The City of San Luis Obispo is saying welcome in a big way with a new sign in the heart of downtown.

The new sign is on the corner of Morro and Monterey streets, on the city's visitor information building. Officials for the city said that tourism has grown so much, and they want everyone to know that the city welcomes neighbors as well as tourists.

The sign was created to make it easy for anyone who is looking for information to find it. The new sign also lights up the downtown area with neon colors that light up at sunset.
