San Luis Obispo travel tips

The city of San Luis Obispo is serviced by SLO Transit, which offers eight fixed bus routes and a trolley route in the downtown area. Extending as far north as the campus of California Polytechnic State University and south to the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport, these routes are far-reaching and accessible. Most of the stops are located in the downtown area, but the surrounding neighborhoods of Chinatown, Mill Street Historic District and Old Town Historic District also have a high concentration. Many of the downtown hotels in San Luis Obispo are located within a few blocks of the nearest SLO Transit stop. Travelers can also connect to the SLO Regional Transit Authority if they are looking to explore outside San Luis Obispo County, such as a trip south to Santa Barbara or Pismo Beach. The SLO RTA shares several stops in Downtown San Luis Obispo with SLO Transit and serves as inter-community transit if you are looking to travel further outside the greater San Luis Obispo region.

Where to stay in San Luis Obispo

Travelers with children who are looking for family-friendly entertainment should book hotels in Downtown San Luis Obispo, such as the Hotel Cerro, located a few blocks from the San Luis Obispo Children’s Museum. Those with children who are looking forward to college life might prefer a stay closer to campus, like the Boutique Bungalow in Monterey Heights. Perhaps you are hoping to find cheap hotels in San Luis Obispo and spend your days on the nearby beaches, in which case you should stay further south of town in locations, such as the Rose Garden Inn. Traveling for business? Downtown hotels such as the Embassy Suites San Luis Obispo offer full accommodations to ensure you are ready for the day and house several conference centers where you can meet with your clients.


Learn about attractions and sights in San Luis Obispo

Often referred to as the "Happiest City in America," San Luis Obispo gives visitors plenty of reasons to smile. With an average of 315 days of sunshine each year, a walk through the historic downtown area is an attraction in itself. If you are looking to stay close to Downtown San Luis Obispo hotels, there are several attractions within walking distance, such as the Farmer’s Market on Thursday evenings, San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum and the historic Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, founded in 1772. Those who are looking to take advantage of the warm weather further outside of town can look no further than Pismo Beach or Avila Beach, both a short ride on SLO Transit from Government Center downtown. Even if you are not looking for higher education opportunities, consider walking the beautiful campus of California Polytechnic State University.

Whether you are looking for high-end dining or a quick stop at the deli, San Luis Obispo offers a wide variety of restaurants and bars. A majority of highly-rated restaurants and bars in the city are clustered within the downtown area. However, communities such as Chinatown and Little Italy hold their own, with rich cultural history and food that reflects it. Travelers who are staying within the downtown area, such as those who are at Granada Hotel & Bistro, will find many of these restaurants and bars within walking distance, or a short bus ride from the stop nearby the hotel.

Even with an average of 315 sunny days per year, there are still some days that stand out more than others in San Luis Obispo. Unique celebrations like San Luis Obispo Train Days in the first weekend of May, which celebrates the historical importance of railway travel and shipping throughout the region, take place close to the downtown area. Train-lovers who stay at downtown hotels such as the Garden Street Inn can easily walk to and from the event. If you are looking for a larger celebration, consider the Mid-State Fair that takes place for nearly two weeks at the end of July. Though it is located north of Downtown San Luis Obispo in Paso Robles, the San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority operates routes to and from the event for travelers staying in Downtown San Luis Obispo or surrounding neighborhoods, such as the Mission Inn San Luis Obispo just outside Little Italy.
