Ways to Get Outside This Fall

Sand Art

The beach isn’t just for lounging on the sand while sunbathing or cooling off in the ocean! You can enjoy views of the Pacific and utilize the gorgeous beaches of the Central Coast even when the weather is cooling down by creating some sand art. Sand art is a great way to spend the day with the family at the beach working together on a fun project.

Pumpkin or Apple Picking

Fall on the Central Coast brings some of our most favorite events, like harvest season! Harvest season is an extremely special time here, and we love to utilize the delicious crops with activities like pumpkin or apple picking. This is the perfect option for relishing in the autumn sunshine and appreciating those fall colors. Some of our favorite spots for pumpkin and apple picking are Avila Valley Barn, SLO Creek Farms, and Brookshire Farms. You can get even more into the fall season spirit by baking a pumpkin or apple pie with your hand-picked produce!
