San Luis Obispo is truly a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. SLO takes the open air concept to the next level with our desirable climate, stunning landscape, close proximity to the ocean and ample amount of open space and hiking trails. With endless things to do from hiking and surfing, to zip lining and horseback riding, SLO is the true MVP for those with an affinity towards the great outdoors and it’s all at hands reach in the heart of SLO CAL.
Visit like a local by stopping by at the SLO swim center or taking advantage of some of our outdoor events in San Luis Obispo, like our annual City to Sea Half Marathon, SLO Triathlon or the Boots and Brews Country Music Festival.
Looking to keep it a little more low key? Relax at one of our numerous Edna Valley wineries, dine “al fresco” at one of our notorious Downtown patios, stroll down Higuera Street for the Thursday evening Farmers’ Market, soak up the sun at any number of beaches in San Luis Obispo, or enjoy an afternoon listening to the smooth rhythm of different local beats at Concerts in the Plaza—or any of our other open music events.
