When locals talk about this unique town the word "surfing" is always included in the conversation. The town is known as the coolest small town in America but it also known for its laid back attitude, surfers and parties.
When my wife and I visit this terrific, little central coast town it's usually to walk on the pier and eat fish and chips. There are many different types of restaurants in the town but I happen to like fried fish. So, we always stop get an order of fish and chips.
If you like to fish you can certainly wet a hook on the long pier. We don't fish but we do like to watch the fishermen on the pier attempting to catch a whale.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We have two Shih Tzus dogs and these dogs are our kids. We want to take them with us when we venture out across the central coast. Some beaches will not allow dogs and some beaches allow dogs on a leash.
The beaches around this little town are dog friendly and our dogs love the beach.
DO - You can knock around the many shops, stores and gift shops in town. Right in the middle of town, at one of the watering holes, you will find the wooden Indians. They are just standing there waiting for someone to take there picture. If you get tired of browsing the stores you can always take a walk on the pier mentioned above. You can fish, drink wine and eat fried fish. The local chamber of commerce has a complete list of events and things to do Click Here for more information.
