Referred to by locals as SLO, this city is the core of the Central Coast. One of California’s oldest communities, the city overflows with culture and preserved early California architecture.
A vibrant and quaint downtown draws many tourists to experience the eclectic scene of boutique shops and restaurants. Many events and concerts are held throughout the year at the historic Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa and at the Performing Arts Center at California Polytechnic State University. Farmer’s Market is a highly popular event held every Thursday featuring live music and local farmers selling an array of produce and goods.
