Beautiful Day Hike. Looks gross..........but smells great! On Higuera St SLO you will find this gem of a place lol! Hey! It's fun and gross...curiosity will grab ya! From Madonna I could see Bishops Peak which is one of the Seven Sisters, all dormant volcanoes. I hope to hike this Peak at some point.
Advanced Hiker. The view from Bishops Peak was beautiful. Holding to your hat if it's a windy day. I lost mine to a gust of wind as soon as I reached the top. Ok! The Central Coast doesn't have as much Authentic Mex Food as I though but I was lucky enough to find this gem! If you want a great Taco Truck go to Santa Maria. Inside the chapel of the mission. A very old Adobe house near the Mission. Yummy for vegetarians all around the world! Sweet atmosphere. ✌🏼️🌲 This church is one of 21 CA Spanish missions and the only L shaped one. Take a walk through town and by the creek next to the mission. Follow the mission bells on El Camino Real to see all of them. #Colorful #Green #WeekendGetaway #Architecture. #roadtrip #StunningStructures #InStone Front entrance to the Madonna Inn! Go online and look for an evening that suits your mood and painting style. Local artists walk you through this artist process. I happen to be a hopeless romantic and painted the Bubblegum Alley is a tourist attraction in downtown San Luis Obispo, California, known for its accumulation of used bubble gum on the walls of an alley. It is a 15-foot high and 70-foot long alley lined with chewed gum left by passers-by. San Luis Obispo creek running through the center of town #roadtrip #creek #nature Painting and Cocktails! ...and the cheese plate was pretty yummy too. Great place to take a friend for a night out. Nachos and Veggie Pizza are 👍 Down town SLO! Celebrating Dia De Los Muertos. 11/1/14 Front entrance to the chapel of the Mission. Outside the Mission next to the chapel. Bubblegum alley is located in downtown San Luis Obispo , California. Pretty cool and kind of disgusting. Thousands of people come here and stick their own piece of gum on the walls. The Fremont in SLO! Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa is a Spanish mission founded in 1772 by Father Junípero Serra in the present-day city of San Luis Obispo, California. Front doors of the Mission. When in San Luis Obispo, check out the Modonna Inn. If just to visit, to eat or stay a night or two... You'll be glad you did. P..S. Make sure you check out the mens bathrooms near the restaurant. They have five kinds of Mac & Cheese. This is their classic Mac and a salad. They have a variety of local SLO Beers on tap. Little gem in slo. While some may think its gross, I love the colors Its never the same sunset.. This is the view from the top of Madonna. San Luis Obispo, nestled among the hills of the Central Coast. Great spot near Cal Poly. Beer was great. Flea Market on Sunday is interesting. If your looking for cheap beautiful plants, this is the place. I also suggest the Swap meet in Nipomo. 👍 An incredible hike! Starts in the woods, under a veil of beautiful trees and then opens up to stones and rocks, which rewards you with unreal views of the valley once you finally make it to the top!
#InStone Good Local Beer. Friendly staff. Food truck and sandwich shop adjacent.
