Grover Beach Hotels and Pictures

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Friday, May 24, 2019, In : Beaches 

Grover Beach is part of Pismo State Beach (all part of San Luis Obispo county) but a much smaller beach, compared to Pismo Beach. There's only a couple of hotels in Grover Beach so our best suggestion is to stay at a hotel in Pismo Beach and just be a few minutes drive away from it. Walking Entry to Grover Beach is almost like a secret. Grover Beach has a dunes portion where you drive on the beach with your vehicle (for a fee), or you can walk on the non-vehicle side and park (no fee) behind ...

Avila Beach is located in San Luis Obispo County on the Central Coast of California. It's a small beach town with a pretty pier and a lot of character. With less than a handful hotels in the area, this makes it a quieter traveling spot but still very beautiful.

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Sunday, May 19, 2019, In : Santa Barbara 
Solvang is about an hour drive from San Luis Obispo and known as a wine country and wonderful Danish town in Santa Barbara County. As the biggest Danish town in California, you're going to feel like you just got dropped right in the middle of Europe! Here's a list of a handful of kid-friendly wineries/tasting rooms that we've personally went to with kids in tow.

Before and After with Chalk Paint

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, In : DIY 
Throwing away old furniture around here in SLO requires a bit more thought and money to do. Not only it actually costs money to go to a trash dump to throw a piece of furniture away (different than many places in the East Coast where it's free for residents to throw their own trash), but I'm starting to be against the wasteful habit of buying new stuff when you can reuse the old.

With many estate sales around here SLO, it's really easy for anyone to find something old, but still good quality,...

San Luis Obispo Library in Downtown SLO

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Sunday, May 12, 2019, In : For Kids 
When visiting the San Luis Obispo Library in downtown San Luis Obispo, you would either have to park along the street or park in a parking structure so be ready to have coins or money handy to pay for parking in downtown, even if you're just going to the library.

Unless you're within walking distance or using public transportation, you'll most likely have to pay to park. There are a few parking structures that allow you to park for the first hour for free but in my experience, I've never stay...

The Galley Seafood Grill in Morro Bay Review

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Friday, May 3, 2019, In : Restaurants 
We had a visitor in town and decided to take our special guest to Morro Bay to see the Morro Rock, sea otters, seals and have some lunch at The Galley Seafood Grill & Bar


It's the ideal place to take a visitor because it is right on the bay with views of all of the above: Morro Rock, sea otters, seals and more. We saw people kayaking while we were in our seats inside the restaurant. It's such a special experience. Moreover, their food is spot on with local classics such as clam chowder, fish a...
