Welcome to San Luis Obispo

Located midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, San Luis Obsipo is one of the oldest cities in the state of California. Founded in 1772, modern San Luis Obispo still bares numerous traces of its historic past. These include the Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, which serves as the heart of Downtown San Luis Obispo. The city has a population of just under 50,000 residents, though some 280,000 people call the county home. 

Much of San Luis Obispo's economy is centered on the service industry. The area is home to multiple educational institutions, including California Polytechnic State University. The San Luis Coastal Unified School District serves the community, and a strong local school system serves as a draw for families thinking of relocating to the city. 

Cultural hot spots, vibrant shopping destinations,and renowned eateries abound in San Luis Obispo. From the historic appeal of the Carnegie Library to the quirky fun of Bubblegum Alley, San Luis Obispo has something to offer everyone. A number of independent boutiques and national chains have operations in the area, providing dining and shopping options for residents.
