Stops on the Way

Explore the Laid-Back Side of the California Coast in Atascadero

Take the family-friendly Brews and Burger Trail and stroll the parks with your beverage in this community designed with a Utopian vision.

In Atascadero you’ll find a genuine, no fuss community full of open spaces and incredible food which serves as a perfect hub to the inland area east of California’s central coast.

Explore Atascadero’s beautiful open spaces via foot or horseback to get some fresh air and sunshine to start your day. Hike two miles of trails in Stadium Park to see a mysterious silver monolith, a local art installation, or hike the three-mile trail system that follows an oak-lined creek in Three Bridges Oak Preserve. If you’d rather explore on horseback, book a ride with Central Coast Trail Rides. This easy-to-work-with company brings the horses to you, so you can enjoy a ride through a vineyard, around a lake or other incredible destinations.

Don’t miss the family-friendly Brews and Burgers Trail featuring a variety of cideries and restaurants to give you a different taste of California’s food and beverage scene. Stop in at the popular Sylvester’s Burgers, a bright yellow building with a retro interior that’s been serving up burgers since 1988. Another fun set of stops on the trail are Bristols Cider House and The Poisoned Apple, serving locally made hard cider, which you can enjoy to-go at Atascadero’s many beautiful parks and open spaces thanks to the city’s open container law.

History lovers shouldn’t miss the gorgeous Historic City Hall building where you can take a tour and learn about the area’s fascinating history. Publisher Edward Garner Lewis founded Atascadero with a vision of utopia. The City Hall Building was the centerpiece of this planned community called “Atascadero Colony” filled with orchards, cottages and a beachfront hotel which stretched from the coast to today’s town of Atascadero, which is located 25 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from incredible wine country.
