Ways to Enjoy the Central Coast on a Rainy Day

Way to Enjoy a Rainy Day on the Central CoastRain in California? Impossible! Or so the rumors would have you believe. If you’re new to the West Coast you may have fallen prey to this common misconception. The truth is it does in fact rain, approximately 19 inches of it annually to be precise. What’s more important to know is that even in the rain there are still plenty of ways to enjoy the Central Coast! Despite our recent drought, we’ve been told that the rainy season is still coming and we’re anxiously awaiting it! When it does arrive, here are some thoughts to brighten a rainy day!

Play Inside

  • Test your bowling skills at the Paso Bowl, Mustang Lanes or Pismo Beach Bowl.
  • Get your heart pumping at SLO Op, a 4,500 sq. ft. warehouse of climbing wall space.
  • Bust out the board and dice games during TOT Night at Mother’s Tavern. Bonus, it’s exactly what it sounds like – a night chock full of $2.00 tater tots!

Catch a Show

Play in the Rain

  • Strap on your rain boots and head out to Morro Bay for some kayaking.
  • Cruise damp Cambria beaches in search of Moonstones.
  • Explore your wild side on a hike through Harmony Headlands.

Get Artsy

  • Find your inner Picasso at Art Bar in San Luis Obispo. Cocktails, paint brushes, and friends. What could be better on an otherwise bleak and rainy day?

Taste Some Grapes

  • Every day is a great day for wine tasting! Leave the driving to someone else and safely enjoy a day of sipping with Break-Away Tours!

San Luis Obispo: America’s Happiest City

Prudential California Realty is Central Coast’s Real Estate experts. Our first priority is you – always. It is our goal to provide you with the most innovative real estate services on the Central Coast.

Two weeks ago we helped you make the most out of San Luis Obispo County. Between miscellaneous events, numerous wineries and vineyards, delicious restaurants and fun for kids, the list was hard to make.

But what else makes San Luis Obispo the place to be? There is a reason people want to be here. Before we tell you why this area is so desirable, we must say that when we tell you, we aren’t lying.

San Luis Obispo is America’s happiest city.

Location, location, location is still the rule that applies to real estate and if Americans really just want to be happy at the end of the day, it is a wonder that the San Luis Obispo’s town population is low enough to keep that small town feel that helps give it its charm and wonder.

This past January, San Luis Obispo was featured on Oprah’s website where Oprah Show correspondent, Jenny McCarthy, came by to visit. During her visit, she found our charming streets and friendly faces to be just some of the elements that make up America’s happiest city.

As she explored the town meeting our residents and seeing our beautiful sights, she discovered a lot from miles of hiking and biking trails to pedestrian friendly streets with wide sidewalks.

The health aspect of the San Luis Obispo speaks more: In 1990, it became one of the first cities in the world to ban public smoking. Additionally, no fast food drive-thrus are allowed. Why else are our town’s residents so happy? Almost 25% of our resident’s are happy because they work for themselves.

The small town feeling has rewarding benefits for the 45,000 residents who tend to be very social, open-minded, happy people. From a healthy economy and healthy residents to to fun and activities for everyone, in San Luis Obispo, we know how to keep ourselves happy. Who wouldn’t want to live here?

Making the Most of San Luis Obispo County

Prudential California Realty is Central Coast’s Real Estate experts. Our first priority is you – always. It is our goal to provide you with the most innovative real estate services on the Central Coast.

Whether you live in San Luis Obispo County, are moving here, or simply coming in for a short business / pleasure trip, you are going to need something to do. For visitors, what usually happens is they will ask the front desk clerk or  a local they pass on the street, “What is there to around here?”

The local may reply, “You know….I’m not too sure.”

Unless you live in a major city like New York or Chicago, renowned to have an extensive list of fine dining and entertainment, than it can sometimes be easy to forget about what your area of the world has to offer. Let’s face it: after a hard work week, most of us would really love to go out to a nice dinner and cut up the dance floor, but sometimes we take for granted some of the great things our community has.

As experts in this area of the country, we believe San Obispo County offers its residents and visitors a great deal to be proud of in the way of enjoyments, but we aren’t the only ones. We got excited just looking at this top 10 list for the county and decided our thoughts on some favorites:


Naturally, we will start with food. We came across this great article that proclaims, “In San Luis Obispo County, there’s no shortage of options to satisfy your appetite.” After looking at the list, we have to agree. San Luis Obispo County has numerous restaurants to satisfy anyone’s taste buds.

  • Our favorite? Thai Talay. Why? Between the restaurant’s beautiful atmosphere, delicious food and food presentation, we have never been disappointed.

Miscellaneous Events

Looking for a list of what’s happening this weekend? Head over here for a comprehensive calendar to help you plan something exciting. The calendar includes everything from concerts to comedy shows to festivals.

  • Our favorite? Honestly, this list is so extensive we couldn’t pick one.


If you are going to make a list of things to do, you have to include a section for children. The added element of children can prove difficult for any parent looking for something to do that will make everyone happy. That is why we found this list of 353 things you can do with kids.


With over 200 wineries and vineyards in San Luis Obispo County, this is a category we had to tell you about. Depending on how much you like your wine, this might be one to save for another occasion, but we also think you can’t visit or live in San Luis Obispo County without visiting a winery or vineyard. The toughest part will be figuring out which one to visit first.

  • Our favorite? Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards Why? This lovely family owned and operated vineyard is on a country road filled with oak trees and wild flowers. The staff treats us like we are a member of their family. Oh, and the wine is amazing too!

We are quite confident that with this list, you will be able to carve out an entire weekend of things to do. Business meeting, vacation, romantic night away? It doesn’t matter. Prudential California Realty doesn’t just sell homes, we also help you enjoy your time inside them and outside of them.
