My family and I had been doing lots of local adventures lately, so I thought we would switch it up a bit and venture outside of our Santa Barbara city limits. With that said, we fueled up the car and headed North to the heart of the central coast, San Luis Obispo. I heard it has a hip downtown; full of great food and shops. For this foodie and (recovering) shopaholic, I was excited to make the day trip to SLO. What sealed the deal was getting to check out the famous Bubble Gum Alley.
First pit stop: picking up much-needed bubble gum (not to cover up horrendous morning breath ) but to chew up and add to the alley’s collection. Reading Yelp reviews, I knew ahead of time to check out a kitschy soda pop and candy store that’s kitty corner from the alley.
Without touching too much of that wall (eeeewwwww!!!!!) I was able to leave our initials somewhere on that wall. You should have seen my hilarious attempt to be very tactical about it. I even made sure to have my hand sanitizer nearby.
After that adventure, we enjoyed walking the streets of SLO. If you’re ever in the area, check out Firestone Grill. OMGeee, th best tri-tip sandwiches ever (ever, ever!) Tell them Kym sent you…kidding you’ll probably get a blank stare. I have no pull there.
