This welcome center is a great place to stop and get information for all the attractions in the area. The staff is very welcoming and knowledgable. One thing I found interesting was a small section of the shop that has wine tasting.

The staff here were very efficient, warm and knowledgeable. It was so refreshing to be greeted enthusiastically and told about local restaurants and attractions. Furthermore, their restroom facilities are clean and bright and there is a wide range of merchandise to buy if you're interested.

Workers are friendly and knowledgeable. It's just the location. The Collection is a good place, but put the center up front by Target, Whole Foods or B of A. Not hidden in the back where it is hard to find.

Right off Highway 101 in the Collection. Great resource for travelers venturing up the Central Coast. Plenty of free parking and it is surrounded by shops and restaurants.
