The drive on Foxen Canyon is through the wine country. Many great wineries along the way. Foxen is nice spot for a picnic lunch.
“Located just 10 miles away in Santa Maria on Clark Avenue, this impressive winery and vineyard is worth a visit. One of the most breathtaking tasting rooms on the planet, with impressive wines and a great view. Prepare to spend hours there lounging in their gardens.”
“If you saw the movie Sideways you will remember the Hitching Post (the restaurant that Maya worked at)- a delicious steak house ! ”
“South of Guadalupe, CA lies an extraordinary and unique nature preserve. Featuring towering 550 foot high dunes-the tallest on the west coast-and the Santa Maria River Estuary, not only is this park beautiful but it is also ecologically significant. AKA Main Street Beach or Guadalupe Beach, Rancho Guadalupe Dunes Preserve is a great place to surf, fish, hike, take photos, view wildlife, and simply enjoy nature. Please note that the surf can be very dangerous at this location. Part of the Dunes are closed between March 1st and October 1st for the protection of the western snowy plover’s breeding and nesting habitat.”
“Big, beautiful park with duck pond, playgrounds, picnic areas, and pony rides on the weekends!”
“Cute Danish Town 40 minutes away with breweries, ostriches, bike rentals, wine tasting and an open air amphitheater. Make sure you try out the Abelskivers ”
