Arroyo Grande, affectionately known to locals as AG, is replete with farms, ranches, wineries and flowered-covered fields. AG is also home to Lopez Lake, a recreation area consisting of 4,200 acres of open space, trails and camping areas. A network of equestrian, bike and hiking trails criss-cross the park which is primarily oak woodland and coastal sage scrub. The area is frequented by black bears, mountain lions, mule deer and a number of other small mammals.
Downtown AG provides provides amazing local dining and shopping options, including Rooster Creek, Alphy's Brolier, Doc Burnstein's Ice Cream Lab and Klondike Pizza.
