Weekend Getaway: San Luis Obispo. #TravelTuesday
San Luis Obispo, or SLO as its known to the locals, is a great gem off Highway 101 as you’re heading north to San Francisco (Or, down to LA). Minutes from Pismo Beach, you’ll find yourself nestled among lush mountains & landscapes filled with mountains, wine country & adorable local shops along their main drags like Marsh & Higuera Street. You will have so much available at your finger tips in this city. Read on then begin planning your weekend getaway to San Luis Obispo, California!
Settle in to Apple Farm, one of SLO’s most beloved 4 star hotels. Cookies upon arrival, wine receptions & beds that will have you wishing it could stowaway home with you, Apple Farm is truly one of my most favorite hotels I have stayed at.
Visit The Cal-Poly University campus, a renowned institute responsible for some of the best Engineers in the country, or take a gorgeous hike & check out a waterfall on Reservoir Canyon Trail. Nature walks give you an appetite? Cruise on down to Higuera Street & get a delicious pizza at Woodstock Pizza (gluten-free options!) or explore one of the many countless other eateries to be dined at.
Shopping is abundance, too. From name brand shops like Sephora & Ross, to mom & pop shops that have been there forever, there is something for everyone to find in SLO.
Want to see a wall of bubblegum, & maybe even leave your mark? they’ve got you covered with that, too! Bubblegum Alley is…famous? Infamous?? You decide.
Don’t miss the lovely California Mission & their gardens. Ran on donations, make sure to thank them for your visit!
Besides Woodstock Pizza, another great local spot is The Splash Cafe. With their famous original location down the highway in Pismo Beach, they finally opened up shop a few years back in SLO & the beach bums couldn’t be more pleased. Still capturing the beachy atmosphere, they’re serving up all your faves like tacos & burgers & that famous clam chowder.
Want something a bit more formal? Guess what, Apple Farm has you covered. From breakfast to dinners, their restaurant, just like the hotel, won’t disappoint. Casual wear is cool, too.
