The Most Instagrammable Spots in San Luis Obispo

Instagram is one of the most, if not the most popular social media site today; and what better way to show friends and family what you're up to while living away from home. There are so many beautiful sites near our apartments, amongst them all, here are three that provide the perfect backdrop for your next pic!

Avila Beach

Located about 15 minutes from our community, Avila Beach is the perfect spot to get that #nofilter snapshot to add to your Instagram feed. Founded in the late 1900's by Miguel Avila, it was originally used as a shipping port for San Luis Obispo. While it still has commercial fishing use, its beautiful beaches and inland apple orchards have turned it into a must-see tourist destination for many. With the soft sandy beaches and bright ocean sky, you'll be sure to impress with your breathtaking photos of the place you call home.

Bubblegum Alley

Located in charming downtown San Luis Obispo, Bubblegum Alley is a 15-foot high, 70-foot long alley stuck with chewing gum left by people who pass through. While there has been some debate as to how Bubblegum Alley came about, historians agree it was created in 1950. The wall was cleaned twice in the 1970's after local shop owners complained of its filth; but after a failed attempt to clean it in 1996, officials decided that the wall was going to stay. Bubblegum Alley is one of the top Instagram spots in San Luis Obispo because of it's quirky nature and colorful backdrop. With thousands of people adding to the wall every week, its constantly changing, making for a unique and one of a kind photo op.

Prefumo Canyon

A 3.6 mile loop, Prefumo Canyon offers breathtaking views year round from sunrise to sunset. Prefumo Canyon is known for its colorful wildflowers in the spring and green Ireland-like scenery in the winter. Accessible by car, bike or foot, it's the perfect spot to get that gorgeous photo while taking in all that nature has to offer and it will be sure to impress.
