Nipomo offers a charming old-fashioned downtown featuring the deliciously world-famous Jocko's Steak House, and is home to three world-class golf courses, orchards laden with citrus and avocados, and fields of strawberries and flowers.

Oceano is a little California beach town at the edge of the largest dunes complex in the state. The Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area is the only place in California where visitors can drive on the beach and enjoy fun recreation opportunities from ATV cruising and horseback riding, to surfing and kayak fishing. The historic Oceano Train Depot served as a classic turn-of-the-century Type 22 train depot until 1973 and is now a history museum filled with a plethora of railroad artifacts.
