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.

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.
