Plan a Family-Friendly 4th of July in Pismo Beach
Independence Day is fast approaching. Now is the time to get your celebration plans in place. Pismo Beach offers far more than just beachfront fireworks for you and your entire family to enjoy a memorable 4th of July celebration.
Keep the party going with an extended stay. Here are six ways to enjoy your Pismo Beach 4th of July holiday.
1. Watch the Pismo Beach Fireworks with a View
It’s 4th of July, so fireworks are a must. But what better than fireworks over the beach? With our oceanfront location, the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel offers its guests fantastic views for watching the fireworks as they light up over the beach by the Pismo Pier. The fireworks will start around 9pm so why not enjoy a cocktail and a splash in the pool beforehand?
2. Attend Our 4th of July VIP Roof Top Party
If you don’t want to worry about finding a spot to watch the fireworks, attend our VIP Rooftop Party! SeaCrest is offering premium seating to view the fireworks on our breathtaking rooftop terrace. You’ll enjoy entertainment by DJ Muir and coffee & desserts by Willow Kitchen & Cocktails including: cheesecakes, brownies, lemon bars, and cookies throughout the event. Guests must have a hotel reservation booked before reserving tickets. (Book your room now.) Event time 8-10pm, $40 per person. Tickets are limited.
3. Enjoy Downtown Pismo Beach Celebrations
On Independence Day itself, celebrations at the Pismo Beach Pier parking lot and surrounding areas will run from 9am to 9pm. This free annual celebration includes a DJ and plenty of local vendors during the day before the fireworks show starts at 9pm. For those wanting a little more, there are two VIP experiences to choose from. Standard VIP guests can enjoy premiere firework seating as well as snacks, coffee, and hot cocoa throughout the evening. VIP dinner tickets are also available and include a BBQ dinner provided by F. McLintocks Saloon and Dining House. Head here for more information about the free and VIP celebration options.
4. Join the Doggie Parade
Bringing your furry friend with you on your trip to Pismo Beach? If so, you may want to look into the 4th of July Doggie Parade held in Avila Beach. The parade starts at 11am and goes down the Avila Beach Promenade, starting at the corner of San Miguel and the Promenade. There will also be a costume contest with a number of categories including best costume, best dog/owner look alike costume, and most rowdy award. Since the SeaCrest is dog-friendly there’s no problem bringing your dog to enjoy the experience.
To participate, your dog must be registered. Learn more about registration and the parade here.
5. Get Out on the Water
When at the beach, get your toes sandy and wet. Head down to the beach for a day of surfing, kayaking, or simply soaking in the sun. Pismo Beach Surf Shop offers both surf and kayak rentals with full and half day options.
6. Dine in Pismo Beach
When you want a break from the water, head over to one of Pismo’s many seafood restaurants for some local fare. Among the most popular is Splash Cafe, a casual, beachy restaurant with a seafood specialty known for their clam chowder and sourdough bread bowl. Other local seafood restaurant options include Willow Kitchen & Cocktails (located at the SeaCrest), Ventana Grill and The Oyster Loft.
Don’t let the fun stop at the fireworks. Enjoy a longer stay to get the most out of all our little beach town has to offer. Plan your 4th of July Pismo holiday today.
