Atascadero is a homey town located up the Cuesta Grade and inland more than other cities in San Luis Obispo County. As a result, it usually experiences warmer, drier summers, and cooler winters than other nearby cities such as San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach. The beautiful oaks, rolling hills and the many deer are a part of the magic of A-town. Route 41 runs right through this town making it easy to take a quick drive to Morro Bay or Cayucos. A-Town is close to beaches and the famous wineries of Paso Robles and Templeton.
