Highway 1 Discovery Route

We experienced amazing ocean and coastal views; toured Hearst Castle; watched the elephant seals; strolled charming coastal towns; enjoyed great hikes; and really enjoyed the area wineries.
Inland and ocean vistas are gorgeous,and lodgings range from fabulous and expensive,to nice and reasonable to great camping sites.
California Polytechnic University
#2 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in San Luis Obispo
From there go to Leaning Pine Arboretum and take in the sites and vistas!
Bishop Peak
#3 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in San Luis Obispo
My girls suggest 5am sunrise hike/watching but I prefer mid morning or after the noon sun subdides...hiking above the clouds and birds and panoramic views of SLO Los Osos and further make this a memorable activity!!!
It's tempting to try the hike on a cooler day, but then the fog may block the amazing view.
Avila Valley Barn
#4 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in San Luis Obispo
There are amazing eats to be had here that are either made on site, or brought in from local sources.
She love this place because of the animals that are on site (Goats, cow, donkey, horse, lama's).
Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa
#5 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in San Luis Obispo
Having visited a number of California Missions I was impressed with the extensive historical museum on site focusing upon the arrival of explorers 200 yrs ago and settlement of the central coast.
Enjoyed visiting this historical site.
Mission Plaza
#6 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in San Luis Obispo
The ancient trees are some of the most beautiful in the downtown area, the view of the front of the mission is lovely, and there almost always seem to be people just walking, talking, and enjoying themselves.
Several restaurants are within view of the church or along the creekside.

The Whale Trail

Wonderful sites to visit, with a fair chance of spotting a whale (during migration seasons)
Maybe being from New York makes me overly impressed by nature but the views on this trail were so amazing.
