Paso Robles California is the heart of the Central Coast wine country. Rolling oak hills with vineyards, and close to the Central Coast, makes this an ideal location for an overnight stop. Summers can be triple digit heat, when downtown SLO is mild and mid 70's. Just so you know, these hills get hot. Wine tasting & a tour of Hearst Castle - all in one day from Paso. Historically known as "El Paso de Robles"
