Get fit in the fresh air doing these four fun things in Arroyo Grande 

Craving a new adventure filled with sunshine, fitness and thrills? Arroyo Grande is the perfect place to plan your next energizing excursion. Whether you prefer working out on land or at the lake, there’s something for everyone in this charming, eclectic town.

Escape to Lopez Lake

Rated one of Yelp’s top 10 best camping sites in San Luis Obispo County, Lopez Lake offers a range of outdoor activities. Cruise the lake’s sparkling waters in a boat or try your hand at windsailing. Take the family fishing for bass and catfish or enjoy a picnic in the nearby shade. Land-lovers looking to challenge themselves can tackle the lake’s surrounding trails by foot, mountain bike or even horse. Arroyo Grande’s pleasant Mediterranean climate makes Lopez Lake the ideal, year-round recreational destination.

Take it to the next level at SLO ULTRA

On Oct. 26 and 27, Lopez Lake will serve as home base to the annual SLO ULTRA Games and Trail Events! Embrace your inner warrior at this two-day, outdoor fitness adventure that features trail running, hiking, obstacle racing and a new, CrossFit-style competition. All fitness levels are welcome, and proceeds from the event will benefit the SLO County Sheriff’s Advisory Foundation and SLO County Parks.

Go for a hike with the whole family!

If you’re looking for something a little more leisurely (and dog-friendly), grab the family and head to Big Falls Trails or Cougar Trail Loop. Located just

north of Lopez Lake, Big Fall Trails promise lush, wooded scenery and—you guessed it—a beautiful, 40-foot double waterfall embedded in limestone rock. Cougar Trail Loop offers a quicker jaunt through the tranquil countryside and features a varied landscape of grasslands, forest, and even shoreline.

Tee off at Cypress Ridge Golf Course

Swing your clubs among the cypress trees at Arroyo Grande’s award-winning Cypress Ridge Golf Course.

The cool ocean breeze will keep you relaxed and focused as you make your way through the course’s 18 holes. It’s a great place to spend the day sinking puts, soaking in the sun and marveling at the stunning ocean views.

After you’re done experiencing Arroyo Grande’s outdoor wonders, celebrate another successful adventure with a handcrafted beverage and farm-to-table feast at one of our local breweries or restaurants. Arroyo Grande has some excellent flavors to savor. Try ordering pints and plates at Figueroa Mt. Brewing Company or sample the seasonal, gourmet entrees at Ember Restaurant.

Whatever you choose, Arroyo Grande is sure to satisfy.
