San Luis Obispo California

This really cute, central California coast town has an historic mission:

The mission is quite actively part of the community of San Luis Obispo, with a large, well attended church. They host lots of fun, family events in the gorgeous courtyard area between the mission and the river that runs through the town.

The town has these really nice street lamps:

along the river walk.

Bubble Gum Alley is a tourist attraction. No, I did not add any chewed gum to the effort.

I loved the library.

The museum is also really cute and modern.

This hangs on the outside of the museum, visible as you approach from the main street.

There are lots of places to eat downtown. The SLO Brewery has great food:

and, of course, beer.

I don’t know if we would call this covered passageway an “arcade” like they do in Australia, but we should. It’s good to have a word for it.

If you walk through the arcade you end up at one of the restaurants overhanging the creek.

I love how you can see small mountains from the town. It reminds me of Townsville, Australia.

Also like Townsville, I think the town commissioned some street art to cover a utility box.
