Is skydiving on you or your teen’s bucket list? Get your dose of adrenaline by skydiving at Pismo Beach. Whether you’re a first-time diver or consider yourself a pro, Skydive Pismo Beach offers options to skydivers of all levels. Tandems start at 8,000 feet with 25-seconds of free fall and go all the way up to 13,000 feet and 60-seconds of free fall.
Since skydiving is subject to weather conditions and Pismo Beach is sunny more than 280 days a year, this is a perfect holiday activity to plan for during your trip here.
4. Hiking the Ontario Ridge Trail
This 3.1 mile hike with more than 1,100 feet in elevation gain is known for its phenomenal coastal views. Some sections are rather steep, making it ideal for older kids who want to work up a sweat.
Start the hike from the large dirt parking lot along Cave Landing Road. After a steep start, the trail will somewhat level out. You can make the hike an out-and-back, or continue along the trail to turn it into a loop through Avila’s residential areas. Given the steepness of some areas, hiking boots are recommended for this trail.
We hope you and your teens enjoy all of the treasures we have to offer here at Pismo Beach. Start planning a Central Coast holiday you and your family will cherish for years to come. Book your Pismo Beach vacation today.
