Drive (or be driven) along the Central Coast
We think the best way to travel to Paso Robles and to see all that San Luis Obispo County has to offer along the way is by car. You will see our many oak trees, rolling hills with vineyards, and coastal beaches up close. Traveling by car also allows you to stop along the many tourist attractions along the US 101 or the scenic California Highway 1.
