Get Ready for a Stellar Summer in Pismo Beach

Pismo Beach never has a shortage of things to do, especially in Summer. May and June are two of our favorite months for Central Coast events and celebrations.

Wine and Surf for a Good Cause

Wine Waves & Beyond

It's that time of year again! Wine, Waves, and Beyond is the classic surf and wine event that celebrates San Luis Obispo wine country and the unique Pismo Beach surf culture. The events - surf contests, movie night, scrumptious dinners, wine and beer tastings, a VW display, live music, and more - take place at various venues throughout the county and all proceeds support the Association of Amputee Surfers (AmpSurf), a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and rehabilitating individuals with disabilities through the healing power of the ocean.

Life's a Breeze at Dinosaur Caves

Dinosaur Caves is also known for offering visitors some fun elements of the prehistoric era, including climb-worthy giant dinosaur eggs (perfect for photo ops), not to mention an utterly amazing oceanfront blufftop view.

Fine Art in the Summer
