Campground
“(Be ready for a day use parking fee of$5-6.00.)This is five minutes from us and has a moderately strenuous trail to Cerro Alto Peak which has 360 degree views; including the Nine Sisters that start at the coast with Morro Rock being the first visible volcanic mountain and six more going inland to the Cuesta Grade. There are two trails-one is short and steep; takes an hour and a half to the top-one is longer, easier to hike; takes about 2-3hrs to the top. Great half-day jaunt, but it can get hot! Bring water! Enjoy the Beauty!! Here's the website: https://campone.com/campgroundfinder/campground/california/cerro-alto-campground-and-dua/”

Zoo
“The small town zoo is fun to walk through and is next to a beautiful Veteran's Memorial park, lake and picnic grounds. A walk around the lake is very pleasant on our warm summer nights.”
