Atascadero is a lovely town of approximately 27,000, located in Central California, about 15 miles north of San Luis Obispo and 17 miles inland from Morro Bay. It is near Highway 101 and the Pacific Ocean. The city sits among gently rolling hills and native California oaks in a picturesque area that is home to many farms, orchards and wineries. Atascadero Lake, Lake Naciemento and Santa Margarita Lake all offer a variety of recreational opportunities, and the wineries offer tasting and touring. There are also four public golf courses near Atascadero, and the town is home to the famous Charles Paddock Zoo and Atascadero Lake Park. The lake is a popular spot for many community events, including Tuesday Evenings in the Park Barbecue and a free band concert series, held throughout the summer months. Nearby, the Los Padres National Forest offers miles of hiking trails and hundreds of miles of back roads are perfect for cyclists. Altascadero is also host to a weekly Farmer's Market, held every Wednesday evening, year round. The Pacific Coast beaches are just a short drive away and offer swimming, fishing, surfing and sightseeing. Other special events include the annual Atascadero Wine Festival, usually held in June, Colony Days & Tent City in October and the Pine Mountain Festival, which takes place in April in Stadium Park in Atascadero.

Atascadero Weather & Climate

The Salinas Valley, located in Central California, approximately 25 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, is home to Lake Nacimiento, and towns such as Kings City and Paso Robles. This area of rich, fertile farmlands and lush forest has been dubbed the "Salad Bowl of the Nation." The climate experiences greater contrasts in seasons than coastal areas, although the weather is greatly influenced by the Pacific Ocean. It has warmer summers and cooler winters than cities located right along the coast, and receives approximately 11.27 inches of rainfall per year in the winter months. Trace amounts of rain falls between April and October. Afternoon sea breezes are common, with low clouds and fog nearer the coast. The area is home to many natural hot springs and grapes grown for wine thrive in the local climate.
