San Miguel invites travelers to experience early California history in a picturesque setting. Visit historic Mission San Miguel Arcangel, view restored paintings crafted by local tribespeople, and stop to admire koi fish swimming in a colorful tile fountain. The nearby Rios-Caledonia Adobe, museum and gift shop offer a fascinating look at San Miguel’s early years as a stopover for missionaries, cowboys and Western settlers. Ride a bike through the back roads, where you’ll pass oak trees, vineyards, orchards and ranchland. The Pleasant Valley Wine Trail is home to world-class wineries known for bold red wines, elegant tasting rooms and warm hospitality. Neighborhood events happen year-round in this tight-knit community, where artists, farmers and winemakers find their own small-town paradise.
