    The mission in San Luis Obispo is right downtown, so it can be visited while you are enjoying the little shops--and some not so little--at the same time.

    The first fully solar-powered cinema built in the USA, the Palm Theatre is a grovvy little arthouse cinema in downtown San Luis Obispo. Ground-breaking documentaries, film-festival indie flicks and foreign films are all regularly on the marquee right here, on the same block as SLO's tiny historical Chinatown district, within earshot of the Spanish colonial mission bells.

    Also know as the "Big Fremont," this downtown movie theater in San Luis Obispo has a gorgeous, huge art deco-esque sign outside, brilliantly lit up with pink, blue, yellow and green neon. Look for Midnight Madness movies and also the SLO Rewind series, where they show classic masterpieces like Vertigo and the Godfather on special nights.

    First of all, we found an Australian candy bar here that my friend loves and hasn't been able to find in the US anymore. Second, what a fantastic selection of sodas! We couldn't help but get a 6 pack. Had some great ones (Sprecher Puma Kola especially) and some interesting ones (Brownie Cookie Dough soda, Prickly Pear). Awesome!

    Are you a beer person and love listening to live bands? Well, this would be the place for you. Many people come here to just hang out and chill. Most band nights, there's a $2 charge, however, not sure if that's every time there's a band there. I find this place a bit of a hipster and 'i just want ...

    Great library in downtown SLO! Besides books, they also lend out music and movies. Also as a branch of the San Luis Obispo County Library system, borrowing from nearby libraries doesn't require any fees or additional memberships.

    Handmade spice blends, medicinal and herbal teas, incense, and leafy green plants greet you as you step through the wooden gate by the stream into this locally owned feel-good shop. The owner is so sweet, and she's ready to recommend a brew for whatever ails you. My favorite is the vanilla beans for $3 each. Yum!

    Nobody wants to have an emergency while they're traveling. But if you do need to scramble to find an ER on California's Central Coast between Santa Barbara and Monterey, French Hospital is the best. Professional, caring staff and minimized wait time will have you feeling better fast.

    Finally, there's an upscale place to imbibe in downtown SLO. This gorgeous, wide-open wine bar not only has a killer list of regional wines from Paso Robles, SLO's Edna Valley and Santa Barbara's wine country and beyond, but the huge picture windows are left open to the street on sunny days and cool evenings. Ask about the wine flights, which ...

    This place used to be called something else, but I guess they changed the name and probably the owner because what I remembered was that they used to have beer pong tables upstairs and dance floor downstairs. Glad it changed since people don't have to stumble upon themselves when they had a little too much to drink. SLO Brewing Co ...

Stephen Ross bottles some of the most elegant, polished chardonnay and pinot noir anywhere in San Luis Obispo County. Worth a stop on any local wine tour, especially if ...
