Paso Robles is a wonderful destination in the wine country of Central California. After touring wineries and tasting the diverse wine varieties that Paso Robles has to offer, you might want to head to the coast to watch the sun set. Luckily there are many beach towns not far from Paso Robles.

Cambria, Cayucos, and Morro Bay are all just over 30 minutes away. The drive to Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, and San Simeon isn’t much longer. All six of these friendly towns are along the San Luis Obispo County shore.
