1. Pismo Beach Pier
Right in our front yard we have one of the most romantic cornerstones to a perfect date – a stroll along the Pismo Beach Pier. Before or after a day of play or a great meal, you can walk and talk as you take in the breathtaking views, fresh ocean air and all the ambient sounds and smells of this idyllic beach. What better setting to say ‘I love you’.
2. Monarch Butterfly Grove
Strolling through the Monarch Grove is a unique opportunity to be in nature with your sweetheart. Enjoy the stunning seasonal display of one of nature’s most magical creatures – the monarch butterflies. As of February 1, 2017 more than 20,000 Monarchs currently hang in clusters from the eucalyptus and pine trees in the grove. When you include the grove as part of your game plan for romance, you can blame all the flutters in your belly on the monarchs.
3. Pismo State Beach
At this popular haven there is something for everyone, providing many opportunities to open hearts and leave bright smiles on your loved ones’ faces.

4. Margo Dodd Park
For some quiet alone time you can take to the trails along the bluffs at the Margo Dodd Park. You’ll also find stairs down to the rugged shoreline for a spectacular perspective of the Pacific, including views of the birds and wildlife common in this area.
