MOXI in Santa Barbara, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Sunday, March 20, 2022, In : Santa Barbara 
Lucky for us, Santa Barbara is only an hour and fifteen minute drive south from our area as it's only the next county over from San Luis Obispo County.

We've learned more about MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation, from Blippi, the clown from YouTube! We really wanted to encourage the kids to visit a museum again, now that the mask mandate has been lifted and things are getting back to a more normal. At first, the kids were not up for a drive so I showed a video of MOXI from Blipp...

Our Robot Server at Meet Up Chinese Cuisine in Santa Barbara

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Friday, February 25, 2022, In : Santa Barbara 
I'm so excited to say that I've been served by an AI robot server at a restaurant in Santa Barbara yesterday at Meet Up Chinese Cuisine Restaurant!


Her name is Shao Tu and she's smart and prompt.

We ordered a small wonton soup, potstickers, beef chow fun and yang chow fried rice!




The restaurant is kind of tucked in so if you missed a turn, it'll take a few minutes to get back around to find it again. However, the place is a true treasure find! We can't wait to come back. Santa Barbara a...

Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum in December

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Sunday, December 8, 2019, In : Santa Barbara 
We went to the Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum today since we were in the area for a Lowe's visit. Santa Maria is part of Santa Barbara County but since we live in South County area of San Luis Obispo county, it's only a 20 minute drive for us. 

It's the holiday season so the inside of the museum was decked with Christmas decorations! To our surprise, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus were there too! We came on a special holiday event and were able to get our kids to take a picture with them!

Wine Tasting in Buellton near Solvang

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Monday, July 22, 2019, In : Santa Barbara 
Have you ever watched the movie Sideways? It's a story about two San Diego State University alumni (like me!) who decided to go to Buellton in Santa Barbara County for some wine-tasting adventure as a bachelor party. It's a wonderful story and very comical.

Lucky for us, Buellton is only an hour south drive from here! It's also on the way to Solvang, the Danish Capital of America. In Buellton, there is a main street where you can hit many wine tasting rooms within the same block called Indust...

Kid Friendly Wineries in Solvang

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.

With a sign in front saying it is kid-friendly, my husband and I went inside of Lucas & Lewellen and shared 5 tasti...

Solvang Visit as a Family and Sideways Inn Stay

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Thursday, February 28, 2019, In : Santa Barbara 
We visited Solvang, a fun one-of-a-kind Danish town in Santa Barbara County, California, this past weekend. It was bustling with tourists, visitors and dogs! (Note: All photos Pinterest photos below were taken by SanLuisObispoMom.com.) 

It is impossible to walk around downtown Solvang and not get tempted to buy a pastry at one of the many Danish bakeries. The combination of the smell of the freshly baked goods, the perfection of a macaron and the sizes of the pastries definitely hit you becaus...
