1. “Gone with the wine” by @stargirl420

What We Love:  Of course we always appreciate a good wine pun—but there’s nothing like tasting fine Paso Robles wine while drinking in some of the best views wine country has to offer at Daou Vineyards. We can totally relate to this #mood. Love Daou Vineyards too? Stay in their winery themed deluxe spa room at the Paso Robles Inn during your next visit.

2. “We enjoy lazy Sunday strolls as the sun sets over the beach” by @gizmoandzeus

What We Love: The Inn at the Cove is the dreamiest location for your next dog walk! Gizmo and Zeus look like they’re loving our oceanfront paved walkway during their sunset walk and we can’t help but wish we were there. Feel the same way? Book a dog-friendly room at this oceanfront Pismo Beach hotel now.

3. “A room with a view” by @sylviaswindow

What We Love: First of all, this photo and username combination works together almost too perfectly. Looking out Sylvia’s Window, we can see the Pismo Beach pier and miles of endless coastline from her “room with a view” at Shore Cliff Hotel. Shore Cliff Hotel prides itself on being spectacular from every point of view, so no matter what room you choose, you’re guaranteed stunning vistas from the moment you wake up. Explore your options here and book a stay today.

4. “I asked Liam a month ago if he wanted to have a party for his birthday or spend the night at the beach. It was a very emphatic “beach!” So we spent a few nights at our favorite place #avilabeach. We parked it up, played on the beach, braved the pier, and even swam in 70-degree weather (so NOT my idea 🙀). I think it’s safe to say he thoroughly enjoyed his birthday weekend.” by @olive_familyof4

What We Love: We so appreciate being a part of your family moments, big or small, and we thank little Liam for sharing his special day with us over at the family-friendly Avila Lighthouse Suites. It’s not very often you hear of a kid giving up a birthday party for a relaxing beach retreat, but who can blame him? We must say—he’s wise beyond his years.

And the winner is… “no filter needed” by @hellokittycat_68

What We Love: It doesn’t get more iconic Pismo Beach than this. With a dreamy pink Pismo Beach sunset sinking over the Shore Cliff Hotel gazebo, there’s certainly “no filter needed.”

Now to our favorite part—as our winner, @hellokittycat_68 will enjoy a FREE 1-night stay at the Martin Resorts property of her choosing. Congratulations! Keep on #CentralCoasting 🌊
