    You got me on flights, but I'm guessing summer is the best time to go to San Luis. It is a great town, and heavily influenced by the college there. Summer months mean no parents visiting - my guess you could get a great deal right now. Try Thrift car rental - rates get down to15-19 bucks a day for a car if you don't care what you drive. Might even want to drive down from San Jose Airport - only 3 hours or so. Have fun, SLO is a great town. Make sure to try some of their SLO microbrew beer.

    I found your request when I was looking for information about SLO. My wife & I are considering a move and SLO is on our short list...although we have yet to travel there as we live in Nebraska. We would be grateful to hear of your thoughts about life in SLO. We are in our 40's & tire of the winters here. Thanks.

    G I just read your comments about staying in San Luis Obispo and wondered if you would comment on the city? My wife & I have it on our short list of relocation sites. We lived in Sacramento throughout the 80's, but have been in the midwest ever since. I know the housing costs more, but wonder if that's not offset by the climate, recreation, education & community?Thanks G
