A no-snow winter wonderland in the Central Coast

If you don’t want to spend the entire winter holiday season shovelling snow, then Central Coast is for you! Famous as “the playground of two cities.” New South Wale’s Central Coast is a vast and scenic stretch of coastline between Newcastle and Sydney.


Central Coast has plenty of exciting destinations for relaxation and adventure for you, friends, or loved ones this coming winter. Here are some Central Coast attractions and activities that you should definitely try when you go here:

Winter WonderSLO.

Since 2011, Winter WonderSLO Ice Skating has been the Central Coast’s traditional holiday place. Complete with dandy holiday decorations and colourful, twinkling lights, rest assured that you’ll be skating in San Luis Obispo’s magical version of a winter wonderland.

The link opens from December 18 until January 3, including Christmas Eve, Christmas, and even New Year!

Avila Valley Barn.

The Avila Valley Bard is a one-stop shop for everything seasonal. This magical place is packed from October till December. You can purchase anything from homemade pies, cookbooks, to local organic products.

It’s open throughout the year, but gets even more exciting during fall and winter. You can feed the animals in the petting zoo, get country hay rides, or even sign up for a pony ride. A quick tip: arrive early on weekends.

Mission Plaza.

Santa Clause has come to town! You can visit Santa’s house in San Luis Obispos, starting November 27th. After your visit with the jolly Santa, take a ride on the Classic Carousel and enjoy other holiday-themed family and friendly activities, and don’t forget to get a picture with Santa!

The Mission Plaza is within the Holiday Parade, which parades in the streets of Downtown San Luis Obispo on December 4th from 7pm-9pm.

Pismo Beach Holiday Harmony and Tree Lighting.

Come to the free annual Pismo Beach Holiday Harmony and Tree lighting and enjoy the cool beach winter night. The event will also have snow on the pier to play with, a bounce house, crafts, cookie decorating with hot drinks, and of course, Santa and his village. The lighting ceremony starts at 6pm.

After the event, Pismo Beach will be filled with festive decorations, fun shopping, and a whole lot of holiday food.

I want to stay in Central Coast

The Central Coast is currently an area of rapid growth and the current economic investments are making sure that the region gets the infrastructure necessary for the future. And with all the fun activities and experiences you can do in Central Coast, along with its wonderful attractions and lifestyle, it’s no wonder many arrived just for vacation and ended up buying their own homes.

If you’re considering to make good use of your investment. Now’s the time to utilize it in properties. Most people looking to purchase real estate in Central Coast turn to top property listing providers, which provide leasing and houses for rent specific to the surrounding areas of the Central Coast.

No matter the type of lifestyle you have, you will find an area in Central Coast that suits you. A quick trivia: If you’re wondering if it ever snowed on the Central Coast, the answer is YES! It happened in 1965.

A little more than three months to go before the holiday season, time to get ready!
