Central Coast Life

Living near one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines, you learn to staycation.

And why wouldn’t you? California’s Central Coast is hundreds of miles of winding coastal roads, Pacific sunsets, national and state parks, family-owned wineries, sleepy beach towns, and vibrant urban cities – the quintessential road trip. Just north in the San Luis Obispo region is an eclectic mix of coastal wineries and low-key beach towns. South of home is the American Riviera, a nickname drawn from the Mediterranean architecture and dramatic mountain backdrop of the Santa Barbara region. And everywhere in between are sights and experiences you won’t want to miss. From the wineries to the festivals to the big-city amenities – renowned universities, theatre, arts, and the list goes on - all set against rolling hills and open space, the Central Coast is something special. There’s so much to do here, and so much breathing room for it all. When you call the Central Coast home, you could staycation every weekend and never run out of fresh new experiences.
