Exploring Downtown Cayucos
Great Places To Go, See, Eat, Drink, and More
Cayucos, California is one of the state’s last unspoiled beach towns — still possessed of the charm and history that’s defined it for more than 150 years. Our community has a rich past, and a promising future. Our laid-back vibe and welcoming atmosphere are renowned within the state, and visitors from all over the world have made our shores a must-stop when visiting the west coast.
Downtown Cayucos is a breezy, walkable district featuring quaint and quirky storefronts, boutique shopping, a multitude of great dining options, art galleries, and upbeat taverns. A stroll down Ocean Avenue will have you peeking in windows, ducking into cafés, and making friends everywhere you go. Our mild year-round weather means there’s almost always a street festival or vendor fair on the calendar, so there’s never a bad time to visit. And, of course, you’re never more than a quick stroll from the beach, regardless of where you are in town.
The city’s wide range of restaurants offers locals and visitors alike a nearly endless range of cafés and eateries, covering nearly every style of world cuisine — so no matter what you’re craving, we’ve always got your table ready.
In the market for a little retail therapy? Our unique shopping opportunities will provide you with a nearly-endless hunt for hidden gems and fun treasures. While here, be sure to visit Main Street Antiques, which stocks a deep selection of collectibles, furniture, and other vintage items. The twin Remember When Antique Malls also give shoppers a chance to peruse the best of the past. Good Clean Fun Surf and Sport Shop is the place to go for surf and beachwear.
Downtown is also the location of fun seasonal events like the Sea Glass Festival, Cayucos Food & Wine Festival, and Cayucos Farmers Market. There’s always something happening here!
