Valentine's Day will be here before you know it, and what better place to spend it than on California’s beautiful Central Coast? Before you buy any jewelry or make five-star reservations someplace else, consider a relaxing night on the town. During the weekend before Valentine’s day, Atascadero is offering some sweet and simple events guaranteed to be great fun for locals and visitors alike.
Bring a sweetheart to Atascadero’s Sweetheart Stroll and explore downtown Atascadero. On February 8, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. stroll through local shops while tasting wines from over 15 wineries. While exploring, enjoy some great local food and take a complimentary tour of Historic City Hall. For more event and ticket information click here.
Did you know that male Adelie penguins will search a peach for the perfect pebble to “propose” to a potential mate? Learn more about how animals communicate their love to each other by attending Woo at the Zoo! Woo at the Zoo is an educational event at the Charles Paddock Zoo on February 9, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Woo at the Zoo is sure to be fun for the whole family, make an animal themed Valentine and meet ambasador animals.

If you’re still looking for more, the City of Atascadero has something for everyone. Walk with loved ones through first class art exhibits, drink from local coffee shops, hike Stadium Park, or catch a movie.
Regardless of where you find yourself this Valentine’s Day, make sure you take some time to let the important people in your life know you love them!
