Work Hard Play Harder: Making the Most of Your Central Coast Business Trip
“Where are you going for work this week?”
“I’m headed up north, somewhere on the central coast.”
“Well, I’ll be stuck in meetings most of the week.”
Let’s stop the conversation there. Business trips don’t have to be all work and no play—especially on the Central Coast! Sure, the work has to get done, but there can be a little play in there too. Take advantage of your free afternoon, your post conference evening, or even make the setting memorable for that dinner meeting! We’re here to tell you how you can work hard and play harder—and incorporate a little bit of fun into your work trip.
Start the day right: workout
Do you need a great way to wake up before your day of meetings? Nothing loosens you up like a good workout! Our very own Inn at the Cove even offers Oceanfront Yoga. But if yoga isn’t your thing, visit the gym at the Shore Cliff Hotel, play a game of tennis at Pismo Lighthouse Suites, or take advantage of a free trial membership at GIVE Fitness in Atascadero.
Business meeting? Take it to the golf course
Who said that day long business meeting couldn’t be taken care of over a friendly round of golf? The Central Coast is home to some of California’s most beautiful courses. Places like Monarch Dunes, Cypress Ridge, and Pismo Beach GC are just minutes from our Pismo area resorts! Book your stay today, and give your course of a choice a call to book your tee time.
Need a break? Take a walk
We all need a brain break every once in a while. Whether you’re free for ten minutes, or two hours, a walk on the beach can never hurt! If the sandy shores aren’t for you, consider the SLO Botanical Gardens or Monarch Butterfly Grove in Pismo for your afternoon stroll.
Dinner meeting? Dine in style
It’s not uncommon for business to be handled over a meal. Why not make that meal memorable? The Central Coast is full unbeatable eateries. Dine in style at some of our favorite restaurants like Old Custom House in Avila or Oyster Loft in Pismo—and if you find yourself in Paso Robles, check out our very own Steakhouse at The Paso Robles Inn.
Need to relax? Unwind with an in-room spa treatment
Unwind after a long day with a massage—Central Coast style! We’re proud to offer in-room spa treatments at three of our five resorts: Avila Lighthouse Suites, Inn at the Cove, and Shore Cliff Hotel. Nothing says relaxation like a spa treatment, and you don’t even have to leave your room!
Enjoy A Night Out!
Your days may be full of meetings and seminars but your evenings hold endless possibilities! After a day of hard work it’s time to treat yourself. Enjoy a wine tasting at an area winery or take advantage of Happy Hour at Cattleman’s Lounge at the Paso Robles Inn (extended hours on Wednesdays).
