Worth the Drive: Wine, Waves, & Beyond

Worth the Drive is our twice weekly look at nearby getaways



    Smart Home Technologies That Are Changing the Game
    Cliffs Resort
    The Cliffs Resort is part of the Wine, Waves, & Beyond weekend in Pismo Beach.

    Your job: Decide to get out of town and fast. Our job: Help you find where you're headed. This week, Worth the Drive takes us to...

    Wine, Waves & Beyond: If you're a fan of Central Coast vinos, you're in luck. If you're a surf scholar, you're in luck. If you follow both, chances are very good you're reading this from Pismo Beach, where Wine, Waves, & Beyond unfurls over the June 3-6 weekend.

    Highlights: The Barrel to Barrel tasting at the perched-above-the-Pacific Cliffs Resort (beer is part of the evening in addition to wine). The surf movie night in nearby San Luis Obispo. A Brewmasters Dinner is on the schedule, and, naturally, a longboard competition adjacent to the famous Pismo Pier.

    VW Bus Display: Part of the longboard competition on Sunday, June 6. Got to have your VW on the coast.

    The Cliffs Resort: There's a package going that includes breakfast each morning for two and Barrel to Barrel tickets. Packages begin at $559. We checked in with the hotel and there are just a few rooms left for Friday, but they said to inquire about single-night rates.

    Not too far: Hearst Castle. Have you heard about the new you-go-it-on-your-own tour?
