DescriptionOriginally a private 38,000-acre ranch, Nipomo grew into a stopover on El Camino Real (The King's Highway) between missions San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara. Citrus orchards, vegetable farms and commercial nurseries thrive in the rich soil that washes down from the Nipomo Foothills. Thousands of blue gum eucalyptus trees, unsuccessfully planted to yield hardwood, populate the mesa area of Nipomo. The Dana Adobe, built in 1839 with the help of mission Native Americans, still stands. Nipomo is on a scenic stretch of US 101.
