We’ve hardly digested our Thanksgiving dinner, but the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is already upon us… are you ready? This year, ditch the long lines at big box stores and choose to support local and small businesses on the Central Coast as you begin your gift shopping.
California’s central coast is a hidden gem, situated perfectly between the big city meccas of Los Angeles (to the south) and San Francisco (to the north). Full of small-town charm, the central coast is home to some of the state’s most beautiful beaches, most highly sought-after wine, unique coastal towns—and plenty of reasons to be grateful this Thanksgiving season.
October is the time for all things pumpkin! With a pumpkin patch in nearly every city and town within the county lines, California’s Central Coast is a pumpkin-lover’s paradise. Check out our guide to the best pumpkin patches around for a day of family fun!
The calendar is full of made-up holidays like National Relaxation Day, National Lighthouse Day, National Ice Cream Day… the list goes on and on. While we usually have a chuckle about these “holidays” and then move on with business as usual, there are a few that we can’t resist celebrating—National Tequila Day is one of those.
With red tinted sunsets, white sandy beaches, and the deep blue ocean, the Central Coast is a patriotic place to be this Fourth of July. If you’re coming in to visit for this fun packed weekend, don’t miss out on the festivities, and follow these insiders tips to make sure you have a fun, exciting, and safe Fourth of July, whatever you feel like doing!
