      The night tour was really nice, they actually had some volunteer actors dress up in period clothing to make things more realistic. The mansion is huge with massive living and dining rooms, but the the ... read more
      pools are probably the most impressive part of the whole tour. Golden tiles in the pool, 'nuff said.

      Not too far from Morro Bay is this attraction, I'd recommend the night tour.

      Fresh seafood right on the beach! Great food for very decent prices, the fish and chips are excellent, and the view is spectacular around sunset. The only bad thing is they close pretty early, at 6pm, ... read more
      so get there early for dinner.

      An amazing place to see California's largest elephant seal colony, some 18,000 animals strong during the winter breeding and mating season. The best vista point is just over 4 miles north of Hearst ... read more

      How often can you find a state park with no entrance fee that's full of opportunities for hiking without too many crowds? You can also bring along a mountain bike and go pedaling around the coastal ... read more
      bluffs. But for killers views and a long, satisfying day hike, tackle the loop of windy Valencia and Oat Peaks. Warning: It's not for anyone with a fear of heights, and bring shoes with good gription for the volcanic scree on the trails.

      What, you say you've only got time for 1 hike in SLO? And you don't want to drive all the way out to Montana de Oro State Park? Then find the trailhead for Bishop Peak, the tallest of the Nine Sisters ... read more
      chain of volcanic rocks along this section of California's Central Coast. Don't worry: it's less than 1600ft at the summit. But, oh the views of rolling pastureland are a knock-out, especially at sunset. Total trail distance depends on exactly where you start from, but it's usually just over 2 miles each way.

      Just inland from Morro Bay along twisty Hwy 41, this hiking trail leads from a USFS campground (start at the end of the access road by the trailhead sign) to a small summit (2600ft elevation ... read more
      approximately). Standing on top, you'll see the Pacific Ocean and the undulating golden hillsides of Paso Robles wine country. The last stretch of trail is mostly unshaded and bakes during summer (over 90 degrees) so hike in the late afternoon or early morning during summer.
