Make the Most of the Long Weekend
In San Luis Obispo, the weekend starts on Thursday, when thousands of visitors and locals roam the Downtown Farmers’ Market eating barbecue, corn on the cob, and other local delicacies. The first Friday of every month is Art After Dark, a self-guided tour through the town’s galleries and performance venues, while Fridays during the summer equal free concerts in Mission Plaza. But no, we’re not done yet; the Downtown is fully walkable and you can wine-bar hop from Luis to Wine Shed to Central Coast, then catch some live acoustic music outdoors at Luna Red or hit one of the many craft breweries that are thriving in SLO’s emerging craft beer scene. And speaking of walking, SLO is unique because the Downtown offers easy access to more than 55 miles of hiking and biking trails so you can explore California’s famous Central Coast.
