OldTown Lompoc

Old Town Lompoc, in the heart of Lompoc Valley, is where locally-owned businesses, vintage architecture, historic treasures, and colorful murals come together to create a small town vibe unique to the California Central Coast.

Visitors enjoy visiting the antique shops and local shops, Cypress Gallery, Lompoc Museum, local eateries, historic sites, and more. On Friday afternoons, the Lompoc Certified Farmers Market sets up in Old Town, offering fresh-picked seasonal produce, cut flowers, baked goods, and more.

Dozens of murals – on street corners, in alleyways, and on sides of prominent buildings – have turned Old Town Lompoc into an outdoor art gallery. The Murals of Lompoc are one of the city’s top attractions, depicting scenes of Lompoc’s heritage, flower industry, historic sights, ethnic diversity, scenic beauty, and more.

Many murals can be viewed in Art Alley, located next door to Sissy’s Uptown Café – a popular spot for lunch, dinner, and a slice of homemade pie. Pick up a copy of the Mural Map and other brochures at the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau, or download a mural map in advance.

Vintage treasures, collectibles, and artisan gifts can be found at A Little Something Special and More, one popular locally-owned co-op in Old Town. For a mid-day pick me up, stop by South Side Coffee Co for a latte or mocha and a chat with the locals.

History enthusiasts will especially enjoy the Old Town Heritage Walk a one-mile, self-guided tour, featuring 18 stops along the way, including the Andrew L. Huyck House (1890), Artesia School House (1876), Lompoc Museum (1911), and the Italian Stone Pines (planted 1940). While in town, you may notice a few of the Lompoc’s treasured neon signs, adding a retro, vintage feel to Old Town. One of the most popular is the Rice Bowl sign, with three pulsing, fluorescent bowls of chow mein. It’s located at 117 West Ocean Ave.

In July and August, on Friday evenings, Old Town is the place to be for the Old Town Market presented by the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center. This bustling outdoor marketplace features a farmers market, community booths, live music, and themed activities each week.
