Visit Downtown Paso Robles

“When you’re alone and life is making you lonely you can always go DOWNTOWN.
When you have worries, all the noise and the hurry seem to help, I know, DOWNTOWN.
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city.
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty, how can you lose.
The lights are much brighter there, you can forget all your troubles,
forget all your cares, so go DOWNTOWN!!!
Things will be great when you’re DOWNTOWN!!!
No finer place for sure. Everything’s waiting for you DOWNTOWN.”
~ Petula Clark, released in 1965 and Norma Moye’s cell phone ringtone 2018!

June is the gateway to summer. School’s out so it’s time to take a trip. With so many places to choose from it is inspiring to know Paso Robles is on top of the list for travelers all over the world. People come to discover our rich and seductive wine terroir, our enchanting olive oils and everything this beautiful area has to offer. DOWNTOWN is the unexpected highlight for visitors. They express excitement and joy, as well as surprise that such a charming community exists here on the Central Coast of California.

The City Park, home to the historic Carnegie Library, is surrounded by a variety of shops and restaurants. Our locals and visitors appreciate the heartfelt friendliness of everyone. The credit goes to the DOWNTOWN business owners who Rock It!!

DOWNTOWN is filled with vacationers. You know, the ones with nothing to do and all day to do it in! A couple from Seattle arrived on the Amtrak for a four-day visit. They make this trip several times a year to relax, eat, drink and shop. A Colorado couple drove to Paso to shop for interior items for the home they just built. Four ladies came to Paso from Carmel for their Spring Fling. They enjoy our spas, restaurants, downtown wine tasting and shopping. A return trip in the fall is in the works for holiday shopping. A couple stopped on their way to Palo Alto from France to visit their children & grandchildren. Just a brief stop to relax before continuing north. They are staying for two months and want to bring their family back to Paso Robles for a stay.

Everyday DOWNTOWN is full of the most wonderful people enjoying what we have. Don’t forget, Summer Solstice is on June 21st. This is the longest day of the year. Enjoy every minute! Time is all at once the most valuable and the most perishable of all our possessions.
