Dog Says to Human: Let’s Go to SLO!
There aren’t always opportunities to travel with your dog, but Pismo Beach welcomes four-legged friends with open arms. You can head to the gorgeous Central Coast without worrying about leaving your dog behind at a kennel. Arrive with dog and family in tow, knowing that you will all have an amazing trip together.
Dogs Love the Sand and Surf Too
Pismo State Beach is one of only a handful of state beaches in California that allows owners to take their dog on the beach. The only rule: Keep your pet on a leash. This is an easy requirement to fulfill when you are allowed the convenience of having your pet by your side as you walk the trails along the sand, lounge in the sun, or play in the surf. It’s always nice to have quiet company who is always eager to match your own pace, especially when you’re away from home. Find other dog-friendly beaches in and around San Luis Obispo.
Take the Trail, Any Trail
The San Luis Obispo area is known for its awesome hiking trails, but one particularly famous stretch of paved hiking trail is the 2.5-mile Bob Jones City to the Sea Trail. This trek is the perfect length for a dog and his owner or family. Get some fresh air, enjoy the scenic view, have a picnic lunch, or even stop for a snack along the way as you walk, run, or jog from San Luis Obispo to Avila Beach. Plus, Avila Beach has two off-leash dog beaches – Olde Port Beach and Fisherman’s Beach. For a trail-packed adventure during your stay in Pismo Beach, check out Big Falls Trail near Arroyo Grande and Black Hill Trail in Morro Bay. Get ready to visit plenty of other dog-friendly Central Coast trails.
Enjoy the Natural Beauty of SLO
A number of San Luis Obispo-area wineries and vineyards are dog-friendly, including the Changala Winery, Chumeia Vineyards, Venteaux Vineyards, Saucelito Canyon Vineyards, and Tablas Creek Vineyard. But you can also enjoy attractions like the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden with your pet. And be sure to make a stop at Dinosaur Caves, simply because it’s fun and one-of-a-kind with an unparalleled view that you and your dog will love.
Hang Out Downtown
Downtown Pismo Beach restaurants are incredibly dog-friendly, with establishments like the famous Shell Café making room for your pet to chow down right alongside you. And plenty of places offer comfortable patio seating so you and your dog can enjoy the glorious Central Coast weather while you have a meal. If you’re ready to get your shop on, there are a number of stores in Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo that welcome dogs, including the Pismo Beach Premium Outlets.
