A Perfect Pismo Beach Weekend Itinerary
Planning to visit Pismo Beach in the coming months? There’s so much to do on the Central Coast, it always helps to have a hand in planning your itinerary. We’ve pulled together some of the most popular activities and recommended some of the must-see and little-known hot spots so you can take advantage of the best Pismo Beach has to offer.
You can’t truly begin having fun until you know you have a comfy room and bed waiting for you at night. Get started with your weekend away by checking into the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel in Pismo Beach. Drop off your luggage and hit the beach! Whether you’ve flown or driven to the Central Coast, it’s always a good time to stretch your legs along the sand and surf. Or get started with some serious relaxing and lay by the pool or take a dip in the hot tub. What’s for dinner? Take a little walk (only 0.4 miles) down the road to the delicious Ventana Grill. They don’t take reservations so plan on having an appetizer in the ocean-view bar until your worth-the-wait table is ready.
There’s nothing quite like waking up to the sound of Pacific Ocean waves. Enjoy the nature that surrounds you, then hop next door to Marie Callender’s for a filling, scrumptious breakfast (or brunch, depending on how late you care to sleep!).
It’s an easy walk from the SeaCrest into downtown Pismo Beach where the shops await. Stock up on your surf gear, pick up some fine art as a souvenir, or simply window shop. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, the must-try locale for lunch is Splash Café, famous for their clam chowder. Walk off your yummy midday meal on the famed Pismo Pier, then reward yourself with an ice cream at Scoop.
While every meal in Pismo Beach will be special for the ambiance and stomach-satisfying bites, make Saturday extra-special at Giuseppe’s in Pismo Beach. You’ll delight in authentic Italian dishes paired with fine wines. Still have energy after a leisurely meal? Get a night cap and bust a move at Harry’s Beach Bar.
It’s time to really inhale the nature and wonder of Pismo Beach and there’s no better time than a calm Sunday morning. Rent yourself a kayak or, if you’re more daring, a stand-up paddle. Make your way through the waves to the coves and beaches as you explore or simply take in the view.
Your weekend away is almost at a close, so let yourself relax by eating a late breakfast poolside at the SeaCrest before hitting the road. There’s much more to experience in Pismo Beach, so we’ll see you again soon!
