You and your friends and family might just be thinking of doing something different this coming Thanksgiving holiday weekend, something fresh and exciting. Did you know Pismo Beach has many award-winning dining establishments offering fabulous holiday dining? And Pismo Beach offers many lodging specials to make your holiday stay even more special and comfortable. Do you have canine companions to bring along? Check out our dog friendly accommodations.

There are so many things to be thankful for in Pismo Beach: the serenity of the expanse of our blue Pacific Ocean, the many exciting activities here on the Central Coast, the kick-back friendliness of just about everyone you meet, and so much more. It’s a great place to give thanks for our many blessings and have a great time as well. The Monarch Butterfly Grove is welcoming its new winter residents—it is a sight to behold! And so are the many species of migrating whales, traveling south to warmer waters for the winter. Have you ever been whale watching? April to early December is Humpback season. What a thrill it is to see these majestic animals in the wild, along with many other sea animals. They can be seen from the beach and the Pismo Beach Pier, but a super enjoyable outing would be to take a two-hour whale watching excursion out of Avila Beach.

Are you craving some much-needed rest and relaxation and maybe even a spa day? Take a look at our Health and Wellness page to find just the right way to feel fantastically rejuvenated.

Whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, of any other thankful get together, breathtaking Pismo Beach is awaiting you and your companions. We are thankful for all of Pismo Beach’s beauty and blessings, and we look forward to sharing this holiday season with you. Have a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving, Friends!
