  • Is a central square in San Luis, in front of the mission. Very nice ride, quiet, wooded, beautiful. Anyway, Nice. The source is pretty okay.

  • This is the kind of place to find some peace throughout a work week. Weekends have different events to watch or just sit and people watch. But like all cities, watch out for thieves day or night  more »

  • Beautiful historic plaza. Many fun events held here. Parking is a nightmare.
  • Lively plaza with immediate access to everything - the mission itself, the gallery, as well as retail stores and restaurants.
  • I love this location. It seems to be the hub of so many local events. It is in the middle of a nice park. There are public restrooms and it is centrally located. The Mission Church is there as well as a gift shop where you can buy locally made things as well as commercial items. and now the COWS. Love this place. Peaceful and enjoyable for any occasion.
  • We stopped for a day our bicycle tour in 2008 at San Louis Obispo. The creek and surrounding is so nice to walk and relax...
  • This mission plaza encompasses a block long area in front of the San Luis Obispo Mission. There are events most weekend and often during the week. The fountain, pergola, and amphitheater are always pleasant. The walk by the creek is connected to the plaza and goes for several block. A wonderful people watching location, surrounded by restaurants, shops and museums. The San Luis History Center, The San Luis Art Museum, and The San Luis Mission all are touching this beautiful well maintain mini park. Often it is a gathering place for transients, however they seem to keep to themselves.
