The City of San Luis Obispo continues to grow in popularity as a travel destination, which could in part be attributed to its impressive rankings on several national "best" lists this year.

Most recently, the city was named one of the top swimming communities by USA Swimming, the national governing body for the sport.

It was named also the friendliest small town by real estate blog Movoto and it made Livability.com's best places to live list.
