“One of the Happiest Places in the World”


As featured on Oprah, San Luis Obispo has been recognized as the happiest place to live in the United States. The Oprah show on January 26, 2011 featured highlights of why the city that lies between San Francisco and Los Angeles snagged the number one spot, including that residents experienced among the highest for “overall emotional health.” Residents are also “more likely to smile and experience joy and less likely to experience pain or depression.” Healthy habits, such as paddle boarding, kayaking, walking downtown to art galleries and museums have contributed to local happiness. Not to mention the award winning Edna Valley wine country just minutes from downtown that can turn anyone into a wine connoisseur. Make sure your next getaway is to one of the happiest places on Earth
