Ideas for a Good Time without Breaking the Bank

San Luis Obispo is a community in love with fresh food.  Know world-wide for our Thursday evening Farmers' Market, this market is a great way to start your weekend and awaken your senses. But in case you miss Thursday, you have many more markets to choose from since the is at least one a day to enjoy throughout the county.   
See SLO's local art scence come to life and browse local art galleries on the first Friday of each month during Art After Dark, when local downtown businesses hold open houses, unveil exhibits, bring in special guests and more.
Take a hike. San Luis Obispo has some amazing trails in its open spaces and natural reserves. Throw on your sneakers, grab a camera and head out. To know where you are headed, check out these trail maps. 

Check out two of San Luis Obispo’s funkiest attractions. Just off Higuera Street downtown, between Garden and Broad streets, is Bubblegum Alley, where you can make your own contribution for a quarter.

And just outside downtown is the Madonna Inn, a riot of pink, carved wood and stone walls where every room has its own over-the-top theme and a surprise awaits in the downstairs men’s bathroom.

Visit the charming San Luis Obispo Children's Museum. The 3rd Thursday of every month the museum opens its doors and offers free admission from 5-8 pm. More information can be found at the Children's Museum website.

Walk around the historic Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa – the fifth founded by Junipero Serra in California – and Mission Plaza then wander the paths around San Luis Creek.



Pedal your way around town, tackle some trails or coast through nearby wine country on a self-guided bicycle tour. Find the maps you need here.



San Luis Obispo is an ideal spot to geocache with your family and friends. You can go for a hike, take a walk around the neighborhoods or parks, stop by museums, or even Bubblegum Alley located downtown. These caches are virtually found anywhere and everywhere imaginable.  Check out SLO Geocaching here.
