Small Historical Towns – California Central Coast

Two very different small towns in the Central Coast are graceful reminders of bygone days. Both are now artistic refuges, and rewarding to visit.

The Plaza Hotel on the square as seen from the Mission in San Juan Bautista.

The town of Harmony was named in celebration of resolving a feud among dairy farming families.
Sometimes a yearning to just be in a small historical town comes on a body. Luckily, that can be satisfied around the Central Coast of California. Look at some of our communities within the Pelican network site, and go get fulfilled.
