‘Tis the Season for Holiday Shopping in Pismo Beach

mini shopping cart with holiday balls insideVisiting family and friends for the Thanksgiving holiday, or just happen to be in Pismo Beach these last months of the year? There's nothing like capping off your travels than with some serious holiday shopping.

It's After Midnight in Pismo Beach

If you've napped off your turkey and gotten a second wind, then kick off Black Friday weekend and the official start of holiday shopping with a late-night trip to the Pismo Beach Premium Outlets. Midnight Madness at the outlets has become a tradition that's accompanied by savvy consumers, delirious revelers, and delighted window-shoppers. Visiting the outlets in the wee hours is an experience in and of itself - so if you're in Pismo Beach and shopping is on your agenda, this is a must-do.

"Label" Your Holiday Gifts

We're not talking generic shopping at the Pismo Beach Premium Outlets. The likes of Coach and Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Polo Ralph Lauren are teeming with exceptional holiday savings. And the extended Turkey Day and holiday hours make it easier for everyone to divide and conquer. While Aeropostale and Nine West may tempt your teens, grandparents will love to spoil the little ones with a trip to Carter's, while Dad can enjoy some down time at Nike or stock up for work at Van Heusen. Oh wait... you're supposed to be shopping for others. Well, no harm, no foul - you're allowed a few detours as you cross off your gift list.

Scenic Downtime for Serious Shoppers

What's a trip to Pismo Beach without some time on the sand or in the surf? The gorgeous, temperate climate of the Central Coast holds through late November and into December, making beach time possible. You probably won't be hitting the waves shirtless or sunning in a bikini, but the weather is ideal for walking in the sand, watching a stunning sunset, or just enjoying the peace and quiet of an off-season destination.

The Art of Holiday Shopping in Pismo Beach

The Pismo Beach Premium Outlets isn't the only worthwhile shopping destination in Pismo Beach. Take time to check out the local haunts in downtown Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo - the art galleries and shops are ideal places to snag some primo stocking stuffers, swap gifts, or special something for that special someone. Or make it a truly "spirited" holiday by gifting the most special folks with bottles of locally made wine.

Shop, Then Drop at the SeaCrest

Plenty of attractions draw people to the Pismo Beach area, from Hearst Castle to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, from the Oceano Dunes to the scenic biking trails. Even if shopping is not your first reason for coming to the Central Coast, we're willing to bet it might be one of the main draws from here on out.

But where to stay? Somewhere local, somewhere cool, somewhere with direct beach access. At the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel, guests love our contemporary design but retro feel. After all, this is Central Coast, California - a taste of nostalgia mixed with a bit of modern hipness is the kind of Pismo Beach Hotel atmosphere that satisfies serious consumers and laid-back window-shoppers alike.
