It's summer all year long here and the climate is uniquely Mediterranean, with cool ocean breezes, gently changing weather and perfect soil for the cultivation of popular wine varieties. This land that once welcomed cowboys and Spanish missionaries now lures wine and culinary enthusiasts as well as couples on romantic holidays.
Join the many visitors who come here every year to hike the trails to scenic pastoral overlooks, take carriage tours through the vineyards, and go shopping in the quaint historic areas of downtown Paso Robles. This area makes a perfect family vacation destination with its pristine beaches and family friendly museums. No matter what you're looking for in a California vacation, you'll find it in Paso Robles.
