Team Building

Santa Maria is a great location for team-building activities! Bond around a bonfire with s’mores and songs at a nearby beach, arrange a private bowling or softball tournament, or take a tour of our beautiful Central Coast in a limousine while participating in a team scavenger hunt. Add something unique to your meeting by having our famous Santa Maria Style Barbecue served at your event by one of the many barbecue houses or caterers in our area.

Sightseeing

The Santa Maria Valley is located midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on California’s beautiful Central Coast, where there are endless things see and do! We offer complimentary guides and maps to give you a great introduction to our area and what we have to offer your group tour or event attendees.
