Breakfast, Brunch, and Coffee
There are two locations for this local favorite coffee shop: one by Cal Poly located on Foothill Blvd and another downtown on Garden St. These are both great places to relax, work from your computer, or meet with others. Scout has a beautiful atmosphere with indoor/outdoor seating. They locally roast their own coffee and bake fresh pastries in-house. We recommend the Wilderness latte and the famous Scout cookies.

Located in downtown SLO, this is a real “diner" experience. Expect the service and food to be authentic. Highly recommended, though often times they are 100% full. You may have to wait for a seat, but in the meantime you can stroll downtown. This is a wonderful place for a classic pancake breakfast. Indoor and outdoor seating is available.

The small fishing town of Morro Bay is located just 12 miles from our airbnb. This is a great place to have fish and chips, kayak, and enjoy the sea life. Sea otters, seals, and coastal birds make this their home. Morro Bay is also known to have great surfing! The Hofbrau is a great restaurant located along the "Strand" or main street. It can be much colder and windier than SLO. Remember to bring a jacket.

Pismo Beach is located less than 6 miles from the airbnb. This is a lovely coastal town where you can eat clam chowder, enjoy ice cream from Kraken, lounge on the beach, and even rent a bike to cruise around town. You can also hike at the newly opened-up Pismo Preserve. The pier has recently been updated. This is one of our favorite beaches to visit, though it can be quite busy.

This beach is less than 6 miles from the airbnb. Here, you can walk along the Bob Jones trail, lounge in the sunshine, hammock from the pier, or dance to live music. There are also various restaurants facing the sea so that you can enjoy an ocean view as you eat. Another fun place to visit nearby is Avila Valley barn which has seasonal produce and a free petting zoo. This is a great place to visit in Fall as it turns into a pumpkin patch and they serve hot cider!

The creek walk downtown is a beautiful place to escape the shops and enjoy the waterways in SLO. Home to Steel-head trout and red-legged frogs-- this is a peaceful and enjoyable place to walk. It is also located along the Mission if you chose to visit the plaza.

A romantic Italian restaurant located in downtown SLO. This is easily one of our favorite restaurants in town. If you go there, you may be surprised at how small it looks, do not be fooled. When they ask where to sit, ask to be seated on the patio. That is where all the locals sit and it is beautiful. A great place for a romantic dinner. Visit BTslo.com for reservations.

Hikes + Outdoor Experiences
Beautiful network of hikes and biking trails just behind our airbnb. (Seriously, you need only walk 5 minutes to arrive at the main trailhead.) From the top of Mariposa you can see the range of "sisters" --the iconic hills that trail across our town. There are short and long hikes available. We recommend Froom Canyon, Mariposa, or Old Prospector. https://www.alltrails.com/parks/us/california/irish-hills-open-space

Our favorite place for hiking, biking, walking and even sliding down sand dunes. This range of hills and sand dunes aptly named "mountain of gold" is located in Los Osos. It is further from SLO but well worth the trip out. We recommend Valencia Peak for a semi-challenging hike and "the bluffs" for a relaxing ocean-cliffs walk. It can be quite foggy and cold. Make sure to bring a jacket.
