I'm considering going to San Luis Obispo but the only thing that is holding me back is the distance and how often I would be able to go home. I looked up amtrak and it takes six hours which is really long and greyhound is around 5 and costs around 80. Also, I checked airtickets and it's around 400. It'd be pretty pricy to go home every week or even every two weeks.
For those who go there and live around Los Angeles, how do you guys get home? I'm hoping I can convince my parents to let me drive but I don't think I want to drive that long. Is there a cheaper way of transportation or is driving the best?
