when in pismo, wear what Pisman's wear!
When I lived in Pismo it was all shorts and windbreakers, or sweatshirts, and beach sandals. Sneakers in Pismo is a no no, unless you are running on the beach.
Hats are nice...the wind blows much and when it is foggy the hair do's go wacky. face/body/lip moisturizer's
sunscreen boogie board and wet suit...just get out there and do it! :) shark repellent :)

Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa
Mission San Miguel Arcangel was founded on July 25, 1797 by Father Fermin Lasuen, Presidente of the California Missions Chain. Named for Saint Michael the Arcangel, it was the 16th mission founded in the 21 mission chain in Alta California.
Mission San Miguel's appearance is much the same as it was when founded. The inside of the mission has never been repainted. The pictures and the colors you see are the originals that were created and painted by Indian artesans under the direction of Esteban Munras. Today it is still a parish church.
Take a day trip to Morro Bay. Although this is a pretty touristy town, it has a great view across its harbor. With beaches, nature trails, bird watching, kayaking, restaurants, shops, 18-hole championship golf course, and a number of festivals through out the year, the town draws a number of people year round. Located north of Pismos along the Pacific Coast, this town is also a working fishing village. Morro Rock, seen in the photo, is its most famous landmark. Morro Rock is made of igneous rock, and is thought to be the remains of volcanic activity. Located in the town is Morro Bay State Park, which sits on a shallow lagoon within view of Morro Rock. This Park offers a small marina, a campground, hiking trails, a small museum, and bird watching. See my Restaurant Tips for the Giovanni Fish Market and Restaurant, which is a favorite eating spot for tourists and locals alike.
PISMO BEACH SAND AND SURF
"The smoothest sand on the Pacific Coast"
Pismo Beach is known for the largest smooth sand beach on the Pacific Coast. The home of the Pismo Clam with the clean smooth sand giving a mile long playground for beach activities on shore as well as in the sea. You can see board surfers, kite surfers, and skim boarders having fun every day. Clammers do appear with their clam forks and strong backs digging into the soft sand trying to get the prized Pismo Clam. Clam chowder and fish & chips are two mainstay food dishes in Pismo Beach.
Located at the midway point between Los Angeles and Monterey, Pismo Beach is the perfect getaway weekend or stopover. Many hotels and motels as well as restaurants fill the streets of Pismo Beach while the sound of the ocean waves fill the clean crisp ocean air. A great website shows the video of Pismo Beach.
