California’s Folk Wine Country: Must See in Paso Robles (Photos)

A photo guide of what you must see in Paso Robles, California by photographer Andy To and blogger Stephanie Be.

Must See Paso Robles - California folk wine country. Photo guide and travel tips. From the travel blog Travel-Break.net“No GPS, just follow the path or secret instructions…”

As Andy To recreated his experience in California’s folk wine country — his story vividly came to life. Well, it came to life with VSCO-like filters, but we’ll say vividly.

It’s that time where TravelBreak has grown beyond myself! Since I can’t be everywhere at the same time, fellow visual storyteller Andy To scouted the mysterious lands between Big Sur and Pismo Beach on behalf of team TravelBreak.

If you’re a lover of #liveauthentic, Paso Robles is the relaxed alternative to NorCal’s posh Napa Valley. Off the beaten path, wind between the mountains and coast to find a castle, zebras, olive tastings, and a glass-half-full mentality, as well as a few actual half-empty glasses of wine.
