The Central Coast eclectic downtown, San Luis Obispo, is surrounded by residential neighborhoods and abundant outdoor recreation. Hiking in every direction, numerous parks, lagoons and beaches to enjoy. In downtown you can find art galleries to book stores, gift and coffee shops, the young, vibrant town is naturally shaded & a pleasant place to be. Free parking can be difficult to find. Downtown is built around a creek bed and a historic mission. The river walk area has many outdoor dining terraces overlooking the water, plus lots of vegetation & sidewalks meandering along the waters edge. Stay the whole weekend & bring your bike, since downtown is small & parking can be tight.

Cool college town with upscale downtown village, restaurants, shops & lots of trees. The creek meanders thru the downtown red brick buildings with walk ways & cafes nearby. Very beautiful setting. Let's not forget the must-see "Wall of Gum" (aka Bubble Gum Alley)
