6 Lovely Things to do With Your Loved One in SLO

Who’s ready for Valentine’s Day? Celebrate love in San Luis Obispo County this week. You’ll find plenty of things to do, see, and enjoy; share a kiss while watching a colorful sunset, or enjoy each other’s company while taking a scenic hike.

Give your loved one something more than a generic card or a box of chocolates this Valentine’s Day. Experiences such as these are the best way to have a great time while sharing something special and unique together.

1. The Classic Romantic Dinner

Get some face-to-face time with your loved one at one of the county’s most romantic restaurants. Try Italian food at Giuseppe’s in Pismo Beach or San Luis Obispo, global cuisine at San Luis Obispo’s Novo, country-style fare at the Paso Robles Inn Steakhouse, or seafood at Pismo Beach’s Ventana Grill or the oceanfront Ocean Grill in Avila. Just make sure to make reservations to these popular, and delicious, spots!

2. Picnic With a View

Never in your life will you find a more concentrated amount of great sandwich spots than in San Luis Obispo, including Kona’s DeliHigh Street Deli, & Ben Franklin’s Sandwiches. Pick up a sandwich and some snacks, and take them with you to San Luis Obispo’s beautiful open spaces; escaping to undeveloped fields and spaces is a form of restoration for the soul. Go to Terrace Hill Open Space, Johnson Ranch Open Space, or straight to the beaches in Pismo Beach or Avila Beach.

3. Go-Wine Tasting

Enjoy each others’ company on a wine tasting adventure that you’ll always remember. There are two different regions of wine tasting in the area: Paso Robles Wine Country, which offers a great variety of vineyards down beautiful Highway 46, or the smaller Edna Valley, which is closer to Pismo Beach and more tucked away. Take your pick of some of the best vineyards in the state!

4. Walk the Local Farmer’s Market

Try local produce, enjoy the community feeling,  and watch entertainment and live music – this all can be found at the Thursday Farmer’s Market in San Luis Obispo or another local farmer’s market. Check out this list to find one nearest to you!

5. Shopping in Downtown SLO / The Station

If you want a cultural fix, check out the boutiques, art galleries, and museums in downtown San Luis Obispo. It’s a vibrant area with many unique shops that you can’t find elsewhere. For those artists and wine connoisseurs out there, The Station offers a wide variety of wine-related events as well as fine art/craft classes.
