Home to friendly folks and a slower pace of life, it’s no wonder Oprah named San Luis Obispo (SLO) one of the “Happiest Places in America”! With rolling green hills and a celebrated downtown Farmers’ Market, you can do it all from hiking and biking to fine dining and perusing artisan shops. Moments from award-winning wine country, Highway 1, and the Performing Arts Center, there’s truly something for everyone in SLO.
A perfect coastal climate and first-class wine region, this warm and welcoming community is home to spectacular scenery and small town roots, all only a quick drive (or bike!) from both sunny beaches and sweeping vineyards planted with cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and many more varieties.
In fact, you’ll find over 30 phenomenal tasting rooms to explore in San Luis Obispo’s celebrated wine country. From charming family-owned favorites to luxurious estate destinations, you’re sure to discover a style and setting for every mood.
Downtown SLO features desirable shops, art galleries, family-friendly children’s museums, and historical cultural centers—plus a wide number of outdoor dining choices where you can unwind creekside with good company. Live music, craft breweries, and New York Times’ celebrated cocktail bars are sure to keep you entertained all year long.
A friendly college town (go Cal Poly Mustangs!) and outdoor lover’s paradise, SLO is vibrant and easy to navigate by bike or stroll on foot. Home to dozens of hiking trails with epic views, there’s an adventure for everyone at any level. You won’t want to miss the carefully restored Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa or the acclaimed Thursday night farmer’s market where you’ll find plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, locally-grown honey, hometown barbeque, and so much more.
An extraordinary place to plant roots of your own, you’ll simply love living in San Luis Obispo.
