Touted as one of the “Happiest Places in America,” San Luis Obispo is a special town full of outdoor epicurean and cultural adventures. Tucked between the Coast Range and the Pacific, San Luis Obispo, or “SLO,” offers all the spoils of life. A Mediterranean marine climate, a world-class wine region, a spectacular view of thousands of acres of protected open space, an award-winning downtown filled with charming shops, restaurants and hotels placed inside turn-of-the-century mercantile buildings and a dynamic nightlife are all on tap for travelers. Known as a vibrant and walkable college town, stroll downtown to experience SLO Creek, the beautifully restored Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, museums, a world-famous weekly farmers market and more. Located just minutes from pastoral Edna Valley wine country and the coast, visitors can easily go from downtown to vineyard to beach within minutes.
