Spring Break Idea: Spend a Few Days in Pismo Beach
The kids are getting a week off sometime this month... what to do? Last year we took a drive up the coast to Pismo Beach, which is not all that crowded this time of year and boasts reasonably priced hotels right off the water (and, handily, right off the 101). Pismo Beach is also a quick drive to San Luis Obispo, and close to many nearby Central Coast wineries. For a scenic drive, take the 154 highway north of Santa Barbara, which brings you through the countryside and Lake Cachuma. From there, you can hit Santa Ynez, Solvang and Los Olivos, and then stop by Los Alamos back on the 101 on the way north.
