About this event
Day 1: Leave from The Habit parking lot in Santa Barbara over Hwy 154 to Hwy 246 past Los Olivos to Hwy 101 N. for a leisurely drive to Morro Bay where we’ll take our first break. Now the fun begins with a scenic drive along Hwy 1 N. to the Ragged Point Inn north of San Simeon for a scrumptious lunch overlooking the ocean (total drive from Santa Barbara 151 miles). After our lunch, we’ll travel South the 15.4 miles to San Simeon for an afternoon tour of Hearst Castle. The tours are usually two hours. Afterwards, for the next 37 miles, we’ll caravan South on Hwy 1 to Hwy 46 N. to Paso Robles where we’ll be checking-in to our lodging for the next two evenings at the famous Paso Robles Inn where we’ve negotiated a great price of $147.00/night, inclusive of all taxes and fees to be paid to hotel directly. The Paso Robles Inn is located directly across from the town square where restaurants and night spots abound. See below for instructions on hotel reservations.
Day 2: Morning meet-up for a group caravan drive over Adelaide and Vineyard Roads to the following extraordinary sites: 14.5 miles to Halter Ranch Vineyards for wine tasting and tour. Next 2.08 miles to the multi medal winner for their extra virgin olive oil, Pasolivo Ranch for Olive Oil sampling. Back to the cars for 2.2 miles to the beautiful site of Thatcher Winery; a lovely place for exploring the winery and adjoining green pastures. Once again, back to the vehicles for 2.5 miles to the spectacular Opolo Winery for lunch featuring fantastic menu selections with extraordinary views from their hilltop site. Just when you’d think the festivities are drawing to a close, we’re off again for the next 17 miles to the Paso Robles Muni Airport to tour the Estrella Warbird aircraft museum. An incredible collection of WW2 aircraft, cars, and trucks. Then it’s back to the Paso Robles Inn for a short rest in preparation for our group dinner at the famous Fish Gaucho Restaurant.
