About California’s Central Coast

California’s Central Coast roughly spans the Pacific Ocean coastline from Point Mugu in Ventura County to the Monterey Bay and from the coast inland encompassing the counties of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito.

However, there is some local disagreement over which communities have the real ownership of the Central Coast designation. The local association seems to be centered more in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties and the coastal regions of Monterey County.

Nevertheless, the region is know for agriculture and tourism and is the location of the Central Coast American Viticulture Area. The Central Coast is a popular destination for wine tasting, weddings, and outdoor activities including camping, hiking, horseback riding and both fresh water and ocean fishing.

Before European contact the Chumash, Ohlone, Salinan and other indigenous people, originally inhabited the region. Thousands of descendants of the original inhabitants still live and work in the area.

The city of San Luis Obispo, known locally as SLO, is the County Seat for San Luis Obispo County. The GPS coordinates for SLO are 35.2828° N, 120.6596° W.
