Arroyo Grande Village, San Luis Obispo California

Description

Arroyo Grande Village is a nice little main street with a park and a swinging bridge. The buildings along Branch Street, the main strip, are kept up beautifully. There is a park square where an art market and a farmer's market are held. The farmer's and art market is held each Saturday from 12-2:30pm at the square (300 E. Branch Street). At the park square there are benches and flowerbeds and a delightful swinging bridge that extends high above a creek and some parkland. On the other side of the bridge is a pleasant neighborhood with a rotary park (a bandstand and a large lawn), a historical museum with roses and a gazebo, a barn with a red tractor that kids can climb, and an old belltower school house that is now a museum. It's a fun walk into the past. Summer concerts are held at the rotary bandstand on every other Sunday at 1pm from early June to early September. Here is the 2015 schedule.
If you're hungry, there are an assortment of restaurants and cafes on Branch Street.
