After dinner, what better way to end the evening than taking your family on a trail walk along the Salinas River in Paso Robles? This essence of having a happy stomach and being in nature truly exemplifies the Thanksgiving spirit. This River Walk is one of our Maverick Pup’s favorite stops!

On the other hand, for those who want a Thanksgiving experience that differs from the classic dinner, Paso Robles has you covered!

Be sure to check out Enoteca Restaurant for its special prix-fixe three course customizable menu. Picture this: your three-course dinner could start off with a mouthwatering caramelized pork belly and sea scallop dish, and then transition to truffled ricotta sacchetti with roasted butternut squash and basil. Top it off with a warm callebaut chocolate cake. Check out their full menu for more course options.

If you still crave for something vibrant, modern, and cultural, Mistura Restaurant has a menu that will not disappoint. Velvet asparagus soup with crème fraiche and pancetta, sustainable white seabass filet sautéed with Peruvian Botija olives and Ali Amarillo over purple sweet potatoes — what can go wrong on Thanksgiving Day with this meal?

*Maverick Tip: Our Wellness Maverick loves stopping at Mistura for amazing Peruvian flavors!


Don’t let the evening stop after dinner! Downtown Paso Robles has a plethora of artisan shops, upscale clothing boutiques, and wine markets for everyone’s taste and budget. Take a trip downtown with your family after dinner or for Black Friday to shop or for gifts to show your appreciation for the special people in your life, or just treat yourself.
