Family-Friendly Activities

Go On the Road with Jo as she explores family-friendly activities in Paso Robles.  

Greetings from family-friendly Paso Robles, California!

Nestled in the Santa Lucia Mountains of the Central California Coast midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, nearby beaches and Hearst Castle, Paso Robles offers moms, dads and kids a wide range of activities and comfortable family-friendly places to stay. Also, families will find many kid-friendly Paso Robles restaurants and wineries that offer bocce ball, cave tours, rail cars to explore and beautiful views!

Here's just a sampling of activities you can experience during your visit: 

  • Let the kids ride the waves and get wet and wild at Ravine Water Park
  • Crawl through a life-size oak tree, stomp "grapes" to make juice and shop for "fresh" fruits and veggies at a bi-lingual market, all under the roof of a Volunteer Firehouse at the Children's Museum
  • Experience the true Wild West at Harris Stage Lines where you'll learn about life on a ranch, take a ride in an authentic stagecoach, ride a horse, and maybe even rope a steer!  They also offer summer day and weekly horse camps.
  • Go on a treasure hunt in a real life castle in the sky at nearby Hearst Castle, the former home of media mogul William Randolph Hearst
  • Beckon your inner artist at Studios on the Park where you can paint, sew and even work with beeswax, visit local galleries and head to Studio MPK for kids art camp
  • Improve your swing at River Oaks Golf Course on the nation's only six-hole player development course ideal for kids (whether you're a novice or pro, you'll have some family fun!)
  • More information after the video...
