Plan a Last-Minute Family Vacation to Pismo Beach
Summer isn’t over yet! There’s still time to squeeze in a quick vacay before the kids head back to school, and there’s no better place to do your playing than in Pismo Beach.
Take to the Sands – On Wheels
Those funky-looking Segways aren’t reserved for sidewalks alone! Self-guided tours are the name of the game so take to the sands of Pismo Beach on a two-wheeled, off-roading rental to get a unique look at the Central Coast and appreciate some spectacular views. Or pile the family into a double surrey for some beach cruising, stopping along the way to check out tide pools filled with sea life, otters, elephant seals, and whales (in season). Bonus: This clever way to get a glimpse of Pismo is sure to up your “cool” factor with the kids.
Get Up Close and Personal with Sea Life
The Central Coast Aquarium gives you and the fam the opportunity to admire the Central Coast’s water-dwellers at length. From jellyfish to clownfish, sharks to sea stars, this public visitor center is just steps away from Avila Beach and the boardwalk.
Your kids will never forget the interactive exhibits and hands-on experiences allowing them to truly explore sea life, from floating labs to discovery labs to private tours. There are even feeding tours offering a journey through the aquarium’s exhibit hall while an aquarist guide feeds lunch to marine animals and provides attendees with an opportunity to touch some of the animals, including a swell shark.
Strike Out – In a Good Way
Nothing brings a family together and makes memories like some good, old-fashioned fun. Enter: Cosmic bowling from 8 p.m. to midnight on Saturdays at the beloved Pismo Beach Bowl. It’s a vacation after all, so let the kids stay up a little later than usual so you can all get a taste of this retro pastime. With an arcade and pool tables, your kids will stay occupied, and with a premium selection of beer, you can kick back and relax.
