5 More Rainy Day Activities in Central California!

Central California Activities

Rainy Day Activities in Central California

Back when the rains first started here in Central California, I put together a list of rainy day activities to enjoy in Central California. Since the rains continue to fall, I’ve decided that maybe sharing that list was good luck! So, as your Central California real estate agent, I’d like to share more activities for you enjoy while it’s raining in the area. Although there are tons of things to do outdoors, there are plenty to enjoy indoors as well.

1.  Explore new businesses. Do you always shop or dine at the same businesses in your Central California town? Branch out and stop into a new business! Mistura, a Peruvian restaurant, just opened in Paso Robles. Most of the produce, and all of the fish and meats, come from local sources. Popular dishes include ceviche, sea bass and gelato. Check it out!

2.  Create an artistic masterpiece. Find your inner artist at Art Bar SLO. There you will receive step-by-step instructions by local artists on how to paint. Choose a painting you like from the website, and then learn how to paint it on the scheduled day. Your first glass of wine is complimentary and more drinks and appetizers are available to purchase. This could make a great holiday gift!

3.  Play inside. There are plenty of ways to play and use up energy indoors. You could go bowling at Paso Bowl, Mustang Lanes or Pismo Beach Bowl. You could strengthen your arms and legs with 5,000 linear feet of climbing wall space at SLO Op. Or you could just go to your local gym and try a new workout class. Plenty of ways to stay active!

4.  Go wine tasting. Anyone who lives in Central California knows that every day is a good wine tasting day. Local vineyards have indoor tasting rooms, so as long as you don’t mind driving in some wet conditions, pay them a visit! There is something very calming about sipping on wine while watching the rain fall on the fields of Central California vineyards. Just be sure to have a designated driver.

5.  Get in the Christmas spirit at the Oak Shores Clubhouse! On Friday, enjoy the Christmas Lights Parade & Open House Social, where you’ll drive around the community and enjoy the neighbors’ lights. Saturday, enjoy a Meet & Greet with Santa, along with a potluck dinner, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, bring your pets over to the Clubhouse for photos with Santa from 11 a.m. to noon!

Enjoy and be grateful for the rain that Lake Nacimiento and Central California are receiving, continue to do your rain dances, and enjoy these indoor activities!

  • Look for Santa and Mrs. Claus in Morro Bay between Dec. 15 and 17 from 5 to 9 p.m. during the Caroling Cop Cars and Christmas Trolley Parade! The Morro Bay Neighborhood Watch Association and Police Department will escort the Claus couple on trolleys while caroling through Morro Bay neighborhoods.

Why to Spend the Holidays in SLO County!

SLO County Real Estate

SLO County for the Holidays

Do you travel for the holidays, or do you stay home in SLO County? As a Central California real estate agent, I love spending the holiday season in my hometown here in Central California!

I’m not alone, either. Nassau News Live just recently shared 10 reasons to spend the holidays in SLO County on California’s Central Coast. Here’s a summary of some of their reasons:

  • SLO County is exactly how it sounds. Slow. Communities here rank among the happiest in America. Paso Robles was just named one of America’s favorite towns. Life unfolds at a slower, more peaceful pace here in Central California. Located between California’s large cities, here, it’s all about wine trails, spectacular views, small-town community activities, fine dining and more. It’s off the grid, but still right along California’s Highway 1. It’s great for reconnecting with family and friends during the holidays, away from the city bustle.
  • SLO County is one-of-a-kind. There is truly nowhere else in the country that compares to Central California. We’ve got Hearst Castle, which is a main attraction year-round, but it’s a wondrous sight the entire month of December. Every single hall is lavishly decorated for the holidays. Holiday performances take place, including a one-act version of A Christmas Carol. A musical celebration will take place Dec. 12. If you’ve never visited Hearst Castle during the holidays, consider it this year!
  • SLO County has plenty to do. Just because the pace is slower here doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do for the holidays besides a visit to Hearst Castle. Every town in Central California hosts some sort of holiday festivity. You can catch a theatrical performance, like The Nutcracker at San Luis Obispo Performing Arts Center, or A Christmas Story at SLO Little Theatre. There are also a slew of parades, tree lighting ceremonies, Santa sightings, old-fashioned celebrations and more.
  • SLO County is active. Since the weather is beautiful year-round here in Central California, you don’t have to hide out inside to celebrate the holidays. Central California has its Reindeer Run 5k Run/Walk at Mitchell Park, where runners can wear holiday costumes and enjoy pancakes with Santa. You can ice skate under the warm California sun at Madonna Inn from Dec. 19 to Jan. 4. You can also ice skate, and play in 50 tons of fresh snow, in Downtown Atascadero on Dec. 12!

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to spend your holiday season here in SLO County. Slow down, spend quality time with your friends or family, and enjoy old-fashioned fun. If you need help buying a vacation home, or help achieving any of your real estate goals in the Central California real estate market this fall or winter, contact me, your Central California real estate agent!

Winter Nature Activities in Central California

Central California Nature Activities

Central California Nature

Here in Central California, we are blessed with good weather for the majority of the year. While temperatures do drop in the winter, there are still plenty of good-weathered days to head outdoors and into nature. And here in Central California, we’ve got tons of nature for you to surround yourself with!

As your Central California real estate agent, I’ve put together a list of activities you can enjoy here in Central California year-round.

Hiking

Hiking is a great activity in all seasons, because no matter what the temperature is, you can always just add or remove layers. There are so many hiking trails to choose from in Central California, it’d be impossible to name them all.

Lake Nacimiento has over 100 miles designated for hiking, complete with pine and oak groves, along with 165 miles of shoreline. For more great hiking trails in Central California, check out this list of 15 awesome winter hiking trails along Highway 1, from WineCoastCountry.com!

Horseback Riding

If you’d rather sit back and enjoy Central California’s scenic trails, consider going for a horseback riding trip instead. Madonna Inn Trail Rides in San Luis Obispo offers trail riding on gentle and friendly horses, suitable for anyone. You could do a simple one-hour ride for scenic views, or you could do a ride and taste package that includes wine and cheese tasting!

Hot Mineral Springs

What better time to crawl into a hot mineral springs than in the cooler months here in Central California? These naturally occurring hot springs offer health benefits and relaxation. Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa in Avila Beach offers hillside tubs for anyone to rent by the hour. You could also combine your soak with a massage at their spa.

Go all out and stay overnight! Make a staycation out of it. The rooms at Sycamore Springs include private mineral springs soaking tubs. Paso Robles Inn also offers hot mineral springs tubs with their rooms and is conveniently located so you can enjoy all that Paso Robles has to offer.

Golf

Fall and winter are excellent seasons for golfing in Central California! The courses aren’t as crowded, and the weather is perfect. Hunter Ranch Golf Course in Paso Robles is a pristine, world-class course with small-town charm. It’s a hidden gem, but Golf Digest rated it with four and a half stars out of five. The wine country scenery is fantastic! Avila Beach Golf Resort is another popular golf destination in the area, with gorgeous views of the ocean, beach and pier.

Enjoy fall and winter here in the Central California by enjoying the cooler weather outdoors! When ready to buy a Central California home, or ready to sell your Central California home, contact me, your Central California real estate agent! I’m here for you!

Paso Robles Pioneer Day This Weekend!

Paso Robles Events

2014 Paso Robles Pioneer Day

Every year, Paso Robles hosts the beloved Pioneer Day, which is an entire day of fun for the whole family. This year, Pioneer Day takes place Saturday, Oct. 11. As your Central California real estate agent, I’d like to fill you in on the schedule for this event so you don’t miss a beat!

If you’re an early bird, head out early on Saturday for the Bean Feed Preparation at Paso Robles City Park at 7 a.m., the Antique Classic Car Judging at King Oil Tools at 7:30 a.m., the Children’s Pet Show for kids 12 and under at the Paso Robles City Park Gazebo at 8 a.m., and the Little Cowboy/Cowgirl Contest at 8:30 a.m. at the Park Gazebo. Entry forms for these contests can be found on the event website.

The main event of the day is the Pioneer Day Parade, which begins promptly at 10 a.m. at 17th and Spring Street. It continues and ends around City Park, so there are plenty of good viewing areas! Get downtown early to scope out a spot, and bring lawn chairs or a blanket if you don’t want to stand.

During the parade, you’ll see plenty of antique tractors, horse-drawn wagons, marching bands, mounted equestrian groups, youth groups, church groups, civic groups, creative floats, vintage cars, fire engines, military vehicles and more. It is definitely not a parade you want to miss!

After the parade, the day continues with special 125th anniversary features! The theme this year is Old Fashioned Funfair, which features a street dance, a beer garden, a bake-off for amateurs and professionals, and old-fashioned games for kids, such as a cake walk and tug of war.

The Free Bean Feed at Paso Robles City Park begins at noon, and Carnegie Library & Historical Museum opens at noon. Beginning at 1 p.m., there will be a horseshoe pitching contest, an old gas engine show, and a band concert.

The Pioneer Museum also opens at 1 p.m. One of the highlights of Pioneer Day is all of the antique tractors, wagons and steam engines that come out for the event. You can view over 70 tractors and wagons on display! There will also be Dutch Oven Cookin’ and a Mule Packing Demonstration.

Pioneer Day started in Paso Robles in 1931. It was organized by community volunteers. Every business closed for the day, and nothing cost money at the event. It was all about bringing together the community to say thanks for supporting local business and the town as a whole. To this day, the event is still free of charge, and it’s still a fun, authentic way to bring the community together!

Enjoy the festivities in Paso Robles this weekend, and when you’re ready to accomplish you real estate goals in the Central California real estate market this fall, contact me, your Central California real estate agent!
