The Plan

Saturday morning we'll make two stops to pick people up (8am in South Bay, 8:30am in Westwood, details sent out three days before trip) and head up the coast to Paso Robles. On our way to Paso Robles, we'll stop for an early lunch at Cold Springs Tavern, a funky little off the beaten path tavern that has been operating since 1883. After lunch, we'll drive another 2 hours to Allegretto Vineyard Resort, where we'll drop our bags and make our way to three incredible wineries whose SoCal wines rival Napa Valley. Our final winery will have live music and food for purchase. Afterward, everyone can go hang back at the hotel or head into Paso Robles to explore the quirky bar scene. 

Sunday morning, feel free to relax in the poolside cabanas or walk in to town until 11am when we'll check out and head to Avila Beach for a couple hours of relaxing by the sea, checking out the town, or surfing. Avila Beach, named one of Travel + Leisure's "Best Little Beach Towns" is the quintessential California seaside haven and a great place to relax and enjoy the sun! After a couple of hours here, we'll make our way back down the coast, stop in Santa Barbara for some food and get back to Los Angeles around 7pm.
