  • A cool and shady spot to rest and recover after exploring the Mission and the Historic Museum. At night enjoyed a televised concert.  more »
  • We arrived in town and we were greeted by a party that was happening in the square: music & dance, several local people dancing and having a great time. Nothing too full, enough that the place to stay cheerful and excited.

  • We stopped in San Louis Obispo for a stopover on our way from San Francisco to Los Angeles and we were blown away by this wonderful town! Little known, indeed perhaps mostly unknown to tourists, St. Louis is a very pretty and peaceful, with avenues and streets clean, neat filled with buildings in good shape. Stroll through the center of St. Louis was a moment of relaxation and tranquility, a pleasant surprise! This Park, located in front of the entrance of the Mision, is an example of peace and feeling of order which reigns in this city.

  • 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...
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • I will say the best plaza in California region
  • This is one of my favorite places in downtown! I have a lot memory there! I did YOSAKOI dance with my friends at the friendship night when I was a student!
