San Luis Obispo is a culturally active town with museums, historical landmarks, galleries, restaurants, micro-breweries, wine-tastings and events. For an American town of its size, it has a compact, walkable downtown. Most restaurants, pubs and bars are best explored around Monterey, Higuera and Broad street. There are great locations, restaurants and pubs on the coast too, and can be accessed by regional transit bus line 12 to Morro Bay and Los Osos as well as line 10 to Shell Beach and then Avila Trolley to Avila Beach, or by rental car.
