Things to Do in Avila Beach & San Luis Obispo

Looking for things to do during your stay at Avila Village Inn? From hot springs and beaches to aquariums and butterfly groves, there are too many outdoor activities to list, and the Avila Village Inn is in the center of it all. And if our fine city doesn’t, nearby cities like Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo, and Arroyo Grande do. For recommendations on the best activities and attractions near our hotel, just ask our Concierge and they’ll point you in the right direction.

Explore Avila & Pismo Beach

A number of great Avila Beach attractions are less than 5 miles away from our hotel, including Avila Hot Springs, Central Coast Aquarium, and the Avila Beach Pier. Additional attractions like Pismo Beach, the Madonna Inn Expo Center, the Fremont Theater, and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo are just under 10 miles away.

If you’re looking for more of a daytrip adventure, we recommend visiting the Big Sur Coastline. Along this stunning coastline, you’ll find restaurants, art galleries, and amazing beaches, which may be hard to find, but are definitely worth the effort. Be sure to visit Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park in Big Sur, a park featuring redwood trees and an 80’ waterfall that drops from the granite cliffs into the ocean from the Overlook Trail.
