lodginglodging reservations in Lompoc

Only the residents know how beautiful this place is. The average person is zooming by on Hwy 101 at 70 mph looking at the exit signs, mouthing "loam-poke", "lumpok", hmmmm "lome-pock"? No matter how you say it, this region is the real start of rural central coast beauty when driving northbound. Take the Highway 1 exit - near the tunnels & start wandering. The coastal mountain range, the wildlife and wildflowers, the wineries and canyons, the cliffs, the rugged coastline, the mild weather... are just to name a few delights.
