We have started to get into a groove and find our way around Fresno more and more. In all honesty, the city itself could be Anytown, USA – but add some palm trees and consistently warm weather and it becomes slightly better than average.
Even the Fresnonians adhere to a strict code when it comes to finding things to do… Get out of the city and enjoy some of the great places that are merely a short drive away.
Naturally, when presented with a few days off, we headed to the coast.
Pismo Beach, CA is a short 2.5 hour drive from our place in Fresno which made it a perfect getaway for some time on the coast. It’s a small, surfer town where life slows down and flip-flops are customary.
A couple days spent lounging by the pool and exploring the beach were just what we needed to relax and reset after transitioning to life in Fresno.
Only ten minutes away from Pismo Beach is the neighboring city of San Louis Obispo or “SLO” as the in-crowd calls it.
While Pismo has the sand and surf, SLO has the art, music, local food & college town feel. We spent a day wandering down Higuera Street and popping in and out of cool stores and coffee shops.
I needed to get some work done, so I befriended a new favorite coffee shop and posted up while Kayla continued touring the city. If you ever find yourself in SLO – be sure to grab a late from Scout Coffee.
Not surprisingly, we had the camera in hand and took away some great memories and photos from the weekend.
