Downtown Center Mall, San Luis Obispo

Downtown Center Mall is an upbeat, attractive mall along the main strip in downtown San Luis Obispo, at 893 Higuera Street. It looks newer and cleaner than the rest of the town and makes for a nice place to hang out. There are flowerpots, a statue, and colorful umbrellas. A two-storey Barnes and Noble Booksellers provides a nice escape with kids after a long day exploring the coast. Pizza Solo is a good spot to eat with creative pizza choices (limited indoor seating). Splash Cafe is a colorful cafe with affordable food. Starbucks, Jamba Juice, and California Pizza Kitchen (indoor only) are other options. There's also a movie theater. Cal Poly students are everywhere and liven up the scene. They look clean-cut and sure of themselves, which is refreshing. I like this part of San Luis Obispo!
Just half a block north of here on Higuera Street is another wonderful downtown mall called Court Street Mall. It has an alley that makes you feel like you're in Europe!
