Central Coast of California

hearst-castleAtascadero is located in northern San Luis Obispo County, California. If you travel from out of the area to train with STR you should plan on staying a few more days to enjoy the Central Coast. If you are interested in more shooting there are some nice public indoor and outdoor ranges in the area. If you want a change of pace from the range, this area has plenty of great beaches, lakes and golf courses to relax on.

There are several wineries and micro brewaries in the immediate area, as well as nice hotels.

The city of San Luis Obispo has a great downtown with plenty of night life, great restaurants, breweries and wine tasting. This area has many outdoor activities to offer so bring your mountain bike, road bike, climbing gear and hiking boots.

Check out The Hearst Castle In San Simeon, check out the Sea Lions, drive up the coast to Big Sur. The Central Coast of California is one of the most beautiful areas in the world. If you train with us you will want see more of the Central Coast.
