Herds of wild horses and burros—about 400 in total—roam the 300-acre Return to Freedom sanctuary, where they're free to exhibit the natural behaviors and social structures they came to know in the wild. However, for many of the horses, it hasn't been an easy journey to their new home. Government roundups displaced these wild steeds from public lands, forcing many into auction, where they were sold off to the highest bidder. Their stories are harrowing, which is why Return to Freedom works tirelessly to help these wild horses resume their natural ways of life. Visitors of the sanctuary can observe these creatures on walking tours and safaris, getting up close and personal with the five herd families that traverse the lands.

Amid views of coastal dunes, the Morro Bay Estuary, and Morro Rock, golfers drive, pitch, and putt their way through the nine-hole executive course at Sea Pines Golf Resort. As native wildlife such as waterfowl dwell among the fairways, guests tee off for the afternoon or warm up on the driving range, two putting greens, or dedicated chipping area. Those who prefer to ride a well-trained horse rather than break a bucking golf cart can board their own equine friend at Sea Pines' stables and roam the 8,000-acre Montaña de Oro State Park. In addition, Sea Pines Golf Resort offers overnight stays for humans at The Lodge, whose spacious rooms overlook Morro Bay and the golf course's manicured landscape.
The Saucelito Canyon story begins in 1880, when three acres of Zinfandel vines were planted in the rugged terrain of the upper Arroyo Grande Valley on California’s Central Coast.

The beer craftsmen at Pismo Brewing Company slake thirst with a rotating array of six craft beers brewed in-house. In the tasting room, which is open seven days a week, bartenders pour pints of Pismo pale ale and the toasty, caramel-tinged Roadster red ale, complemented by a smattering of pub fare. Root beer is also available to fertilize the tubers of underage youngsters. The brewery's selection of logo-emblazoned T-shirts, hats, and sweatshirts displays affinity for craft brews and implicit disdain for lesser beverages, such as horse tears. Occasionally on Friday nights, the bass rumblings from live musical performances send ripples through pints of cool brews.
