San Luis Obispo has been called one of the happiest places on earth. It's an historic mission town set among rolling hills halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. We are just minutes away from a dozen beautiful and distinct beaches. Easy day tripping distance south to Santa Barbara and north to Hearst Castle and Big Sur.
San Luis Obispo is in one of California's best wine producing areas and is home to several dozen wineries. The vineyards pictured in the print on my listing are on the backside of the hill you see from the rear windows of our home. There are more than a dozen good wineries within a three or four mile radius of our home.
San Luis Obispo offers more than 6,500 acres of protected open space for hiking, biking trails, and just generally enjoying the great outdoors. There are several beautiful golf courses and lovely beaches nearby. You’ll also find waterfalls, sea caves, and hillsides covered in seasonal wildflowers. We are 45 minutes from the Hearst Castle and just a couple of hours from the Big Sur area and Carmel. Santa Barbara is also well within day trip distance at about an hour and a half away.
In addition to the nature scene, San Luis Obispo visitors will enjoy the historic downtown and interesting local landmarks. Tree-lined streets, a charming shopping district and historic buildings with outdoor dining, coffee houses, and galleries. On Thursdays, an open-air Farmers' Market fills four blocks of the downtown. Buy just-picked produce and sample a variety of specialities from local restaurants, or stroll the many arts and crafts booths while you are entertained by local performers.
