Paso Robles

This northern part of San Luis Obispo County has a uniqueness of its own. It is separated by a ridge of mountains locals call “the grade”. The two largest cities in North County are Paso Robles and Atascadero. You’ll find cowboys, Arabian horse farms, vineyards, award-winning wineries, almond orchards, and blue lakes. Less than a half hour away is Lake Nacimiento, a place with a wealth of water activities. Some of the more rural areas of North County have traditional Old West architecture that represent the history of the area.
