Welcome to the Central Coast of California!
What a beautiful place to live, work, and play! Located halfway between the major metropolitan areas of Los Angles and San
Fransisco you get the best of both worlds – pristine old California landscapes and also proximity to hospitals, airports and
shopping. With its diverse economy there are many fields of employment just minutes from home. Just think of having no
commute! And there may be no better place to retire, or semi-retire. The climate, air-quality, and friendly people rival anywhere else
in the world. So beautiful is this area that many people have purchased a second home in this just to have a place to stay when
taking part in the many local wine events, and horse sporting events. For many the benefits of owning a vacation home just a few
hours away is simply too attractive. This is the web site where you can find Paso Robles real estate for sale and in surrounding
cities as well.
One big reason that people are moving to the three Counties of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Monterey, is the weather. The
climate is Mediterranean type weather. Warm days, lots of sunshine, low humidity, and cool nights characterize the unbelievably
comfortable weather. Excellent air quality too is a big attractor. On top of that there is very little auto traffic, friendly people, a slower
pace of life, and many recreation options - starting with the Pacific Ocean. Imagine owning your own California beachfront property.
There are unspoiled sandy beaches, ocean piers, spectacular cliffs, hiking trails, lighthouses and more. You can surf, scuba dive,
windsurf, kite board, or take a dune buggy ride on the sand dunes of Pismo Beach. Pismo Beach Recreation Area is one of the few
beaches in the country where you can drive your own car on the beach and camp. Other parks nearby include Morro Dunes Natural
Preserve, Montana de Oro State Park, Monarch Butterfly Park, Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area, Pismo Dunes Natural
Preserve, Pismo State Beach, and Guadalupe Nipomo Dunes Preserve. Further north is the Hearst Castle area, the entry to world-
renowned Big Sur. Some of the cities include Cambria, Napenthe, Carmel and Carmel Valley. Here is a site where you can see 25
reasons to visit Paso Robles.

Or you could own a ranch or farm or vacant land next to the Los Padres National Forest or BLM land which allows you almost

Santa Barbara is famous for its beautiful beaches and climate, as well as golf, spas, shopping and renown restaurants. Santa Ynez
is a beautiful area made popular recently by the wine movie Sideways, and also the TV show The Batchelor, with Andrew Firestone
of the Firestone Winery. Ojai is another lovely community, home to many movie stars wanting to be close to Los Angles yet in
beautiful, pristine location. Ventura at the lower boundary of the Central Coast acts as a buffer to Los Angles. The town of Parkfield
