San Luis Obispo is located between Los Angeles and San Francisco. It has always been considered a great “one tank” stop when driving between the two major Californian cities. San Luis Obispo (commonly known as SLO or San Luis) boasts lovely Spanish architecture and a charming downtown. Finding cheap hotels in San Luis Obispo is not that hard, no matter where you plan to stay.

Stop by the downtown area and check out the farmer’s market (every Thursday morning). Then head to the Bubble Gum Alley and leave some of your own chewed gum behind. Still feeling like that’s not weird enough? No problem, check out the famous men’s room toilet at Madonna Inn then. If you had enough of these weird attractions, pack your bike or hiking shoes and head to Poly Canyon or Bishop’s Peak. There are plenty other places to enjoy nature though.
