Welcome back to paradise! Summer is not the only time, or even the best time, to visit San Luis Obispo County. Sure, summers here are warmer, but spring and fall have their own distinctive pleasures, and winters are very mild. Your visit during the off-season offers better rates and fewer fellow tourists wherever you plan to go, whatever you plan to do. Pick a month and visit our Events Calendar to see what catches your fancy. Then view on our First-Time Visitor page for climate and packing suggestions.
