From Romantic Cooking Classes and Sunset Kayaking to Ziplining over Vineyards and a Fun Way to Pop the Question, Unplug and Reconnect on California's Central Coast*
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In our fast-paced, fairly routinized world, it's hard to find time for true romance.

In a place often ranked among the happiest regions, our laid-back attitude and child-like sense of adventure will rub off, and you'll remember what the good life is all about.
