5 Fun Ideas for Kids and Families Visiting Paso This Summer
Monday, July 1, 2019
You can't hide from the summer heat, but you can make a splash at Ravine Waterpark. A family fun day not to be forgotten! Test your fear of heights on a five story water slide, relax in the Kickback Kreek, or let the little ones discover their inner swimmer in the Tadpool.
BONUS: Dine and sip at the in-house Tiki Bar & Grill with live music most Saturdays!
Mission San Miguel
It may be summer, but there is always time to learn a little bit about California history. Mission San Miguel, located about ten miles north of Paso Robles, adds to the authenticity and heritage of the Central Coast with its gardens, architecture, and rich cultural history. Founded in 1797, Mission San Miguel is a National Historical Landmark that has been an important part of California history for over 200 years.
BONUS: Admission for children 5-12 is only $3.00, and kids under five receive free entry.
Paso Robles Children's Museum
Built in an old firehouse in downtown, the Paso Robles Children's Museum is the perfect summer spot to cool off, burn some energy, and let kids be kids. Visitors can even participate in one of Paso’s favorite pastimes, a “grape stomp,” a ginormous ball pit that simulates crushing grapes to make juice!
BONUS: Just outside the museum is a ‘Little Free Library’ donated by local mom and blogger, Tanya Stricktland, who was inspired to make this contribution “to teach [her] kids to be kind, to share and to generally be good humans.” Kids are encouraged to “Take a Book, Share a Book,” a great lesson no matter where you are visiting from.
Amazing Scavenger Hunt Adventure - Paso Robles
Turn your vacation into an exploratory game and discover the hidden gems and history of downtown Paso. Solve clues and complete challenges, this Amazing Race style game is unique in that it appeals to parents and kids just as much as it does to family and friends no matter what age. Start when you want and play at your own pace, all guided from a Smartphone.
BONUS: Use code PASOHUNT when you sign up for a special game discount!
Take a Day Trip to the Coast for some Morro Bay Fun
Plan a day trip out to the coast and get some chill-time in Morro Bay, one of the many quaint beach towns on the central coast. Grab lunch at a family owned restaurant, go for a kayak ride in the bay, and keep an eye out for the sea otters, the cutest animals on the coast!
BONUS: Temps vary between 40-50 degrees from Paso to the coast. So you can stay cool during the day and be back in Paso to enjoy the refreshing nightly breeze.
