Arroyo-Grande is located on the central coast of California, about midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. This historic village offers a unique turn-of-the-century downtown area that is filled with antique shops, specialty shops and restaurants. The town is known for its many annual festivals and a weekly Farmer's Market that is held every Saturday from noon to 2:30 p.m. Other things to do include taking the town's Historic Walking Tour or a wine tasting tour of the area's fine wineries. There are dozens of recreational activities available within minutes of the village, such as rock climbing, hiking, biking, surfing, fishing and golf. The annual Strawberry Festival in Arroyo Grande features the area's most famous crop. Called "The Premiere Festival of the Central Coast," this special event has been held on Memorial Day Weekend since 1983. Other festivals include an old-fashioned Fourth of July in the Village celebration, the Arroyo Grande Valley Car Show, which is the largest car show on the Central Coast and the Annual Book & Author Festival in August. An annual Harvest Festival & Parade has been an annual event in Arroyo Grande since 1937. Usually held the last weekend in September, the Harvest Festival features arts, crafts, games, lots of good food and entertainment and agricultural exhibits. The holiday season is welcomed on the last weekend of November with a Christmas Concert and Parade. In addition, during the month of December, the village is transformed into a fairyland of lights where Santa strolls through the streets daily.

Arroyo Grande Weather & Climate

A Mild, Mediterranean climate describes the central coast of California that lies between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The area near San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach enjoys over 300 days of sunshine per year and very pleasant temperatures year round. The terrain is made up of sandy beaches, gently rolling hills and sand dunes, lush foliage and vineyards. Cool ocean breezes keep temperatures from becoming too hot in the summertime. Low clouds and patchy fog are common on summer days, but it almost always burns off by midday. Conditions are very dry, and the occasional summer thunderstorm produces so little precipitation that range and forest fires often result from lightening strikes. In winter, the semi-permanent Pacific Ocean high retreats bringing rain into the area from November through March. These storms are widespread and at times heavy.
