Relax in air-conditioned comfort and leave the driving to us! Back by popular demand, the Central Coast Quilt Shop Tour is once again offering a Bus Tour to all 10 stores. Split into 2 relaxing days, visit 5 stores to the south on Friday, May 31st and 5 stores to the north on Saturday, June 1st. Our wonderful hostess will assist you with check-in and passports at each shop so that you can enjoy your shopping. Bus Tour participants will enjoy a minimum of 45 minutes at each store.

Purchase Bus Tour Tickets here

Please note that the two bus tour days can be purchased separately.  If you wish to enjoy the bus tour for both days, you will need to purchase a separate ticket for each day.

The Bus Tour departs each day from The Radisson Hotel at 3455 Skyway Drive in Santa Maria. Bus Tour ticket holders must meet at the hotel entrance at 8:30 am, and the bus leaves promptly at 9am.

A block of rooms is available at The Radisson if you are coming from a distance and would like to make a reservation to stay overnight. Please call the hotel directly at 805-928-8000 for reservations and to request the Central Coast Quilt Shop special rate of $139.00 per night for a double queen room. Please note that rooms must be booked by April 25 to receive the special rate.

If you would like to grab a bite to eat or a beverage before your bus tour, the Radisson has options. The Atrium Bistro serves breakfast from 6-11am Monday through Saturday, and Bob & Hardy's Cafe Corner offers coffee and espresso drinks from 6am - 10pm. Dinner is also available at the Vintner's Grill daily from 4-10pm.
