San Luis Obispo, or "SLO" is a great city on the central coast of California. It is home to Cal Poly, the top public engineering and architecture school in the nation. But since Cal Poly is still a state school, there are awesome parties and tons of fine girls. San Luis Obispo has a small town feel in its downtown area, with tons of good restaurants and shops. Every Thursday is Farmer's market, where the main downtown street, Higuera St, is closed off and tons of people are everywhere selling food, theres live entertainment, and a lot to do. Not to mention the weather is perfect almost year round. It is just far enough from the coast that it stays pretty warm, but close enough that the beach isnt too far away. It is close to many beach towns, like Avila, Pismo, Morro Bay, and Cayucos. There is pretty decent surf in the region, and the beach towns are very nice. One of the best things about San Luis Obispo is the people, though. Everyone is really friendly and SLO is a good place to live. It was recently voted the number 1 happiest place in the United States, and it is the second happiest place in the entire world. San Luis Obispo is an awesome place to call home.
