Discover Our Wine Region
You’ve got salt in your hair, sand between your toes and two, maybe three, boards in the back seat. Your perfect wine pairing involves a bonfire, a little surf guitar, and the occasional errant Frisbee. Avila Valley is one of the few places where you can taste great wines grown and made within an earshot of the Pacific, all while you sit back and enjoy the sunset off the water.
Central Coast Aquarium
This small, family-friendly aquarium is ideally situated just steps away from the beach and boardwalk. Visitors get a fun, hands-on experience that allows them to explore the world of the ocean, beneath the surface. Their mission is to educate and inspire visitors of all ages about local sea life and marine science by giving them an exciting hands-on experience.
