Nipomo seems like a small stop on Highway 101, though when you exit and explore, you'll discover, it is really quite a town. Though hotels hardly exists, the residential and golf opportunities are known throughout California and attract golfers to a Central Coast visit.

The road sign next to Interstate Highway 101 provides a look thatt's somewhat rural. The road sign for Nipomo on the Central Coast also shows the town offers community activities and organizations for residents and tourists to enjoy.

Nipomo is one of the fastest growing little cities on the Central Coast. It's nearest neighbor to the south is Santa Maria and it's town border is not far from the Santa Maria stock car race track.  As you drive through Nipomo on Highway 101, you may see a lot of activity on weekends when the Nipomo Swap Meet is held.  We haven't been there in a while but found it mostly sold t-shirts and other such items the last time we visited it.

What Nipomo is becoming noted for are its golf courses golf course communities.  Just on the verge of plopping down some cool cash on a golf course home, it was sooooo tempting to want to have that two-story property with ocean views, lake views and views of one of the holes of the course outside your kitchen and living room.  There are many such houses in Nipomo, located a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. The lifestyle is laid back and appeals to those ready to leave the rat race of LA or the Bay Area.  There isn't a lot to do at night, save some restaurants, bars, and movie theaters.  Retirees love it, as do kids who grew up in the city and tire of commuting and waiting in long lines.

So if this road stop looks a bit empty in the picture above, it represents the grasses and trees, and things you can take time to enjoy in Nipomo.
