Winter Getaway 2016 to San Luis Obispo County
People say that California has it all. Perhaps there’’s no truer representation of that than San Luis Obispo County. From the dramatic coastline to the green hills, seaside villages, and two world- class wine regions, San Luis Obispo County is all that’’s good about California!
Wine, Beer, and Moonshine Cheer: With over 280 wineries split between Paso Robles and Edna Valley, there’’s no shortage of vintages and fresh points of view! Fear not, beer brethren, San Luis Obispo County made CraftBeers.com’s list for America’’s Beeriest Beach Towns. Find more than a dozen micro-breweries pouring IPAs, porters, sours, and ciders. If grappa and moonshine appeal, visit one of the many new distilleries in the county.
Morros, Beaches, Biking, Hiking: San Luis Obispo County is an outdoor dreamscape in winter. Ancient volcanic mountains (morros) top out to epic coastal views, and secluded bluffside hiking trails bring solitude and the drama of the sea like nowhere else in the state.

Find your perfect itinerary.
