Cayucos, with a population of only 2600, is a short 20-minute drive north on Highway 1 from San Luis Obispo. In October 2009, Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel Magazine listed Cayucos as one of the "Coolest Small Towns in America." The reasons for this recognition are obvious to locals and visitors alike: an iconic pier, amazing beaches, great restaurants and shopping in an Old West downtown and amazing ocean-front real estate. Cayucos is a special little town unlike any other. Be sure to check it out!
