I’m so excited that it’s finally starting to feel a bit like Fall in San Luis Obispo County! I’m looking forward to crisp air, bundling up, and pumpkin everything! Most of all, I’m excited for an October and November full of family-friendly adventures and events on the Central Coast. Here are some of our favorites:
Family Adventures this fall!
From pumpkin farms to butterflies, this fall won't disappoint! Add some (or all) of these activities to your Fall bucket list and let me know which are your favorite!
Visit Pumpkin Farms
Fall isn't complete without a trip to the pumpkin patch!
Visit Apples Farms!
There are lots of apple farms to visit on the Central Coast. Head to SLO Creek Farms or Avila Valley Barn to pick your own or taste and bag your favorites at Gopher Glen, Creekside Apple Farm, and/or See Canyon Fruit Ranch! Read my blog post about apple picking in SLO County.
Visit the Scarecrows in Cambria and San Simeon
Stroll through Cambria and San Simeon to see the hundreds of whimsical scarecrows on display throughout the month of October. The theme for this year's Cambria Scarecrow Festival is “Where Whimpsy Runs Rampant." Use your smart phone or tablet to scan the QR code on each scarecrow to learn about it, track your favorite scarecrows, and rate them.
.Visit the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden!
Fall is beautiful at the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden! Visit the Children’s Garden, a fun and safe place for kiddos to learn, explore, and grow.
Enjoy a Fun and Safe Halloween!
Visit the Monarch Butterflies in Pismo Beach
Thousands of vibrant orange and black Monarch Butterflies flock to Pismo Beach each year from October to February, seeking shelter from the freezing northern winters. You can see them clustered in the limbs of a grove of Eucalyptus trees at Pismo State Beach. Visit the Monarch Butterfly Grove anytime, but be sure to head over on Nov. 4 for a special event, "A Brush with the Butterflies" to kick off the 2017-18 season. The grove opens for the season on Saturday, Oct. 28.
