During the last week that my husband was out on paternity leave, we decided that we wanted to do something memorable before he headed back to work.  After a bit of searching on the HotelTonight app [genius concept, btw!], we settled on staying at The Cliffs Resort, located right between Pismo Beach and Avila Beach.
