I live in a small town surrounded by several other small towns. And our small towns like music – a lot! Every town has a weekly summer concert in the park series, each on a different day of the week.
If you enjoy live music, you can head to Atascadero on Saturday night, Templeton on Wednesday night and Paso Robles on Thursday night. If you want to drive a ways to a larger city and listen to music in a historic mission plaza, head to San Luis Obispo on Friday nights.
I love music and attend a lot of these concerts with family and friends which allows us to build relationships and community. (… and eat. We bring BIG picnics.)
There is just something about a setting sun, a cool breeze and music you can tap your feet to that opens the door to good conversations and good memories.
