Put a Ring On It in Pismo Beach

Propose in Pismo Beach

‘Tis the season for getting engaged! Looking for the best locale for that most romantic date or an unforgettable destination for that once-in-a-lifetime question? Here are some of the best places to propose in and around Pismo Beach.

Hit the Beach for a Tried and True Proposal

People who get married on the beach often get engaged there first. There's nothing like the backdrop of the sun and surf of Pismo Beach for getting down on one knee. Build her a sand castle and decorate it with the ring box. Take a picnic lunch and find a secluded place behind a dune to pop the question. Wait for sunset and create a moment that neither of you will ever forget.

Show Her You're the Best Fish in the Sea

The 1,200-foot Pismo Beach Pier is one of California's most popular pier fishing destinations. Let your beloved know that you are the best and only catch in every sea by proposing in this picturesque locale. It's especially ideal for the casual couple or the truly unexpected proposal destination; you can grab some Splash Café chowder to go and dig in on the pier with diamonds for dessert.

Bluffs, but No Bluffing

Has your relationship been full of highs and lows, peaks and valleys, steep climbs and even steeper drop-offs? The Shell Beach Bluffs Walking Path, also known as the Bluffs Coastal Trail, runs parallel to the scalloped coastal cliffs 100 feet above the white sand beach. This is the place to ask the truly intimate question of "Forever?" especially when the two of you have already been through it all.

Let Nature Seal the Deal

If you're in love with an outdoorsy girl, then do your asking while you're out in nature. Margo Dodd Park is an ocean-bluff park that gives serious cyclists an opportunity to park their two-wheelers and take in the breathtaking ocean view. And if you're the playful type, hop on over to the Dinosaur Caves Park next door and hide that bling in a "prehistoric" egg.

The Monarch of All Proposals

You'll feel like a king and she'll feel like a queen when you choose the Monarch Butterfly Preserve as your proposal destination. In a place where thousands of delicate winged creatures support and shelter each other through the winter months (even if they are resting in delightful Pismo Beach), you can't help but have hope about your bright and beautiful future together as a couple.

Shout It from the Rooftop

If you're beachy people, but dressed up for a night on the town, there's no better way to end the evening than with a, "Will you marry me?" on the RoofTop Terrace at the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel. Hear the waves crashing in and enjoy the privacy of your own beach overlook, then let us in on your special occasion at the front desk. We'll help you celebrate as you settle in for the night - and a lifetime.
