    Connect with nature, local wines, historic landmarks, and more along Highway 1 from Jan. 13 through Feb. 28.

    A WONDERFUL, ONE-FOR-THE-BOOKS TRIP... isn't just about going and seeing and doing and eating and sleeping and returning home; there is some connection to be made with a destination. And when that destination fronts several glorious miles of Pacific-pretty shoreline, the ways to connect quite often, and understandably, involve the ocean and its denizens. If the notion of "stewardship travel" appeals, and getting to know the places and people and seals and whales and lighthouses tempts you, look to the Central Coast, and Highway 1, and the Coastal Discovery & Stewardship Celebration. It's on from...

    JAN. 13 THROUGH FEB. 28, 2017, and finding your activity or connection point is as easy as browsing a list of suggestions (well that's the first stop, anywho). You can snag a Cayucos Cleanup Kit and Appreciation Tote Bag, pitch in as a volunteer at the Point San Luis Lighthouse, feed some jellyfish at the Central Coast Aquarium, or listening to an information docent talk on those sandy celebrities near San Simeon, the elephant seals. Wine tastings, peeks inside historic adobes, and a free film at Hearst Castle all about the giants of the nearby waters are other choices (with many more beyond those). The discovery is rich and the chance to take on an active role, even one of stewardship, is part of the plan. 

    WANT TO GET INVOLVED? Read more about this vibrant group effort, an effort that has the likes of Coastal San Luis Obispo County on board, and California State Parks, and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. How will you connect in Cambria or Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes or Estero Bluffs State Park? Start counting the amazing ways to make your vacation linger on not only in your memory (and photos) but by a difference you made while on the road.
