California: San Luis Obispo
Located between Los Angeles and San Francisco is the unassuming treasure of California Central Coast: San Luis Obispo. From its beautiful beaches to its amazing natural landscape, SLO (as the locals call it) is also home to California Polytechnic State University, which gives it a comfy, college-town vibe.
You can opt for surfing or cave swimming if you’re the adventurous type or just relax and sip a glass of flavorful wine at one of the restaurants and bars in downtown SLO. Imagine the perfect nightlife without the crowds and steep prices of L.A. and the Bay Area.
