It won't take long to tour the mission and its grounds, but it provides a good sense of the town's history.

What an inspiration to have the city 'fathers' propose the plan to make the Mission area a pedestrian-only plaza, great for the very popular free Friday concerts throughout the summer, for crafts events and other special occasions. The tremendous tall eucalyptus trees and the pedestrian areas make this a great place to spend an afternoon, relaxing in the vistas.

Lots of neat shops to peruse. We walked and walked and enjoyed the Thursday night Farmers Market. I think all the yogurt shops that have left So. Orange County are in SLO - at least one on every block.

The fountain outside the Mission is fun - you just have to see it; I don't want to spoil the surprise...that is the start of the pedestrian part - at Christmas, they have a Santa Claus to visit....in June, no Santa - and no trout and practically puddles of water in the Creek -very scary. I have been here in... More

Mission Plaza is a hub for events, music, displays, etc. It is adjacent to a creek, the Mission and so many other wonderful places. Come for the LGBGT Fest. and then see a Sidewalk Chalk Painting display another time. There is always something going on.

The Mission Plaza is a gateway to the Mission, the stroll along the creek, restaurants on all sides, the SLO Art museum and more, all within a 1 block radius. With events almost every weekend and often during the week, well come on down and check it out and enjoy! Whatever your style, it is most likely here somewhere!

After seeing the mission we took a stroll outside the mission and came upon the creek. My granddaughter enjoyed it. It had plenty of shade and benches. It was nice to relax and enjoy the simple beauty of this area.
