Best Avila Beach Wine Tasting Rooms | Reviews By a Local

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Monday, September 4, 2023, In : Wineries 
Avila Beach is a very beautiful beach town in San Luis Obispo County with nice restaurants, shops and wine tasting places! As a local, we've visited the handful of wine tasing rooms and places that offer flights right there at Avila Beach. You can easily walk from the sand to any of these places for a wine break.

Even though they are all so close to each other. Please do not attempt to do a wine tasting flight at all five of these places on the list in one day! Some of these wines have really ...

Port San Luis Pier (Harford Pier) Pictures in Avila Beach

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Sunday, August 29, 2021, In : Avila Beach 
There are 3 piers in Avila Beach but Port San Luis Pier is my favorite of the bunch. It's located on the farthest right if you're facing the ocean and driving into Avila Beach from the road. It's past the PG & E plant and lighthouse.


You'll see some campers parked there. Don't be discourage. Just keep driving and you'll see a free parking area. That is when you'll see the Port San Luis Pier. You can go fishing on this pier without a fishing license and also see sea lions from this pier. The...

Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa and The Gardens of Avila Restaurant Review

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Sunday, February 16, 2020, In : Romantic 
As a Valentine's Day celebration, my husband and I used the Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa gift card that he gifted me last November for our 7th anniversary yesterday.

We had our very first couple's massage together at Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa. After our spa time, we had brunch at The Gardens of Avila Restaurant, also part of Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa's property. When we came here for the first time, we were a bit clueless on how things work around here and hop...

Avila Beach Hotels & Things To Do

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Thursday, May 23, 2019, In : Beaches 
Avila Beach is located in San Luis Obispo County on the Central Coast of California. It's a small beach town with a 3 different piers (click here to see pictures of the piers), which is a lot for a small beach town. With less than a handful hotels in the area, this makes it a quieter traveling spot but still very beautiful. The locals like to keep it a secret but nowadays, a lot of tourists have discovered it and it can get very hard to find parking during the summer weekends!

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

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com 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...

Review and Pictures of Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards in SLO

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Monday, March 11, 2019, In : Wineries 
Over the weekend, we had special visitors and decided to take them to the kid-friendly Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards in San Luis Obispo.

The most extraordinary part about this vineyard is that they have beautiful peacocks roaming around. Enjoying a taster in their large outdoor patio while listening to the peacocks was a very interesting experience! Address of Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards: 1947 See Canyon Rd, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405.

Central Coast Aquarium Review By Local Mom | Avila Beach

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Monday, January 28, 2019, In : For Kids 
In Avila Beach, by the kid's playground is a really small aquarium called Central Coast Aquarium. Since it was right by the playground and we were already there, we decided to pay a visit. There is a fee for adults and children. Kids 2 years old and under are free. You can literally go through the aquarium in 15 minutes! It may not be worth it if you are on a tight budget but our little boys still enjoyed it. Here are the pictures we took from our visit. 

The most fascinating part of the aquar...
