San Luis Obispo Romance

Chocolates, roses, and champagne: romantic. Combining all that with adventures on the beautiful Central Coast? “I do!” San Luis Obispo (SLO) is equal parts romance and outdoor fun. Book an overnight package and get started on a Valentine's adventure to remember. Spend the night at an intimate B&B and fuel up on a local, organic breakfast before hiking to Montana de Oro's Valencia Peak  (1200 feet) where swooping coastal vistas and waves smoldering among bluffs add intrigue to your 'extended arm' snapshots. Or pack a picnic and a bottle of local wine, and relax by the water at Lopez Lake (for those whose Valentine's date is a dog, not figuratively, Lopez Lake is dog-friendly!).

Does your idea of a romantic escape include a giant rock engagement? You're in luck! Bishop Peak and Cabrillo Peak are two of the most notable rock-climbing spots in the region, located among the Seven Sisters—a chain of ancient volcano plugs that lead from Downtown SLO to Morro Bay. And for those who like it hot, cozy up to a bonfire at Avila Beach, one of the nicest, year-round sandy spots on the Central Coast. SLO's got all the ingredients you need for putting a sweet touch on outdoor adventures. Book your Valentine's adventure package today. SLO romantic!
