This week we are going to hang-out in downtown San Luis Obispo and we’re going to start off by going on a walking tour! Did you know there are several options for walking tours in our area? There’s Cafe Tours, Walking Food Tours, Calpoly tours and I’m sure others we don’t even know about.

But to maintain our freebie theme, we would like to share the History Center of San Luis Obispo County’s audio and visual guide (see video below). The tour takes approximately 90 minutes to complete beginning at the History Center’s Carnegie Library Museum.

Also available is this exhaustive list compiled by the folks at the San Luis Obispo Visitor Center via the Visit SLO website. This highly detailed list showcases 22 historic landmarks and even includes a points of interest map.

So, get your listening devices charged, your walking shoes ready and head on out! We hope you enjoy your tour. And let us know which historical site you find most interesting!
