Moonstone Beach Boardwalk
Covell Clydesdale Ranch
The spectacular ranch and the Clydesdales that reside there are beautiful, but mount up and you’ll be in for the ride of your life! The entire trail ride feels like it was created for Instagram, but make sure your camera is ready at the top of the hill—you’ll see the ocean from horseback, as well as scenery for miles around.
Old Santa Rosa Chapel
The Piedras Blancas elephant seal rookery is home to about 17,000 animals. Peak population is in early spring, but there are elephant seals stopping by to lounge year-round, enjoying their coastal residence.
Olallieberry pie at Linn’s
Before you dive into your decadent slice of olallieberry pie à la mode at Linn’s, pause to take a photo—the delicious, local berries and melting ice cream will stand out on your feed (and probably make some of your followers drool with envy).
Piedras Blancas Light Station
This historic lighthouse is beautiful from every angle, and even the views of the coastline are worth an Instagram post. Pro-tip: take a sunset or whale-watching tour for the opportunity to snap extra special pics!
Nitt Witt Ridge
This entire house is art in action. The original owner carved the dwelling out of a hill and built a residence unlike any other using remnants from Hearst Castle construction and eclectic debris. The impressive blend of native materials and contemporary elements is a must-see and a must-post.
