Mission Plaza, San Luis Obispo (must see)

Mission Plaza is the center of a green oasis settled in the heart of the city. San Luis Obispo’s most popular walking place is often home to various cultural events such as festivals and concerts. Surrounding the Plaza, San Luis Obispo Creek is packed with fountains, restored adobes, little bridges and small paths. The creek, running underneath the town, pops out here, creating a stream that in summer adds more playground options for kids. Left from the Plaza there is a street packed with shops and restaurants.
