I'm fond of SLO. Its easily one of my favorites cities in Cali...small, quaint, and picturesque beyond words without the ostentation you find in some larger CA cities.

We don't go there for historic or cultural depth. We go there for perfect weather, gorgeous terrain, and pristine coastline in a small-city atmosphere. After all, it is the "Happiest City in America".

There is a nice peninsula called picnic point right at the University, and State Street is definitely something to see, as there is no traffic allowed and the shops cater to the college crowd. Historically and aesthetically I could not put it in the same category as Savannah or Charleston.
It sounds way nicer than where I went to college. I kind of wish I went to a school that was in a real college town, instead of constantly being in large metros.

I think its probably a bit more appealing to someone who's still kind of young than an adult who's looking for more. Unless I'm wrong, of course.

You are not wrong.

I voted only for the ones I have been to so far but have no reservations to seeing Charleston or Savannah, both look great and I will get around to it eventually.

Savannah comes across as a city that probably has great pizza. Thoughts on that?
I LOVE Savannah but....no. Pizza did not seem to be it's strongpoint-maybe there is a notable place or two though?

Santa Barbara. But San Luis Obispo comes close.
