San Luis Obispo, California Voted the Best Blend of Sunshine, Food, and Beaches

Our city of San Luis Obispo has ranked in as one of the 25 Best Towns Ever, on Outside Magazine’s list for “Where to Live Now.” Three other west coast cities were included on the list: Bishop, California, Bend, Oregon and Seattle, Washington. The areas on the list were recognized for “having all the adventure a traveler could ask for, while also offering drool-worthy food and drink scenes, a kid-friendly environment and a welcome mat to people of all backgrounds.”

A special advisory council put together to nominate places commended San Luis Obispo as “Set just minutes from both the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Range, San Luis Obispo is roughly halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and, fortunately, is nothing like either city.” It also cited San Luis Obispo for our easy commutes, our relaxed “SLO Life” and perpetual sunshiny days.

Other information included in the aspect of each area was the cities’ population, median income levels and median housing prices. It was noted that San Luis Obispo homes aren’t cheap but they were taking into consideration the cost for “this kind of paradise”. Population: 47,000 Median home value: $546,000 Median household income: $46,000
