Downtown Atascadero

Explore Downtown Atascadero


Welcome to Downtown Atascadero, the heart of this friendly city with a classic California feel. There’s something for everyone here, whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, with friends, or the entire family.


Culture, Shopping, and Dining

Chat over coffee at one of our locally-owned shops, take in the art at some of the best galleries on the Central Coast, and enjoy dining at farm-to-table restaurants. Go shopping at our charming boutique shops and then explore the Sunken Gardens, Atascadero Visitor’s Center, and Historic Atascadero City Hall.


Family-friendly features

Some other fun options include embarking on the Atascadero Brews and Burgers Trail, featuring a handful of local breweries and a cider house, or going to the movies at our state-of-the-art Galaxy Theatres.


Outdoor adventures

Nature lovers can hike Stadium Park, which is within walking distance of downtown and has several miles of oak-tree-dotted trails.

Last, but not least, a short drive south of downtown will take you to the beautiful Atascadero Lake, Faces of Freedom Veterans Memorial, and Charles Paddock Zoo, the only zoo on the Central Coast.
