San Luis Obispo Overview

~San Luis Obispo is one of the Nicest places to live!~

SLO is one of the most well-known college towns on the west coast. Cal Poly has a reputation of being a party school.

San Luis Obispo is a smaller college town, about an hour and a half north of Santa Barbara, on the coast. It's a great little town to raise a family in, go to college or go on vacation. There's a real community feel, with lots of Mom and Pop businesses/restaurants, no drive-thrus and not very many "big box" stores. "SLO" (as the locals call it) was just named "The Happiest Place in the World to Live", by a National Geographic special and recently highlighted by Oprah and her TV show.
