The California Welcome Center, located within the Pismo Beach Premium Outlets, welcomed its two millionth visitor this week. Bob and Jamie Erickson of Kingsburg, California were quite surprised Thursday morning as they received their Pismo Beach gift bags.

Courtney Winters, Acting Executive Director of the Pismo Beach Conference & Visitors Bureau, was on hand to present the lucky visitors with a one night stay in Pismo Beach, compliments of the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel. This beautiful 5-acre bluff top property features 158 retro-chic rooms and suites with stunning, panoramic views of the Pacific.

Opened in 2006, the California Welcome Center, Pismo Beach is an Official California State Visitor Center, offering valuable information and services for travelers from around the world. There are currently 20 centers in California, with Pismo Beach among the most visited locations in the state.
