And I hope that I’m not wrong. Baby here’s where I belong. Every winter free of snow, San Luis Obispo.
It was the catchy Scissor Sisters song ‘San Louis Obispo’ that made my girlfriend want to visit.

At first I wasn’t to sure why we would want to visit San Louis Obispo, knowing it has no spectacular sights. SLO however has a special vibe going on, making it the happiest town in America.

Here’s 10 reasons why visiting San Louis Obispo will put a big smile on your face.

1) SLO is blessed with perfect blue skies and sunshine 306 days a year. Bring it on !

2) SLO is located in the Californian wine region. Did someone say happy hour ?

3) SLO lies at the Californian coast in between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Surfs up !

4) They have a little creek running through the center of town. You can easily cross the river by hopping from one stepping stone to another. Come on, who doesn’t love river crossing ?

5) They have a great sense of humor. I found this toy store who had gone completely crazy on window decorations in Lion King theme.

6) Or what about the Gum wall in Bubblegum Alley? It might just be one of California’s weirdest sights. It’s a little gross and odd but also a colorful piece of emmm gum art.
