Paso Robles

Overview

About Paso RoblesAbout midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Paso Robles occupies the rolling hills of California's central coast. Originally a rest stop for travelers along El Camino Real, the settlement initially was known for the mineral hot springs in the surrounding area. In the 18th century Franciscan priests built the first mineral baths. The Paso Robles Inn, which opened in 1891, featured a hot springs plunge bath, which was used by world-renowned concert pianist and composer Ignace Paderewski in 1913 for treatment of his arthritis; other dignitaries staying at the inn have included Theodore Roosevelt and Clark Gable.

Some 200 wineries make this area one of California's fastest growing wine-producing regions. Lakes Nacimiento and San Antonio, northwest of town, offer boating, camping, fishing and water skiing. From Paso Robles, scenic SR 46 heads west to SR 1 and the coastal communities of San Simeon and Morro Bay. Twenty-five miles east of Paso Robles on SR 46 is Cholame, the small town where motion-picture legend James Dean died in an automobile accident; a stainless steel monument is beside the road.
