Live It Up in Lompoc

Spring marks the perfect time to spend some quality time in Lompoc: uncrowded beaches, picturesque winding country roads and a blooming flower scene. Whether you are checking out commercial flower fields or heading out on wildflower hikes, check out the Bloom Tracker for the most up-to-date details. For a beach retreat seven days a week, Jalama Beach is a scenic 30-minute drive from Lompoc (and only $10 per vehicle) where visitors can beat the crowds for surfing, kite surfing, nature photography, fishing and hiking–there’s even a bird estuary. While there, grab a famous Jalama Burger from the on-site grill!

La Purisima Mission State Park

Another can’t-miss is La Purisima Mission State Park, a nearly 2,000-acre park that is home to California’s most extensively restored mission. Enjoy a free guided tour, 25 miles of trails for hiking and horseback riding and be sure to say hello to the livestock.
