On September 13, 2017, we drove down Highway 101 to spend a few days in the little town of Cayucos, California, on the Central Coast. In prior trips we had driven past the town on Highway 1 but never stopped in to look around.
Cayucos turned out to be a delight: the bed and breakfast where we stayed, On the Beach, was convenient and friendly. Our room had a lovely view of the pier and ocean. Right across the street was Duckie’s Chowderhouse, and their chowders were delicious. The town, pier, and beach were fun to explore.
Our major hiking destination was Montaña de Oro State Park south of Cayucos near Los Osos. We walked the cliff trail and climbed down to the beach to check out some of the tide pools along the way.
We had a great time and will be going back soon!
