San Luis Obispo truly is one of California’s loveliest of cities.

San Luis Obispo is one of California’s oldest cities, as it was founded in 1772 by Father Junipero Serra when he and the Franciscans traveled along California’s coast founding several missions. Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa eventually became the city of San Luis Obispo.

The city (population a bit more than 45,000 in 2010) enjoys the mild Mediterranean climate for which California is so well known, and has just 50 days of rain per year and offers an average high temperature in the winter of a bit more than 60 degrees (although temperatures of 80 and above are not unheard of even in January and February) and an average high summer temperature of about 80 degrees.

You will pay for this great weather in housing prices, however. reported that the median price for a single-family home in San Luis Obispo in March was $515,000. Rents for a two-bedroom apartment average about $1,500.

San Luis Obispo also is home to California State University, San Luis Obispo. It’s therefore a mecca for young people. Its proximity to the ocean and the mountains also draw outdoor lovers for hiking, surfing, diving, sailing, backpacking, etc.
