California's Wine Coast Country
Many visitors come to California's Wine Coast Country to tour family-owned wineries and excellent vineyards, but the state's less-famous wine region offers other vacation ideas as well, from outdoor pursuits to sightseeing and shopping. Hugging the rugged coast, one of the world's most scenic oceanfront drives reveals a landscape of native forests of Monterey pines, apple orchards, deserted sand beaches, and coves. Small communities like Avila Beach preserve a strong sense of old California, while larger towns provide all modern amenities. Overlooked by Hearst's famous hilltop castle, tiny San Simeon serves as a good base for visiting pristine beaches and nearby wineries. Welcoming novices and wine connoisseurs alike, California's Wine Coast Country offers perfect weekend escapes. In the build up to your vacation in California's Wine Coast Country, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our United States trip planner.
