Our number one recommendation for being a savvy traveler in this road tripper’s paradise of California’s Central Coast is that is you Take. Your. Time. This is a vast area (roughly 13,000 square miles), and it takes time to experience it fully. It would take 8-10 hours to drive straight through, although we don’t recommend doing that. Allow yourself the time and opportunity to explore and discover something new. Spend at least 2-4 days in each region. The Central Coast is about taking the time to enjoy. And it’s worth every second.

Road trip fun

You’ll never get bored in the car with all the beautiful scenery the Central Coast has to offer.  But, take some time for shenanigans and good memories.  Below are a few games, playlists and a coloring page for your litles!

 “While you were Sleeping”

The Game: Create the most believable story when someone falls asleep

The Rules:

• First, a passenger must fall asleep

• After five minutes of slumber, the awake passengers begin creating a story

• Each person takes turns adding to the story

• Once the passenger wakes up, you have to get them to believe the story

• If somebody breaks character, they lose a point

• If somebody goes off script, you ask, “Are you sure?” and then that person is silenced and loses two points

• If you successfully fool the person, each storyteller wins three points

• If the sleeping passenger fools the car and joins their story correctly, they steal their current point total

• The one with the most points at the destination wins

“The Singing Game.”

The Game: Connect song lyrics for a fun sing-along game

The Rules:

• One person starts singing a song

• Using a lyric from the song, the next person has to connect it with another song

• It continues on until somebody messes up the lyrics or is stumped


• “I kissed a girl and I…”

• “…Really, really, really like you…”

• “…Doing that thing you do, breaking my heart into a million…”
