Half day trip to Montana De Oro and Morro Bay for Birthday Lunch

Eddie checks out the waves Montana De Oro - Fischer Studios - Wanitoo.com

Yesterday we headed to Los Osos for our first trip to Montana De Oro, a pretty cool hidden destination if you haven't been there. There are trails everywhere, tide pools and pretty much nature everything. There was no fee to enter, and I can easily see this becoming a favorite local destination of ours. The kids loved it, and if we didn't have other plans we could have easily made a day of it. Afterwards we headed to Morro Bay and ate lunch at Giovanni's.

Our first visit to the Charles Paddock Zoo



I had to take a trip to Paso Robles and we decided to stop in Atascadero on the way back for some lunch and our first visit to the Charles Paddock Zoo. Our choice for lunch, mainly because we were starving was the A&W just up the road. After lunch, we hopped in the car, loaded the kids into the car seats and made the couple minute drive to the museum.

Last minute visit to Avila Valley Barn

 

Sometimes the kids just need to get outside. While the local parks and beach usually fit the ticket, the Avila Valley barn is a go to resource for free family entertainment. By free, I mean there are no entry fees to see the animals and walk the grounds (Other attractions do cost money). You can feed the animals with some lettuce they sell for $1, which our kids love.  Montana and Eddie never get tired of this place, and get excited whenever we mention it. It also has vegetables and fruit for sale, a small restaurant, hay rides, pony rides, and all sorts of special events throughout the year.
