We are very excited for this weekend ride to California's Central Coast with luscious, technicolor landscapes. The roads are magnificent and offer tons of amazing sights to stop and explore. We'll be staying in Cambria, a scenic coastal town near Hearst Castle, Solvang, and Paso Robles. The sunsets here are incredible.

Nearby, lies the coastal town of San Simeon, home to that famous fixer-upper built by Randolph Hearst. The castle is open for tours so we may get to see the stunning pool, but please don't bring swimsuits. Like the rest of this residence, the pool is for admiring only.

We'll also be visiting Solvang, a Danish town that might invoke a sense of Twilight Zone as you step off your motorcycles and into an authentic Danish village. Aside from fun photo ops, this place offers all the things to make a Dane feel right at home. Bakeries serve up traditional Danish treats and a windmill provides lots of photo ops. There's even a Solvang Vintage Motorcycle Museum that features dozens of classic American, Japanese and European motorbikes. Just don't expect to find any wooden motorcycle boots here!

We may even stop at the Madonna Inn, a quirky, kitschy roadside hotel renowned for its themed rooms, unique restaurant, and bespoke bar. No matter how you slice it, this place is a visual treat that's worth the stop so you can check this one off your bucket list.


We have a block of discounted rooms available at the beautiful Pelican Inn on the ocean in Cambria. Call soon to reserve your room and be sure to tell them you are with San Jose IMRG. There is a 48-hour cancellation policy on reservations.
