This is greatly exaggerated by some as the median age is 36, not 65+. Sure there are some retirees. But there are also a lot of younger ppl including military with all the colleges and universities in the area, not to mention other businesses, etc... Just head down to the beach or walk through downtown and you'll see plenty of folks of all ages.

Default Job Scarcity?

Do you think that jobs or work is more scarce in San Luis Obispo than Monterey? I know that Santa Barbara has more work than either county.

We don't have a aquarium, zoo, or theme park that would attract many to visit. So what gets people coming to SLO? Is it the Mission or some other reason?
It is hotter in the summer and not really a coast town like the others.
