Beach Bum on Central Coast

Sorry that I’ve been absent for the last week-plus from the blog-o-sphere. My family and I took a much needed vacation down to the Central Coast and spent a week at Pismo Beach. It was our first big road trip with the baby and needless to say we had a great time.

If you’ve never been to Pismo Beach or the San Luis Obispo region of the Central Coast, I strongly urge you to take some time off and head down there. The weather is great, living expenses are cheap, and the people are some of the friendliest I’ve ever met. The “SLO” life as it’s called is a great way to chill, relax, and forget about the stresses of everyday life.

So where do you like to vacation when you need to decompress? Any favorite haunts where you go to reinvigorate yourself? How do you prefer to get away from it all?


  1. What a fun time! I've never been there, but I'd like to see it someday. We spend a lot of time at our local beaches, but they're not sandy or warm like they are there.

  2. Hope your little guy didn't sleep through all of it.
    I like to hit the mountains. Although sometimes just anywhere but here works.
    Glad your family had a good time!

  3. My dream vacation would be going home - to Santa Barbara! So, I'm familiar with the area you spent your vacation. It's soooo beautiful there.

  4. I've not ever been north of Los Angeles. I usually hang out around San Diego when I go to California. And I'm heading to Victoria BC in a week or so. Hoping to decompress there for a few days.
