About San Luis Obispo County

How to Beat a San Luis Obispo County Traffic Ticket

The history of San Luis Obispo County can be traced back thousands of years to the Chumash people and their settlements near the coast. Yet, it wasn’t until 1772 when Father Junipero Serra founded Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, named after Saint Louis of Anjou, the bishop of Toulouse. After the Mexican-American War and the state’s annexation to the United States, San Luis Obispo became the first town incorporated in the newly formed San Luis Obispo County and remains the center of the county to today.

San Luis Obispo County sits along the Pacific coast with Monterey County to the north, Kern County to the east, and Santa Barbara County to the south and spans roughly 3,616 square miles. With a little over 283,000 living within its borders, San Luis Obispo is primarily a service economy. Service jobs account for nearly 40% of the county’s jobs, followed by government jobs at 21% and manufacturing jobs at 6%.

California Polytechnic State University is an additional pillar of the San Luis Obispo County economy, with almost 20,000 students each year. Additionally, San Luis Obispo County (home to the Paso Robles wine region) is the third largest producer of wine in California, surpassed only by Napa and Sonoma counties.
