Are you looking for a vacation spot where you can relax, unwind, and get rid of everyday stress without dying of boredom? Why not visit Pismo Beach, California? Pismo Beach is situated on the central coast of California just about midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. You can get there by car, camper, boat, rail, bus or you can fly into San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport.
There are no large amusement or theme parks or crowds of people, just twenty-three (23) miles of beautiful sandy uncrowded beaches and sand dunes surrounded by golf courses, wooded areas, and small towns.
Accommodations are plentiful, with everything from campgrounds and RV parks, to inexpensive motels to hotels in various price ranges to luxury beachfront resorts and spas. There is no dearth of restaurants, you can find coffee shops, family restaurants, excellent seafood restaurants, and fine steakhouses.
Lie on a white sand beach soaking up the sun during the day and go for long moonlit walks along the ocean’s edge at night. Go whale watching for gray, humpback, and killer whales. View dolphins, sea otters, sea lions, pelicans, and seagulls. See huge colonies of giant elephant seals up close and personal, dig your own clams for lunch or dinner, visit one of the most spectacular Monarch Butterfly Groves in the country, spend a leisurely day fishing off the 1200 foot pier.
Want a little more activity? Play golf at one of the nearby golf courses, visit some of the nearby wineries, go for a short (under one hour) drive up the coast and take a tour of Hearst Castle, or a short (under one-half hour) drive down the coast and visit Solvang, the “Danish Capital of America”.
Still not enough? Take a one half or full-day sport fishing trip and fish for albacore, rock cod, salmon, and more. Go horseback riding through the Oceano Dunes and Beach. Take paragliding or kiteboarding lessons. Go ATV four wheeling, bodyboarding, or surfing, or take a 30 minute “flying boat” flight along the shoreline in a two-seater ultra-light “flying boat”.
