The Perfect Pismo Beach Mother’s Day Itinerary

While we should really take every possible opportunity to thank dear mom for everything she does (thanks mom!), we’re grateful there’s one day to especially show our love, and grateful for a beautiful place like Pismo Beach to celebrate in style – her style.

This Mother’s Day consider bringing mom to Pismo Beach for a most memorable Mother’s Day, where she can lounge in the sun with the sand between her toes, take in beautiful views and fresh spring air, enjoy delicious food and drink prepared for her, just the way she likes it – and more. Here’s a perfect itinerary to please every mom, in time for her special day.

But First, Brunch!

Every mom deserves to sleep in on Mother’s Day. Once she wakes, start the day off right by bringing her coffee or tea in bed along with your bright smile. Then transport her to her favorite Pismo Beach breakfast, brunch or lunch, depending on how late she likes to sleep of course.

Nurturing the nurturer is one of the best gifts for moms. Let her take the morning (or even the whole day) off from cooking – and let some of the finest Pismo Beach restaurants turn a daily task into a treat with fresh market veggie omelettes to gourmet pancakes or waffles, seafood specials and of course bottomless mimosas.

Some great places to consider, with a range of ambiance for the whole family, include: the SeaVenture, with a pre fixe Mother’s Day menu full of local flavor and flair, Adelina’s Bistro, serving a special Mother’s Day Brunch (you’ll want to make reservations), reliable Penny’s All American Cafe, with something for everyone in the family, or The Spoon Trade in Grover, a unique take on fresh local fare in partnership with local farmers and fair trade vendors. If she prefers breakfast in bed and you’d rather not be the one to make it, Mon Ami offers breakfast takeout or delivery, including sweet or savory crepes. Meanwhile, the first glass of champagne is free for mom on Mother’s Day at a local favorite, Shell Cafe.

Her Day, Her Way

With a satisfying meal in her belly, take mom to do whatever may lift her spirit and brighten her smile: pampering, shopping, dancing, playing or a walk along the beach. Moms love to make memories with her family and Pismo Beach has all kinds of ways to make it happen.


If she needs pampering, and what mom doesn’t, find your way to Zada Salon & Spa, just a stone’s throw from the beach. Here, besides massage, facials and the usual spa treatments, they also offer surf lessons for that extra adventurous mom looking for fun for the whole family.

Mom can also find a massage (including hot stone) and a mineral soak at the Avila Hot Springs or Sycamore Mineral Springs Spa. Whatever she needs, Pismo Beach and surrounding area spas are sure to please.


From boutique browsing to bargain hunting at the outlets, mom can shop til she drops and find just what she’s looking for, even if she doesn’t know what that may be. Take mom on a stroll downtown to shops like Pismo Beach Surf Shop, The Shoe Tree, Heart’s Desire Soap Company, Tastes of the Valleys Wine Shop, and so many more. For a great day at the outlets, you don’t have to go far to the Premium Outlets of Pismo Beach.

Live Music

A local favorite, the Damon Castillo Band will once again entertain moms and families outdoors in the beautiful grassy lawn at the Dinosaur Caves Park, overlooking the ocean bluffs of Pismo Beach. This free concert, sponsored by the the Pismo Beach Parks & Recreation Department kicks off The Pacific Breeze Concert Series, running all spring and summer. For more information, please contact the Pismo Beach Parks & Recreation Department at 805-773-7063.

Life’s A Beach…

At least for one day. Even if it may go without saying, we want to remind you that sometimes all mom needs to be totally satisfied is a walk on the beach. Pismo Beach has the soft sand, a perfect spring breeze, the pier, cliffs and cave, and the great Pacific ocean creating a soothing background to take mom’s day from good to great. Whatever you do, find the time to get in a stop at Pismo Beach.

Wine Down

Why not create a Mother’s Day Happy Hour just for mom? Whether it’s a sunset picnic at one of the local wineries or an in-town tasting room flight to cap a perfect day out, let mom wind down with her favorite locally aged flavors. Check out to find a perfect location. To stay in town, Pismo Beach’s most popular tasting rooms include: Sans Liege, Tastes of the Valleys, and Puffers of Pismo.

Make Mother’s Day Last – Turn it into a Getaway!

Now, if you know what Mom really needs is a whole day AND night away, give her what she wants. Treat your Mom with the ultimate gift of a night (or two) at the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel in Pismo Beach. Want to give your mom even a little something extra? Add-on our Mom’s Getaway Surprise and she’ll receive a bottle of wine, a lovely rose and chocolates in her room.[1]
