Thanksgiving Break Camps in SLO County

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Sunday, September 19, 2021, In : For Kids 
It's only a couple more months until Thanksgiving is here. If your kids are like mine, they usually crave to get more active by the 3rd day of any consecutive break. A few hours a day at a vacation day camp can really help them have a more exciting break and still have time to relax at home.

Luckily, there's a few regular places around the county that usually run break camps. Here's what I've found so far for Thanksgiving Break Camps. More will be posted as they are announced on the web.

Boomers Santa Maria Review by San Luis Obispo Mom

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Friday, August 13, 2021, In : For Kids 
This summer, we took my sons to the Boomers in Santa Maria for the first time. It was a drive to the next county over but we always enjoy going into a big town again.

There's never an admission fee to go inside however you have to pay for the rides, mini golf and playing on the arcades. I think that if the kids are still little, they can skip the rides and just enjoy the indoor arcade. They also serve food so you don't have to worry about being hungry last minute. They have burgers, pretzel...

Exploration Discovery Center Experience in Grover Beach

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Saturday, August 7, 2021, In : For Kids 
We visited the Exploration Discovery Center in Grover Beach on their opening day today! Here are some pictures from our visit below.

After I picked my kids up from summer day camp, I asked them if they're up for exploring a new place today. I showed them pictures that the Exploration Discovery Center posted on their social media and website and the kids decided to go, judging from the posted pictures. When we got there, there were more things to do than expected!

Immediately upon entry, the...

San Luis Obispo Library in downtown SLO

Posted by on Sunday, May 12, 2019, In : For Kids 
The first time that I had attempted to take my kids to the San Luis Obispo Library in downtown San Luis Obispo, I was really intimidated. As we arrived, I realized that there's not a guaranteed parking area designated for the library like the other libraries in the county have.

In downtown, there were metered parking spots along the streets but during the day, those are all usually taken. There were also parking structures all around but only the first hour is free. At least the 2 that I saw ...

Arroyo Grande Library

Posted by on Thursday, January 24, 2019, In : For Kids 
Our first library adventure in SLO took place at Arroyo Grande Library in Arroyo Grande, CA. They have a children's area with LEGOs, computers for kids, puzzles and a little private area in the back. Here are the photos that we took from our library visit below.

The kids really enjoy the LEGOs, although it seemed too close to the main area where everyone could hear them building. The loud plastic clangs that came naturally from the shuffles of the LEGOs can sound disturbing a bit to maybe som...
