San Luis Obispo

— 4 nights
San Luis Obispo, or SLO for short, is a city in the U.S. state of California, located roughly midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on the Central Coast. Step out of the city life by going to Fiscalini Ranch Preserve and Stepladder Ranch & Creamery. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at San Luis Obispo County Farmers' Market Association and Studios on the Park. Explore San Luis Obispo's surroundings by going to Leffingwell Landing (in Cambria), Paso Robles (Estrella Warbird Air Museum & Pasolivo Olive Oil) and William Randolph Hearst Memorial Beach (in San Simeon). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Morro Strand State Beach, get great views at Bishop Peak, contemplate the waterfront views at Morro Bay National Estuary, and see the interesting displays at Morro Bay Skateboard Museum.

It includes many small communities with a strong agricultural heritage, and preserves a sense of old California. Many visitors on holiday come here to browse the excellent farmers' markets or tour world-class vineyards. The county offers plentiful outdoor vacation ideas, with beaches, rolling hills, and the Santa Lucia mountain range nearby. You can also take side trips to the area's larger towns, with their historical downtown districts, shopping destinations, and museums.
