Valentine’s Day is a special time everywhere in the world, but here on the Central Coast, we like to celebrate with more than just a dinner or a night out! We are lucky to be home to tons of different activities, like hiking, dining, and outdoor adventures. If you’ll be visiting the Central Coast this Valentine’s Day, try out these ways we celebrate! Even if you won’t be here in San Luis Obispo County for Cupid’s favorite holiday, customize these above average suggestions to match your city, and live like a true Central Coaster!
Enjoy the Natural Beauty
The Central Coast is known for its beautiful landscapes, from wine country to the beaches. Many of these beautiful views can be seen from the top of hiking summits or out on a back road. Switch up the normal Valentine’s Day routine by enjoying the sunshine with your loved one. Try one of the numerous hiking trails, like Bishop Peak or Ontario Ridge, to spend some quality time together and even catch a gorgeous sunset. Hiking isn’t the only way to soak up the natural beauty though, as the Central Coast is home to many other ways to enjoy the outdoors. Try out a biking trail or even plan a day out on the waters with a kayaking or boat tour!
Get Your Heart Racing!
The Central Coast is no stranger to an adrenaline rush! From ATVing in the Oceano Dunes to horseback riding on the shores of Pismo Beach, you won’t be disappointed with this kind of Valentine’s Day! We can guarantee it will be a day to remember when you try something new, opting for something different than another dinner out. If you’re really looking to spice things up, have the experience of a lifetime with Pismo Skydive! The views from that vantage point are the best on the Central Coast!
Not all old traditions are meant to be thrown out! Even a classic Valentine’s Day can bring the romance you’re looking for.
