Central Coast Activities

From Monterey Bay to northwest of LA, the California Central Coast is a breathtaking destination with miles of pristine beaches and bays, spectacular state parks, beautiful vineyards, historic missions and endless outdoor adventures. Hike the shoreline trails at Point Mugu State Park, explore the rugged coastline of Big Sur, tour Hearst Castle, shop  at Cannery Row in Monterey, tee off on Pebble Beach,  ride the Giant Dipper on the Santa Cruz Boardwalk or relax on the white sands of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Wine lovers will discover heaven - from the valleys to the mountains - at the wineries of Paso Robles, Monterey, Livermore and Santa Barbara.
