Arroyo Grande is a city in San Luis Obispo County, California, United States. Get in touch with nature at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Elfin Forest Preserve. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bob Jones City to Sea Bike Trail and Pismo State Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Arroyo Grande side-trips: Los Osos (Bluff Trail, Montana de Oro State Park, & more). There's still lots to do: gear up at Gear Rentals, visit a coastal fixture at Point San Luis Lighthouse, play a few rounds at Cypress Ridge Golf Course, and explore the activities along Lopez Lake Campground (entrance).

For traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Arroyo Grande tour planner.
