About San Luis Obispo County
The county of San Luis Obispo is an amazing area, and most of us realize just how lucky we are to be living here. We know that we live in a special place, and we don't take for granted all that we have around us to enjoy. We appreciate the natural beauty of the hills and ocean, our lively business areas, the wineries and agriculture. And while these are the obvious things that any visitor can appreciate, what really makes San Luis Obispo County stand out is a powerful sense of community. This is an area full of people who love to participate in events, support our schools and nonprofit organizations, and support each other in business. We work with, play with, and help each other in ways that aren't often found in other communities. This is why many of us came here, and why most of us want to stay.

The SLO City News, the Coast News and the Bay News are delivered at no charge, successfully reaching SLO County residents in homes, online and from over 500 distribution sites in our communities.
