OUTDOOR RECREATION IN THE CENTRAL COAST
If you love the outdoors, the question on the Central Coast isn’t what you’ll do but how you will find time to do it all. There’s surf fishing and scuba diving, mountain biking and horseback riding. Birders flock here to check off another species on their life lists while wildlife lovers know that the Central Coast is one of the best spots to view marine mammals anywhere in the world. The rugged inland mountains of Los Padres National Forest let backpackers escape for days at a time while day hikers can set out on coastal trails to search for spring wildflowers.
