Why Paso Robles Made a Big Must-Visit List for 2020

••• Paso Robles is #6 on the New York Times‘s list of 52 places to travel this year, due to the “Sensorio” light installation (up through June), Hotel Cheval‘s forthcoming expansion, and the new Piccolo hotel and Les Petites Canailles restaurant. “And Paso Market Walk [rendering above], a 16,000-square-foot marketplace, is expected to open this year—bringing a bakery, microbrewery, gelateria, vegan cheese shop, olive oil tasting room, coffee roasters and artisanal, local specialties to Paso.”

••• “Paso Robles hasn’t allowed tattoo parlors since 1994—but that could change soon.” —San Luis Obispo Tribune

••• “United Airlines is adding direct routes to Los Angeles International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, and Denver International Airport from Santa Maria.” —KEYT

••• “On Tuesday, Alaska Airlines began daily non-stop service from San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport to America’s Finest City,” which is apparently San Diego. “The one-hour flight is the fifth new destination added to the airport in the just the past 36 months. […] A sixth new market begins in mid-June when Alaska Airlines begins daily non-stop service to Portland, Oregon.” —KEYT

••• “West Coast Racers is the newest edition [sic] to Six Flags Magic Mountain. Topping speeds of 55 mph, riders are launched several times in what’s being a called a first of its kind racing roller coaster. ‘This is the first quadruple racing track, single coaster ever built,’ Park President Neal Thurman said. ‘The whole time you’re racing side-by-side with another coaster car on the track.'” —KEYT
