A town of hot springs and wine, Paso Robles (or "Pass of the Oaks") feels like a desert paradise to those who travel here.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tablas Creek Vineyard and Pasolivo Olive Oil. Change things up with these side-trips from Paso Robles: Speed Boats Tours (in Avila Beach), Piedras Blancas (in San Simeon) and Cambria (Moonstone Beach Dr & Fiscalini Ranch Preserve). Next up on the itinerary: do a tasting at Calcareous Vineyard.
