San Luis Obispo is a small city just inland from the California
coast. SLO for short, this town is located where coastal
travelers should not miss it – at the juncture of Highways 1 and
101. Although San Luis Obispo is not a beach community, there are
several reasons to stop at this city, including the very walkable
downtown. It is quaint and friendly – a college town with
Victorians. The nearby wineries are a great reason to use SLO as
a base camp while exploring the area.
