Had a little getaway with J last week. Spur of the moment and late for my birthday, we decided to rent a car and drive up the coast to a little town called San Luis Obispo. It's an hour and a half away from Santa Barbara and three hours from L.A.
Just far enough!
If you followed along on snap (@hundredblog) you saw that It was insanely gorgeous, remote, mountainous, green, lush, and right on the BEACH.
Such a good quiet place to escape for just enough time. If you live in Cali, definitely do a weekend here!
Justin and I haven't traveled together just us in a while and it's so fun to have your bud there with you to do things. I can drag him on as many hikes as possible, ha. I'll keep it super short and share some photos and things to do, but hoping you had a lovely weekend too!
Things to do:
Pismo Beach: The beach here is SO quaint, and it's amazing because the background is all mountains. Truly breathtaking.
Bubble Gum Alley: Gross, actually. It's like tons of peoples gum built up over the years. I'm serious - LOL But it's a must see in the area.
Mission San Luis Obispo: Gorgeous religious site, that won't take more than 30 minutes to see.
Farmers Market (especially on Thursdays!): Such good food, and really good local vibe.
Bishop's Peak: Easy hike, about 5 miles up and down. Great views of the area.
Thrifting: Really good shopping and thrifting here. Take your time and really explore it!
Places to stay:
Weirdly there are not a lot of cute hotels in the area, so let me know if you need an airbnb spot, and I got you covered! Otherwise, The Madonna Inn is super famous and each room is completely different than the other. Everything is almost all PINK and it's a crazy unique place to stay.
Places to eat:
Big Sky Cafe: Breakfast and lunch spot with something to please everyone.
Luna Red: Tapas style place, good for drinks too.
Bliss Cafe: Vegan food, and I love it!
The Original Jamba Juice: Truly!
Granada Hotel: We had a really nice dinner here, good wine and great service.
Seeds: Juice and health food place, that's really good.
Scout Coffee: The best coffee spot in the area, super cute and great for pictures, I LOVED the decor.
Shop my look in this post:
(I basically wore this outfit THE WHOLE TIME because it was WAY colder than I thought and ya girl only packed shorts. SMH.
Keeping it short and sweet today. Have such good posts this week, so this one is just an update! Going to Austin next weekend for a bachelorette, any suggestions of thangs to do? Would love your input!
You da best,
