I think I will wrap up the last of the vacation recommendations.  Needless to say we had a great time and here are the final great spots we hit in no particular order:

Morro Bay, CA The weather was wonderful, although a bit foggy.  It is a small town that makes you start looking at home prices.  Kids learning to surf on the beach, small local shops, friendly people, and an otter met us by the bay just to say “Hi” as he was banging his dinner on a rock.  Make sure to go to La Parisienne Bakery and get some fresh breakfast sandwiches to go and head on over to the beach and watch some surfers or go play in the sand!

Solvang, CA is a wonderful little Danish Town in Central-Southern California.  Even though we got there just as the shops were about to close (Did hubby plan that?) it still is a fun little town to visit.  It thrives on tourism but still has so much character!  Don’t forget to go to Wheel Fun Rental for a bike ride.  Oh, and arrive early to pick up a danish too 🙂

Apple Farm Mill Housein San Luis Obispo is a restaurant that has been around awhile.  They are now part of a corporation entity but it is such a beautiful place and the food is quite good too.  Don’t forget to go the the little gift house where they make the homemade ice cream.  All the restaurant ice cream is made on the premises!

Portillo’s Hot Dogsin Buena Park.  If you are from Chicago, or are familiar with Italian Beef’s, this is a must.  It even passed my brother’s review and that is no easy task!

El Capitan Canyon near Santa Barbara, CA.  If you can swing staying here, cost wise, it will be memorable.  These are  yurt style tents and cabins in a beautiful setting.  There is a pool, bikes to ride, and many places to hike.  If you like the outdoors you would love this upscale version of camping!  If you can’t stay there, go there for a lunch.  It was yummy!

That’s all Folks. 

Have a “Recommended” Day!
