Welcome to Pismo Beach

Backed by a wooden pier that stretches toward the setting sun, Pismo Beach is where James Dean once trysted with Pier Angeli. Fronted by an invitingly wide, sandy beach, this 1950s-retro town feels like somewhere straight out of Rebel Without a Cause or American Graffiti. If you’re looking for a sand-and-surf respite from coastal road tripping, break your journey here
