Looking to hang your hat near some of California’s most beautiful places? Then stop at San Luis Obispo. This charming, rural town is just minutes from gorgeous Pismo Beach and all the PGA golf you can handle. It’s also just south of the wine-lover's paradise of Paso Robles. The annual Mosaic Festival draws thousands of classical music fans to “SLO,” which is about midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. This place is way more than a simple stop-over, though, so stick around.
This college town marches to the beat of drums played at CSU SLO games, and that's good, because the town is very walkable, with many attractions close together. Even the less-visited attractions, well-enjoyed by locals, are just steps from many of our San Luis Obispo vacation rentals. Explore like a local from any one of them.
Life in SLO is anything but slow. Its position at the base of the Santa Lucia Mountains mean it’s a great place to take a hike (or mountain bike) around Montana de Oro State Park. Of course, locals know that Thursday is all about staying in town. Higuera St. is the place to be, because a huge farmers market draws in residents and college students with fresh produce, music, and more. Want to stay nearby so you have a place to stash all your purchases? Inn at San Luis Obispo is just a few blocks away.
When you’ve had your fill of the fruits of the earth, head off the beaten path a bit and dip your toes into the water. Just minutes away, Morro Bay is where locals go to cool off and enjoy activities such as stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, and picnicking. Lucky for you, the Morro Shores Inn And Suites makes it an even shorter drive to the beach.
Either way, you’ll have your own kitchen, Wi-Fi, and savings, so book one of Travelocity’s vacation rentals in San Luis Obispo today!
