Live in the Happiest Place in America

Who say's San Luis Obispo is the best place to live? Well, let's see... Oprah, Dateline NBC, Sunset Magazine, ABC News, Men's Journal, LA Times and National Geographic just to name a few! I can confirm the rumors because I live and work here.

San Luis Obispo County is a coastal county located between San Francisco and Los Angeles… Our main city is also San Luis Obispo (or "SLO" as locals call it) and I'm sure you've been hearing about it!   Oprah called San Luis Obispo the "Happiest place in America" to live!  It's been voted by Sunset magazine as the Best Town of the Future, having the Best Weather in the US, the most irresistible Wine Escapes in the country and Best Foods and Farmer's Markets!

What makes SLO so magical?

Often people say it's the ideal weather and clean air. Other's say it's unmatched community spirit, non-profit support and entrepreneurial leadership. Visitor's might argue that it's the natural and assorted beauty from inland to the sea. Perhaps it the unique wildlife and migrating friends that make us unique.

Maybe the celebrations of our history makes it a magical place to be. Personally, I enjoy the variety of activities across this relaxed county! The celebrated public events certainly add a lot of character and fun for all ages... But maybe it's the range of award winning foods or the world class wineries that make SLO county so special.

Living here and escaping to the variety of beaches certainly has it's perks but maybe it's the happy people that make SLO such a great place to live!

Before I share the SECRET TO LIVING HERE, here's just a few more praises:

* Forbes predicted us as the "Best City for Housing Recovery"
* Delta Sky Magazine calls us the "Happiest Place in the World"
* Men's Journal calls us the "Coolest Town"

* MSN reported us as the "Best College Town"
* Dateline NBC picked SLO as a "Top Place in the WORLD to Live"
* SLO was voted "Favorite Vacation Spot" by the LA Times
* We were revealed as the "Happiest Place on Earth" by ABC News
