Itinerary

Day 1 Depart for the Central Coast of California with the Christmas Spirit in every place we visit. Our first stop will be downtown Santa Barbara, where we can stretch our legs while seeing the town decorated for the holidays. Then enjoy downtown Paso Robles for dinner on your own and explore local shops and bouquets of this artistic, cultural and historic place before traveling to our hotel. Our overnight accommodations for the next two nights will be at the SpringHill Suites Paso Robles Atascadero.

Day 2 Today spend some time exploring the northern coast of California. As we travel along the coast, see the rich vegetative hills meet the sea with scenic grandeur, allowing us to admire the natural beauty. We spend time in the unique town of Cambria to enjoy the festive ambiance as the village celebrates the season. Then it’s off to explore CHRISTMAS AT HEARST CASTLE. This was one of William Randolph Hearst’s favorite holidays. The enchanted Holiday Twilight Tour will show you the setting by which Hearst entertained his guests on a grand scale. This tour will take visitors through the grounds, Casa del Mar guest house, and the grand social rooms on the ground floor of Casa Grande, glittering with holiday cheer. Each

room contains lavish decorations of hand-made garlands, brilliant red poinsettias, and two
18-foot, fully decorated Christmas trees with lights and traditional ornaments. Our evening is a holiday favorite as we visit a German themed Cambria Christmas Market. This traditional Christmas market has over 2 million lights, live music, and food and craft
vendors. B, D

Day 3 We leave our hotel and travel south until we arrive in Solvang. “The Danish Capital of America” is fully decorated for their Winterfest Celebration. You will have time to shop and have lunch on your own. As we head home with all the sights and sounds of this tour, you will surely have the Spirit of Christmas in your heart. B
