Beach Day
Though it might be a few more months until summer heat drives everyone to the coast, spring is an incredible time to visit the beaches. Pack a picnic and enjoy the dramatic coastline Central California offers. Try Moonstone Beach and enjoy a quieter version of Pismo Beach, check out the tide pools and watch the sun go down.

Go for a Hike
San Luis Obispo is known for its incredible hikes, and spring brings the best time to enjoy the hikes in SLO county. Green hills stretch to the coast, and there are many trails to take advantage of. Bishop Peak offers hikers views of the surrounding area, and a great way to escape for the day. This hike is one of the more popular ones, and for good reason. The trail goes to the 1,559-foot summit, and is about 3.5 miles round trip.

Visit Morro Bay
Escape to the coast and visit the sleepy beach town Morro Bay. Morro Bay is home to the famous Morro Rock, which is the last in the line of Nine Sisters (chain of nine volcanic peaks starting in San Luis Obispo). Spend the day in Morro Bay and dine at one of the delicious oceanfront restaurants.
