Day By Day Itinerary:
Day 1
Sunday, 10/17/2021 - Coastal Train Ride
We set out from our departure points this morning for the tranquility of California's Central Coast. We'll travel by deluxe motorcoach to downtown Los Angeles’ Union Station to board Amtrak’s Coast Starlight train for a memorable five-hour rail journey along California’s spectacular coastline and through its fertile valleys to San Luis Obispo. We’ll travel along Point Conception and through Vandenberg Air Force Base where you’ll see the launch complexes and beautiful undeveloped coastline only visible by train. You are free to move around the train, get lunch from the snack bar or enjoy a waiter-served lunch on your own in the dining car (based on availability). Check out the view from the observation car or just relax in your reclining seat. Upon arrival in San Luis Obispo, our motorcoach will be waiting to take us the short distance to the charming Apple Farm Inn – our accommodations for the next two nights. Nestled by San Luis Obispo Creek and surrounded by rolling hills, the Apple Farm Inn is a “country rustic,” AAA Four Diamond, Victorian-style inn situated among a lush, quiet garden setting. The Inn blends the country charm of yesteryear with all of the modern comforts of today including a seating nook and fireplace in every comfy cozy room and a heated pool year round. Enjoy time to explore the grounds which feature strolling pathways through lush gardens, a working waterwheel attached to an authentic mill house and apple trees with apples to pick! The gift shop is full of wonderful treasures including home decorations, trinkets, and novelty items. The bakery features fresh baked cookies, eclairs, lemon bars, pies and their famous hot apple dumplings that are ooey gooey, delicious, and have just the right amount of sweetness. Enjoy the Inn’s complimentary wine reception prior to dinner on your own at the Apple Farm Inn Restaurant – the warm and inviting farmhouse-inspired restaurant that exudes country charm and rustic elegance thanks to vintage Americana decorations.
