6 Can't Miss Couples Attractions
Every spring Paso Robles’ rolling landscape is literally blanketed in vibrant colors. Occurring every spring after the winter rains, Paso’s wildflower superbloom paints the hills in a patchwork sea of purples, yellows, oranges and pinks. Just a minutes drive from downtown, and you and yours can be picnicking and posing among the miles and miles of these posies, which include baby blue eyes, goldfields, mustard, owl’s clover, California poppies, tidy tips and purple vetch. While you can spy these pops of color sparsely throughout the landscape around Paso, you'll find the most awe-inspiring display to the east off Shell Creek Road. Starting in Creston, head south toward Route 58, all long the way there are plenty of pull-off points to take in this stunning springtime phenomenon.
