What are some differences between Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo?

Some I can think of....

Hotter in Paso Robles
More affordable cost of living in Paso Robles
More poverty in Paso Robles
More families
More entertainment for families and younger children

Cooler in San Luis Obispo
Less affordable cost of living in San Luis Obispo
Less poverty in San Luis Obispo
More college students
More bars and entertainment for college kids
More population

Any others?

Default differences

SLO is closer to the ocean and cute beach towns.

I'm not sure if its still true, since I haven't been to area in years, but Paso used to be closer to the wineries.

These days the wineries are stretched out along 46 between Paso and Cambria.

SLO is three words; Paso is two.

Actually Snort, if I am reading this right, Paso is one word.

The name of the city that Paso is the short hand word, as three words in it.

Depending on how city politics go and the economy's recovery too Paso is expected to grow at a rapid rate and be at 40,000 population in 2020 according the city's website. Expected to be at 44,000 population in 2025.

All though, weird as it is. San Luis Obispo grew by 400 population in this last year. I am very interested in seeing what happens with SLO's population for 2012. If it grows by another 400 or if it slows.

I forgot to add that Paso Robles is more spread out and SLO is more condensed.

You're right. My math is still in the remedial stages.
At any rate, I might add that Paso is destined to have a Harrods, while SLO is not.......poor SLO.

Better restaurants (on the whole) in Paso.
Paso is alphabetically before San Luis Obispo.
Cows are edgier in Paso (probably due to heat stroke) The milk is warmer too.
The grass is greener in SLO. (Maybe another reason regarding the cows being....)
There's a town square in Paso that looks a helluva lot like the town square in Prescott, AZ.
A similar town square has yet to be discovered in SLO.
Paso Robles is named for a bunch of trees, whilst SLO is named for a person. And! What's more, that person is French!
