2011 Graduates and SLO Country Bucket List

The summer months promise warm weather and carefree days for many, but they also signal a MEGA life change for graduating high school and college seniors and their families! Some graduates will leave the Central Coast and are looking to take advantage of everything the area has to offer before hitting the road. following are some of the activities and sites worth seeing and/or taking part in before leaving town.

1) Beach Bonfire – Avila Beach and the Oceano Dunes State Beach provide the perfect venue for an evening fire on the beach. Roasted hot dogs and marshmallows over the open fire taste fantastic! Watching the sunset is so therapeutic.

2) Drive along Highway 1- Although gas prices are getting to be outrageous, a day of driving along the coast is so worth it. Grab a friend or two and split gas to save money! As the weather warms and the days are sunny and clear, there is nothing like the California coastline. If you don’t have to rush back for anything, think about camping for the night in Big Sur.

3) Enjoy wine country: If you’re 21+ take advantage of the fantastic wineries Central California has to offer. Why not vow to taste at one winery a weekend until you leave? You’ll stay responsible and in control and have an excuse to enjoy great wine every week.

4) Sunset Drive-in Movies – SLO is lucky to have a theatre that shows new movies every weekend …and for cheap! Round up a few friends or a bunch of friends, some pillows and blankets, popcorn and snacks, and some folding chairs and watch a show amongst the stars.

5) Farmer’s market- If the SLO Farmer’s Market is too busy for your liking, check out the dates and times of other markets in the area (there are many!). Local farmer’s markets are a great place to support local businesses and pick up healthy food for the week.

If you have any other suggestions please share them with us. Be safe in your travels in the coming months and CONGRATULATIONS TO GRADUATING SENIOR CLASS OF 2011!
