Cayucos named one of 'America's coolest small towns' by Budget Travel magazine

Cayucos is featured in the October issue of Budget Travel magazine as one of “America’s Coolest Small Towns.”

“Cayucos is everything you want in a mellow beach town – an anomaly on the increasingly built-up coast,” according to the article, which is also published on BudgetTravel.com. “While the vibe is decidedly relaxed, two things get residents fired up: serious waves and serious food.”

The article features the Brown Butter Cookie Company, the historic Cass House Inn and Rogue Wave Café.

The Brown Butter Cookie Company, owned by sisters Christa Hozie and Traci Nickson, has been selling signature brown butter seasalt cookies for nearly two years, according to Hozie. The shop was featured in the February edition of Gourmet magazine and in The New York Times.

Other small towns featured in the article include Breaux Bridge, La., Lexington, Va. and Tubac, Ariz.
