Review of Arroyo Grande, California

Hometown, USA
Star Rating - 8/12/2017
I've lived here for nearly thirty years and love it. Great, easy climate year round. I know what I'm talking about--having lived in San Francisco Bay Area, Nevada, Washington, Virginia, Colorado, Alaska, and more. My windows are open 365 days a year so I can hear the birds singing.

Beautiful, oak studded, rolling hills with cattle and vineyards. Think Tuscany! The beach is five minutes away.

I've owned a business in the town since we chose this area as our home - Klondike Pizza - located in the charming village of Arroyo Grande. We feel so fortunate to be a part of our community.

Our children received good public educations and never felt unsafe in their schools.

Through the years we have seen our town evolve and grow. We now have many great restaurants. We also have several venues for live theatre.

San Luis Obispo is a charming college town just minutes away.

What don't we have?
For me - not a lot of clothes shopping choices. However, we also DO NOT have a high crime rate, traffic, smog....

Arroyo Grande is not a cheap place to buy a house. So unless you are moving here from the LA or SF bay area, it's expensive. But if you are looking for a little slice of Mayberry, then Arroyo Grande may be the home you're looking for.
