Don’t rush through SLO CAL, or you might just miss Atascadero, the friendly small town with big family adventures. Located between Paso Robles and Santa Margarita, Atascadero is known for its laid-back vibe and exuberant community spirit. Rolling hills dotted with oak trees, parks, and hiking trails, a family-friendly downtown, and a host of casual dining options make this tucked-away destination perfect for unwinding and reconnecting with the ones you love.

Take the kids to the zoo to see the Malayan tiger, pack a picnic for the Sunken Gardens and a tour of the town’s majestic 1918 City Hall, or cozy up to world-class wine, cider, and craft beer. Whether you choose to tee off, opt for a round of frisbee golf, or go for a sunset stroll around pristine Atascadero Lake Park, one thing is for certain. Each breath of fresh Atascadero air has a way of calming the soul.
