Walk around the historic Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, founded by Junipero Serra. It is considered by many to be the most beautiful mission in the series; it was the fifth of the 21 California missions built, and remains an active Catholic church today.
The Mission Plaza in downtown San Luis Obispo is a gathering spot for the community as well as many community events and festivals year-round. Through a nearby footbridge, the plaza adjoins to the creekwalk and provides access to shops on Higuera Street.
Docent led tours are offered, for more information click here.
