When was the last time you spent Fall at the El Colibri Hotel and Spa? With Fall in full swing, it’s time to pack your bags, load the car and get yourself over to California’s Central Coast.
You may be asking why Fall is special? In a largely agricultural community, Fall is the time to celebrate the harvest reaped from all the hard work of the many months prior. So, in a word: celebrations are the reason to visit. Well yes, the celebrations are plenty but on second thought there is also the turning of the leaves. Imagine driving down Hwy 46 and seeing nothing but miles and miles of vineyards, their leaves a melange of colors. As you weave your way through our golden hills, you’ll see fiery red, burnt orange, lemon yellow and hues of purple and brown as the vineyard leaves prepare to drop. It’s a sight equalled only by the leaves of New England.
So whether you are looking for a harvest celebration or a peaceful drive through wine country – Fall at the El Colibri Hotel and Spa is sure to be a wonderful visit.

cycling in Cambria
It’s the season, so why not Fall into Cambria, California? With acres and acres of countryside littered by vineyards, farm stands, and grazing cattle, it just doesn’t get much prettier than Autumn on the Central Coast. This is my favorite time of year to head off on the bike to explore the back roads of Cambria and the surrounding countryside.
One of my favorite rides this time of year is along Santa Rosa Creek Road. With each bend in this back country road a new surprise awaits. It might be a mother cow and her calf nursing, or a vineyard blazing with bright orange and red leaves. Last year I happened on a colony of plein aire artists rendering their version of the rolling countryside.
The folks at El Colibri Hotel know many of these lovely back roads and are only too happy to guide you in your discovery of Cambria’s seasonal treasures.
