Travel & Area Guide

Draw a line between San Francisco and Los Angeles — at the mid-point, along the California coast, you’ll find San Luis Obispo, rated one of the 10 Best Places to Live in the United States by Sperling’s Best Places.

Pride Week activities take advantage of the best the Central Coast has to offer, beautiful beaches, world class-theaters, quaint restaurants, hot bars, and the center of SLO life…the historic Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa.


Not sure where to stay in SLO? Reserve your room with The Kinney, our official Pride host hotel. To secure the discounted room rate during pride weekend, call (805) 544-8600 before June 18 and ask for a room from the PRIDE block.
