Living on the Central Coast is all about family being the primary focus of activities and free time. When my wife and I brought our children to this area, we thought we would miss some of the more entertaining parts of the city. In fact, we drive to see the Dodgers, Lakers, Music Center and restaurants in L.A. once or twice a year. However, our most enjoyable activities are definitely found here, including our children’s sporting events, great restaurants and beaches and mountains out our back door. The pace of life allows us to relax more easily, to smell the flowers and to enjoy life more fully.
