Country Living names Paso Robles one of the ’10 best small towns in America’
–Country Living magazine recently released their picks for the best small towns in America, and Paso Robles is included in the roundup. Read the recommendation here:
Paso Robles, CA
Local Lingo: “El Paso de Robles” (the Pass of the Oaks) is just “Paso” to locals.
This Central Coast town has plenty to boast about, with more than 200 wineries and award-winning restaurants. Yet “it is completely unpretentious,” says Alexis Negranti, founder of Negranti Creamery. “There’s a cowboy vibe. It’s fine to wear boots and a hat to a five-star spot.” Still, dressing up for a seat at, say, Les Petites Canailles, a recent addition from Michelin-starred chef Julien Asseo, wouldn’t be out of place. “In Paso, everyone is welcome, any way you are.” When you go, visit the new Paso Market Walk showcasing local makers, farmers, and vinters, and stay in a retro camper at Rêves de Moutons, located on a goat and sheep farm in the heart of wine country.
