The menu changes daily but most of the time you can find mussels, scallops, and a fish stew. Their Straus Organic Mint & Espresso Mud Pie should be a staple and a must-try for everyone. After all that driving you’re probably feeling it in your back and need a good massage to put you back together. Book a night at the Portola Hotel & Spa for a spa and relaxation evening. The nautical-themed rooms are delightful, airy, and cozy.    Book your room at Portola Hotel & Spa Relax at the Portola Hotel & Spa Pismo Beach Pismo BeachFlights to San Luis Obispo County Airport starting at $181Car rental from $47* a dayHotels in Pismo Beach Bubble-gum alley in Pismo might be weird, might be cool, but it’s definitely interesting.

The Monarch Butterfly Grove and Dinosaur Caves Park are also great spots to stop and visit. There are around 10,000 friendly butterflies each year and the Dinosaur Cave Park is popular for photographs as there are large props scattered throughout.  The Monarch Butterfly Grove Chipwrecked & Cottage Inn by the Sea This little but fierce sandwich shop located in Pismo is a family-owned and operated business. Serving up homemade chips and delightful sandwiches, there is something on their extensive menu for everyone. Call it a night at Cottage Inn; a beach hotel located right on the ocean.

The honey & cornbread cookies, eureka lemon & marionberries, and wild sweet clover are just a few examples of the non-traditional flavors they offer. Good old-fashioned chocolate and vanilla are on the menu for those who don’t want to venture off the beaten path too much. McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream is a hit for children and adults! When you think of the Chesire Cat, I bet Alice in Wonderland comes to mind as it should. Individual rooms at the Cheshire Cat Inn are named after the popular tale’s characters and places. There are 18 to choose from and breakfast is included in your stay.  Book your room at the Cheshire Cat Inn Malibu  MalibuFlights to Los Angeles starting at $77Car rental at LAX from $38* a dayHotels in Malibu For the last destination on this curated road trip check out Malibu.

This little trip combines wild animals and wine, what more could you want, right?  Ollo & The M Malibu At Ollo you can expect a Mediterranean and Italian focused menu with produce sourced from local farms. They’re open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and happy hour. The M is all about simplicity and convenience. The location is great due to it being a 5-minute walk from the beach, close to shopping and restaurants, and also hiking trails and bike paths. Rates are a little on the high end at around $270 a night, but it’s worth it.   Drifting Down PCH The Pacific Coast Highway is a smooth ride with great views. Hopefully, you can put the top down and enjoy the ride as much as the destinations. These top picks are just some of what you can do while traveling the California coast. There are tons of must-see and do adventures in the area. Buckle up and take this road trip with your best guy or gal pals.
