Imagine driving through the breathtaking coastal region of San Luis Obispo County along CA’s Highway 1 Discovery Route. The sparkling Pacific Ocean sits on one side, lush farmlands and grazing cattle on the other as you smell the salty sea air. You see a winery and stop in for an afternoon of wine tasting and laughter. From there, you cruise gently past the white sandy beaches until you check-in to the fabulous hotel, B&B or vacation rental of your choice located in one of the 10 quaint destinations that line the route. Then off to a notable farm to table restaurant and after an amazing dining experience head to one of the area’s craft beer breweries for a nightcap and music. Before you know it, you feel like a local. And, at the end of the day, you realize the artisan food, wine & beer scene in this spectacular region is as cool as it is endless and, well, you need to stay a few more days.
