San Luis Obispo
San Luis Obispo. It’s probably that one place in life we’ll never live, but always wish we had. Sorta like Sonoma.
With an abundance of protected state parks, pristine beaches, miles of cycling, hiking, alternative transportation routes,and an inviting climate year-round, we love San Luis Obispo, CA and think it’s a nature-lover’s heaven and we’re so jealous someone lives here and it isn’t us. Wait, did we say that already?

Located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, downtown San Luis Obispo, CA is not only a beautiful sleepy town with enough green to make you breathe in the sweet smell of earth and trees, but it’s also the cultural hub of the scenic Central Coast of California with wineries and restaurants catering to lovers and families escaping the stress of the big cities to the north and south. Its numerous downtown hotels offer an ideal home base for trips to wine country, Hearst Castle, Mission San Luis Obispo, the Thursday Evening Farmer’s Market, and more (including our personal favorite… the amazing Madonna Inn).
