4 Classic Experiences for Your Best ‘Classic at Pismo Beach’ Holiday
It’s officially that time of year again: the 33rd annual Classic at Pismo Beach car show is right around the corner, running from June 1st through June 3rd. For classic car aficionados, this is a must-attend event to see the pristinely cared-for classic cars driven in from all over. With cars from the 1930’s onwards featured at the show, each year is never the same and brings a new thrill as to what is in store.
While in town, why not enjoy more of Pismo’s classics? Here are four other ways to enjoy some of Pismo Beach’s best while going in and out of the event:
1. Grab a Pismo Beach cinnamon bun at Old West Cinnamon Rolls.
Old West Cinnamon Rolls are not your everyday treat. Baked in-house with a homemade recipe passed down in the family for generations, this is one of Pismo Beach’s most-loved spots. Nestled in downtown Pismo Beach, Old West Cinnamon Rolls is local favorite and tends to get quite busy later in the afternoon. For a better chance to avoid the line, it’s recommended you drop in during the morning.
2. Enjoy lunch by the pier.
When by the bay, what’s better than fresh seafood? Enjoy one of Pismo Beach’s best lunch spots at Splash Cafe, a low-key, beachy restaurant with a seafood specialty. A favorite dish is the clam chowder, served in a warm sourdough bread bowl.
3. Get your toes sandy at the beach.
Escape the craziness of the Classic by taking a beach stroll. Head down the stairs by the pier, or from the SeaCrest, and walk along the beach to enjoy the beautiful Pismo Beach. Just a few miles away is Avila Beach, another great option for appreciating the area’s stunning natural landscape.
If you want to get even more out of your time at the beach, rent a kayak from one of the many local vendors.
4. Experience a different type of car.
Does looking at all the classic cars get you excited for a driving adventure? Luckily, opportunities abound in Pismo Beach. Rent your choice of off-road vehicle and head out to the Pismo Dunes or Oceano State Recreation Area for some fun in the sand. Options include Pacific Adventure Tours, the largest Humvee tour company in the nation, and Sun Buggy & ATV rentals.
The Classic at Pismo Beach is one of the Pismo Beach’s most anticipated events of the year and is bound to excite. Be sure to complement this classic event with these classic experiences for an unforgettable getaway that is only possible at Pismo. Start planning your Pismo Beach trip today.
