Day 11 Shop SLOcalToday is Day 11 of 25 Days of SLO Digital Adventure through San Luis Obispo with me, The Leesh! Today, we are adventuring to Higuera Street and beyond! Downtown San Luis Obispo, is quite an amazing little spot for burning some excess cash and it is in quite a lovely setting, so even if you just grab a coffee and wander around, it is an amusing way to spend the day.

I can’t tell you how many afternoons I have spent shopping and eating and people watching downtown. Just because I feel like I should impart some of my local foodie wisdom on you, I will give you a brief rundown of my favorite places to go (all equally delicious & fun): Ciopinot (seafood amazingness), Chino’s (rock and tacos), Yogurt Creations!, Mondeo Pronto, Mama’s Meatballs, Novo, Firestone, Woodstock’s… and so many more. 

Ok wait- I realize that I just listed a bunch of restaurants and not “shop” shops, so you can probably tell where I spend all of my money. But for those of you who actually leave room in your budget for clothes and fun items… there is plenty of the regular shops like, Express, Abercrombie, Urban Outfitters, Sports Authority, Gap etc. However, the real fun is the quirky little local shops that you cannot find anywhere else, like Fanny Wrappers, Coverings, Lucky Lu Lu’s, Avanti, Simply Mama and the list goes on.

If you want to see a complete list of shops and businesses, just go to the downtown association’s website here.

Stay tuned to continue on this digital adventure with me during the #25DaysofSLO and vote for Alycia Schaefer for SLO Ambassador!
