Directions to San Luis Obispo
General Visitor’s Information
San Luis Obispo is a destination for all seasons with a moderate climate year-round. While many attractions can be enjoyed any time, each time of year has something unique to offer. In the summer, temperatures average a pleasant 70 to 80 degrees, just right for shopping or enjoying the evening light as you walk along the creek after a dinner downtown. During autumn, breathe in the crisp morning air from the Jacuzzi outside your hotel room before a day of wine tasting. When winter comes, take a leisurely bike ride around the green, rolling hills surrounding the city. Wildflowers start to bloom in early spring, flooding the surrounding hills with purples, blues, oranges, and reds.
While San Luis Obispo is a perfect vacation spot in its own right, it’s also ideally situated as a home base for exploring all of Central California. Many visitors venture afield to world-famous Hearst Castle, one of the many surrounding beaches, Carrizo Plain National Monument, the Danish village of Solvang, or many other popular destinations. With its variety of activities, stellar weather, friendly locals, and limitless opportunities for unique experiences, San Luis Obispo is the perfect getaway.
