LEGOLAND California and SEA LIFE Aquarium Adventure in Carlsbad Review

Posted by on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, In : LEGOLAND California 
This past Monday, we took our sons on a grand adventure to LEGOLAND California and SEA LIFE Aquarium in Carlsbad, California (San Diego)!

The weather was perfect and the kids had a blast! My sons are 5 and 2 years old. Because my younger son is still just 2, he got in for free at both LEGOLAND California and SEA LIFE Aquarium. We were happy to be able to take advantage of this! The distance from San Luis Obispo to LEGOLAND California is about a 4 hour and 30 minute drive, depending on LA traf...

Cave Landing Beautiful Beach Hikes in San Luis Obispo

Posted by on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, In : Free Things to do 
If healthy and abled, take advantage of the many hikes and cliff views of the beaches of San Luis Obispo County.

Cave Landing and Pirate's Cove
The parking lot can be really bumpy so if you don't have a 4x4, try to park close to the front of the entryway! You can't go wrong with any of the trails here. We took the main one where it takes you to the cave.

Watch out for this cave because it leads you to a cliff to the ocean of Avila Beach!

A short walk from the cave is the other end to Pirate's ...

Avila Beach Pier and Avila Beach Farmers Market

Posted by on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, In : Beaches 
Avila Beach is a special beach city for us because my husband works in Avila Beach. Although a beautiful place, local residential housing options are very limited there. Right in the middle of a lot of businesses, is an entrance to the old public Avila Beach Pier, which is solely made out of wood and when we walked on it (currently still closed) with my 5 year old and 2 year old sons, they stumbled a few times. It's not as smooth as the Pismo Beach Pier but it's worth trying to walk on, if yo...

Pet Emporium in Arroyo Grande

Posted by on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, In : Arroyo Grande 
A new favorite thing for us to do is visit the boa constrictor at CD's Pet Emporium in Arroyo Grande. It's so rare to find a boa constrictor in a pet shop so this is an amazing and unique attribute that this pet shop currently has. They have a large reptile area in the back that is dimly lit. All of the animals looks healthy and happy! Now of course this is all free just to see. It only costs money to buy!

They also have 2 large parrots and other small birds towards the front of the shop! Rig...

Avila Valley Barn Review & Pictures - Free Visit to See Farm Animals

Posted by on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, In : Farms 
The best part about Avila Valley Barn is that it's free to visit the farm animals here! There are dozens and dozens of goats! There are also chickens, ponies, cows, sheep and other animals! You can buy some lettuce to feed at their store to feed the the goats and this made it a very wonderful experience for the kids. 

We also took advantage of their pony ride, extra fee, for the kids. It's a short ride but my 2 year old thoroughly enjoyed every second of it! 

If you're hungry, you can al...

Paso Robles Children's Museum

Paso Robles Children's Museum was having a free day for everyone so we took advantage of this opportunity to also explore Paso Robles a bit. Many locals who live in Paso Robles with little ones come here quite often.

Paso Robles Children's Museum is 2 stories full of kid's activities and an outdoor area with more play as well! There are a lot things to build with and climb on. They also have a ball pit!
