Re: Central Coast Beach with a one-year-old
I stayed at the Inn at Avila Beach on business and loved it!
It's a pink 3 or 4 storey building right on the beach. The beach
looks splendid (unfortunately, I didn't get to spend to much
time there) and cost of the rooms is reasonable, considering the
location. The decor of the rooms is very eclectic, but still
quite comfortable. Avila Beach isn't right on Hwy 1 or 101, but
not too far out of the way, either. There are a couple of
decent restaurants there and at the harbor. I also seem to
recall that the motel has laundry facilities...
Anyway, have a fun trip. The central coast is lovely!
I don't have info on places to stay for you, but I was just in
San Luis Obispo for the weekend and discovered a fantastic beach
with my 3-and a half year old. It is called Avila Beach and is
about 10 minutes drive south of SLO. The sand is soft, there is
a pirate-themed playground, a great pier to walk down (go all
the way to the end to see starfish and other critters), and
restaurants (which we didn't try). Apparently there had been oil
leakage many years ago and in recent years they have completely
cleaned it up. The water was only a little warmer than up here
in Bay Area but the weather is so hot it was refreshing.
