Here is the final draft of the entire publication: 



What to do in and around Los Osos / Baywood Park?   Visitors and locals will find out with their new Los Osos Pocket Planner, the insider's guide for enjoying our area.  Filled with all the best things to do in town (dining, maps, entertainment, Montaña de Oro, getting out on the water, Elfin Forest, Baywood Monday Market, concerts and events, etc.). 

Pocket sized and packed with stunning photography, 25,000 of these keepsake booklets will be printed and will be distributed all year at: 

  • All Los Osos hotels (Back Bay Inn, Baywood Inn, and Sea Pines Golf Resort)
  • Many local vacation rentals 
  • Los Osos Chamber of Commerce
  • Key retail locations
  • At all advertisers' locations 


This is a small sized booklet (5.5" high and 4" wide), but packs a big punch.  Our market research and testing over the past 2 years have proven that people love the handy size and will keep the booklet in their pockets, purses, car visors, nightstands, etc.
