Things to Do

Rev up your all-terrain vehicle and explore the largest dunes complex in the state of California like never before. Just off PCH, the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area will have your adrenaline pumping all day long as you traverse the hills of sand in a dune buggy. Looking for a more serene afternoon? Travel across miles of windswept sand by foot or by horseback. Enjoy surf fishing and invigorating hiking trails with views of crashing waves and undulating dunes. The Great American Melodrama & Vaudeville theatre offers belly laughs for the whole family. While the historian in you will love the Oceano Train Depot, which served as a classic Type 22 train depot until 1973 and is now a museum filled with railroad artifacts. End your day by settling in for the night with a beachside campfire under a blanket of twinkling stars.
