San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, Morro Bay March 28-April 5
San Luis Obispo, called “SLOW” by the locals, and nearby towns of Pismo Beach and Morro Bay provided a variety of activities. This is yet another part of the Central California coast with a never ending supply of breathtaking views. Pismo Beach had a wonderful state park campground we used as a base to explore. The three towns are only about 10 miles apart, but differ quite a bit in terms of climate, activities and character. SLO- a small college town home to Cal Poly with a great downtown vibe, Pismo Beach- a very laid back CA beach community, and Morro Bay– a small fishing harbor community.
After missing out on hikes around Santa Barbara, we made hiking a priority for our time here. Other highlights- down time around camp and San Luis Obispo’s Thursday night farmer’s market. It has a reputation for one of the best farmer’s markets in all of California.
