Let’s take a deeper look at the city’s ranking on the Livability list, and why Righetti is making the promise of SLO living even greater.

Come on, get happy

“It’s no wonder that travelers wanted to make a pit stop in this radiant California city, which has carved out a reputation for being the happiest place in America,” they said. The “average 300 days of sunshine every year and with more than 30 miles of trails in the city limits alone” certainly has something to do with it, and so do new-home communities like Righetti that provide the ideal foundation upon which to build an incredible life.

Laid-back lifestyle

“Its laid back California lifestyle and stunning natural beauty make it an obvious choice for our Top 100 Best Places to Live.” That casual nature with a zest for life is continued at Righetti. Here, you can spend the day exploring one of the many area wineries.

So much to do

“With more than 30 miles of trails in the city limits alone, it’s a sun-soaked paradise for any outdoor lover. Plus, some of the most beautiful beaches are located in SLO, including the family-friendly Morro Bay and Cayucos with its sweeping views.” And all of it is within a short jaunt from home when you live in the new homes in San Luis Obispo at Righetti.


“Love wine? The warm and sunny climate also provides the perfect setting for more than 280 wineries,” they said. Once considered a hidden gem, the SLO wine country is developing quite a following. Wine Enthusiast magazine named San Luis Obispo one of its top 10 wine destinations last year, and the wineries’ convenience to Righetti means you can enjoy a glass anytime you want.


“San Luis Obispo is nestled halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.” That puts it in the ideal spot to explore all of the state—should you ever want to leave your new home in San Luis Obispo!


Excellent educational facilities at every level are a natural attraction for families. “SLO is also home to the prestigious and nationally-ranked California Polytechnic State University, a university known for its School of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Its K-12 schools are also top-notch, with six of SLO County’s high schools rated among the nation’s best,” they said.

Culture and entertainment

The city also offers a well-rounded cultural experience and a multitude of entertainment options. “Although the city is extremely family-friendly, its university presence means there is an excellent culture and entertainment scene,” they said. “Movies and theater are big here, as shown by the gorgeous 1942 Art Deco Fremont Theater and the incredible solar-powered Palm Theater. Each year, the city celebrates classical music with its Festival Mozaic, a week in July packed full of classical performances and experiences. The city shows off its quirkiness with its famous 70-foot-long Bubblegum Alley, where passersby stick their chewed gum along the walls.”
