Fall is finally in full swing on the Central Coast, and you know what that means—it’s time to watch some football! Whether you enjoy attending games under the Friday night lights at local schools, clicking on the TV from the comfort of your own hotel room, or grabbing some grub and a couple of beers with friends at a bar, there’s plenty of opportunities here on the Central Coast for you to cheer on your favorite team.
Back in the day, Pismo Beach was called the “Clam Capital of the World.” There’s even a type of clam named after the town, called the Pismo. Many residents in the 40’s and 50’s were filled with enthusiasm and excitement about the abundance of clams found in Pismo Beach, and created its most famous festival – the Pismo Beach Clam Festival – in 1946.

It’s no secret that Paso Robles, California and the greater Central Coast area have become a nationally-acclaimed destination for foodies and winos alike.

Isn’t it amazing that we have a designated day just for one of the most easy-to-love activities: relaxing? This August 15th is National Relaxation Day across the US.
