Hollywood s fascination with San Luis Obispo; old saloons and taverns; wines and wineries; Avila, the world s largest oil port; Morro Bay s fishing roots; old stagecoach stops; military installations; Cal Poly;nearby museums and much more.
Of particular interest is the walking tour of downtown San Luis Obispo, complete with maps and descriptions of the historical buildings and homes of interest.
Knowing where to look for the past in the present is what this book is all about.
