Get to know San Luis Obispo with Viator

Locals simply call San Luis Obispo “SLO,” and there is something short and sweet about the coastal town. While beaches and hiking trails abound, the pedestrian-friendly downtown charms with its Spanish Mission, leafy courtyards, and art deco buildings. Outside the town, dozens of tasting rooms serve delicious wine and craft beer, and the famous Madonna Inn pays homage to the disappearing SoCal kitschy hippie.
