The Sweet Side of SLO

In SLO, we take our coffee breaks seriously. Visit the Kin Coffee Bar or Ascendo Coffee for a pastry and a cup of Joe to start the morning!  If you’re craving something even sweeter, grab a delicious ice cream at Doc Burnstein’s or Cowboy Cookies, for a delicious ice cream cookie cup!

See SLO in Bloom

Spring in SLO means warmer temps and blooming flowers that cover the hills in color. A trip through the Irish Hills Trails will set you for a front row seat when it happens. Some of these hiking and bike paths follow the calm waters of Froom Creek that lead all the way up a canyon, culminating in a dazzling view of the Morros, volcanic mountains that dot the SLO landscape. The Madonna Inn Trail Rides have the option to ride horses on the hillside paths, an experience perfect for all ages and a magical way to experience spring in SLO.

A new season means more reasons to get outside with loved ones and safely explore the city. From the open streets of Downtown SLO to the rolling hills that surround us, there is an adventure around every corner, making it the perfect spring getaway.
