Quality of Life

Atascadero is located in the heart of the Central Coast, offering a blend of natural beauty and rural lifestyle. Its comfortable Mediterranean climate and atmosphere are influenced by the beautiful Pacific Ocean on the West, and also by the Salinas River and open countryside to the East. Local scenery includes oak-studded hills, vineyards, creeks, and scenic vistas of the Santa Lucia Mountains.

Our family orientated, mid-size community has a small-town feel yet is buzzing with new business and a resurging downtown of art galleries, unique shops, and eateries. The economy is growing with a focus on new and green industries and business that enhance the already high quality of life. The Charles Paddock Zoo, family-oriented Lake Park, Chalk Mountain Golf Course, other parks and shopping centers, and unique annual events provide several reasons to make Atascadero a great place to visit. Atascadero is located in the center of the Paso Robles AVA with immediate access to the vineyards and tasting rooms of the Edna Valley, Paso Robles, York Mountain and Santa Margarita. Atascadero is the perfect halfway stop not only between Los Angeles and San Francisco, but between the several established communities of San Luis Obispo County.
