Summer is quickly coming to a close, so as your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am here to offer you some tips on how to increase the quality of your lake time.

I recently came across a blog post from Mommy Has a Story about a couple who spent their wedding anniversary at Lake Nacimiento. Her tips were offered for how to have a romantic lake getaway, but most of them hold true for anyone looking to spend quality time at the lake!

Take a page out of her rulebook:

1.  Go cell phone and Wi-Fi free. Whether you’re here for a short trip or a permanent stay, it’s a great reminder not to spend all of your lake time on your phone. Take a few pictures, then put the phone away. This will force you to talk and interact with each other, which could result in better memories!

2.  Bring music. Music is always a great way to amp up the energy and make the atmosphere fun! Bring a portable CD player, or load up songs on your smartphone and bring portable Bluetooth speakers. The internet might not work on your phone, so plan ahead with a playlist!

3.  Go boating. If you spend time at Lake Nacimiento, you’ll want a boat! Whether you have your own, or you rent one, be sure to spend quality time on the water. It could be a speed boat, pontoon boat, fishing boat, kayak, paddle board, blowup tube, whatever you prefer. If it gets hot, jump into the water!

4.  Get out of your comfort zone. Do something that you normally don’t do at Lake Naci. If you usually cruise around on a pontoon boat, consider trying your luck at some water sports off a speed boat. Jump off some of the cliffs around the lake. Rent a jet ski. Get your adrenaline pumping!

5.  Bring wine. Every occasion is better with some local Central Coast wine, am I right? Take some time to go wine tasting in the Paso Robles region and get to know the local wineries. Purchase a bottle or two of your favorite wines and enjoy from your deck or around a campfire.

Keep things interesting by trying some new activities at Lake Nacimiento before summer is up, and make sure the time you spend with loved ones is quality time! If you’re interested in purchasing a Lake Nacimiento home, contact me. As a Lake Naci real estate agent, I am here to help you accomplish all of your buying and selling goals in the Central Coast real estate market!

Big News in Paso Robles Recently!

Paso Robles News

Latest Paso Robles, CA Highlights

As your Central Coast real estate agent, I pride myself on keeping you updated with the latest news and highlights taking place in the Central Coast region. There has been a lot of exciting news happening in Paso Robles! To help keep you up with the latest, I’ve summarized tidbits from some of the big news stories as of late:

1.  The 2017 Central Coast Wine Competition took place in late July at the California Mid-State Fair, and there were winners from every county in the Central Coast! Best in Show and Best Red Wine went to Broken Earth Winery’s 2015 Grenache. Best White Wine went to Eberle Winery’s 2016 Muscat Canelli. Best Pine Wine went to Kita Wines 2016 Grenache Rose. Best Sparkling Wine went to Laetitia Vineyard & Winery’s 2014 Brut Cuvee. Best Dessert Wine went to Glunz Family Winery’s Mission Angelica. Each of these also won a Gold Medal for Best in Class. You can view more of the winners here.

2.  Speaking of wine, Travel + Leisure named Ecluse Wines of Paso Robles a top 25 must-visit vineyard! This is a great spotlight for this boutique, family-owned winery on the Westside of Paso Robles. They were also awarded Best Red Wine for their 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon a few years back at the San Francisco Chronical Wine Competition, the largest competition of American wines. If you haven’t visited their tasting room or tried their wines, now is the time to keep them on the radar!

3.  Wine hasn’t been the only big news in Paso Robles. Food has been a recent highlight as well. Il Cortile Ristorante and La Cosecha Bar + Restaurant each received Wine Spectator’s 2017 Awards of Excellence! This marks the fourth consecutive win for Il Cortile, very impressive, and the first for La Cosecha, very exciting! They were awarded because of their outstanding food quality, exciting menus, elite service and eclectic and thoughtful wine lists. Next time you’re looking for a place to dine, check one of these out and congratulate them!

4.  Although not an award, it’s worth mentioning that Vina Robles Amphitheatre celebrated their 100th show a couple weeks back! They opened in 2013 and have hosted world-renowned artists in concert, such as Tony Bennett, Dolly Parton, Brian Wilson and many more. It was named Best Live Music Venue by New Times and was nominated for numerous other awards. If you haven’t been to a concert here in a while, or ever, it’s worth checking out!

Paso Robles is an amazing place to live, as is the entire Central Coast region! When ready to accomplish your Central Coast real estate market goals, as a buyer, seller or both, contact me. As a Central Coast real estate agent, I am here and ready to help you achieve your homeownership dreams in this amazing region of the world!

Local Businesses Highlighted in SLO County

SLO County

Best Businesses in SLO County

Do you have a list of favorite businesses to visit in San Luis Obispo County when you want coffee, ice cream, an adult beverage, dinner, breakfast and so on? Do you have a favorite beach or hike that you recommend to your friends, or that you keep secret to avoid crowds?

Thrillist made their own list of SLO County stops that they most recommend, and as your SLO County real estate agent, I am here to share some of them with you. See if any of your favorite local attractions made the list!

1.  For a summertime movie, head to Sunset Drive-In Theatre. Few drive-ins exist anymore, but this one only costs $8 for a double feature. Purchase some snacks, pack a picnic or order takeout. Then sit back and enjoy a couple of movies from your car or lawn chairs.

2.  For coffee, Scout Coffee Shop is most recommended, serving coffee, cookies and more. The California Cold Brew is suggested with Scout’s homemade almond milk, or the Honey Tea Bowl for tea drinkers.

3.  For tacos, stop by Papi’s Grill in Pismo Beach, which is a great, quick place to grab a bite while surfing or lounging on the beach. The halibut and shrimp tacos are recommended, with pico de gallo, shredded cabbage, beans and house-made tortillas.

4.  Soak in a hot mineral springs at Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort and Spa. Even if you don’t stay at the resort, you can still purchase a spa package or just spend time in a private hot springs.

5.  Old West Cinnamon Rolls is the place to go for breakfast. Choose from eight different takes on cinnamon rolls, from frosted and raisin, to almond or pecan. Steaming Bean Coffee and Tea Company is nearby and complements these cinnamon rolls well.

6.  Central Coast Brewing is the place to stop for a pint. The beers are always changing and there are plenty of options. Try tasting-sized servings, fill a growler, sip on the patio, grab cans to go… lots of options.

7.  Wolff Vineyards is Thrillist’s wine choice, as it is conveniently located just minutes from Downtown SLO. Enjoy $10 tastings, beautiful scenery and award-winning wines. Grab food at Mint + Craft on your way.

8.  Madonna Mountain is recommended for day hiking, as there are trails for beginners and pros, short and long. Lemon Grove Loop is a fast one if you are short on time.

9.  Pismo Beach is the beach of choice, with ATV rentals, kayaks, dive tours and surfing for high-energy folk, and plenty of warm sand for relaxed sunbathers. Hydrate with a smoothie from Virtjuice.

View all of Thrillist’s SLO County recommendations. Did your favorite business make the list? Leave a comment and share! If not, give a shout out to your favorite local business and share why they are your go-to.

Enjoy the rest of your summer on the Central Coast, and when ready to accomplish your Central Coast real estate market goals, contact me! As a Central Coast real estate agent, I am only a phone call away!
