America's Best Main Streets

Higuera Street

Where: San Luis Obispo, California

Sandwiched between Los Angeles and San Francisco, San Luis Obispo often gets lost in the shuffle. But the city boasts a rich history dating back to the 19th century and a lively downtown area. The main thoroughfare, Higuera Street, features quaint indoor plazas that border a rippling creek, and nearby Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa hosts some of the town’s most popular festivals. Don’t miss the Farmers’ Market held weekly on Thursday night and Saturday morning. Visitors can browse stands selling flowers, vegetables, and produce, and snack on crepes, pizza, or barbeque while enjoying live music.
