Enjoy the Outdoors This Spring

While we admit there’s never a bad time of year to visit the Central Coast, there’s something special about the spring time, when longer, warmer days encourage more time spent outdoors surrounded by blooming flowers and lush greenery.

Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway for two or a spring break trip for the whole family, these outdoor activities make for a perfect Highway 1 spring vacation!

Cycle the Central Coast

Whether you’re a gifted athlete or an entry level cyclist, the Central Coast offers miles of cycling routes for every level. Cycle Central Coast provides information on scenic rides in and around the area, as well as a calendar of upcoming events, like April’s Wildflower Century ride and Eroica California.

View Wildlife in Natural Surroundings

Highway 1 offers some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities anywhere, providing plenty of chances to see elephant seals, whales and other animals at various viewing spots along the way. Stop at the Elephant Seal Vista Point area to watch elephant seals as they sunbathe, look for migrating grey whales from the designated Whale Trail viewing spots or take a forest walk to spot unique birds. There’s a plethora of wildlife to see that make the Central Coast their home.

Explore the Coast by Sea

There’s no more thrilling way to experience the coast than from the sea. Whether you rent a kayak to explore the coves or cruise around on your own stand-up paddleboard, getting out on the water makes for a fun and unforgettable adventure. You may even have the chance to get up close and personal with sealife not viewable from land!

Practice Yoga in Cambria

For a calming way to enjoy the outdoors, take your yoga mat outside for a yoga session on the sand or in nature. Tula Yoga offers daily yoga in Cambria, as well as private yoga sessions on the beach, while nearby Vanaspati Yoga encourages taking your practice outdoors for a yoga experience inspired by nature.
