A safe bet for lunch and dinner. Enjoy the wide selection of beers while a village rooster or two struts around outside.

Excellent restaurant in Arroyo Grande near Grover. Top notch Californian food. Call or get there early as there’s often a wait.

Santa Maria style bbq and huge tri-tip sandwiches in a modest, no-frills place (though the rustic barroom has its charm and is where you can enjoy an Old Fashion or a beer while you wait). A favorite of carnivorous locals. Located in nearby Nipomo.

If you’re in Pismo, and like tacos, this humble hole in the wall offers the best taco selection on the central coast- 15 different kinds of tacos! Order to go and enjoy at the Pier!

Rent some bicycles in Avila Beach and enjoy the easy ride on this paved trail (fine for walking as well). About midway, stop for a glass of local wine at a little market along the trail.

Maybe the best scenic hike on our central coast, and definitely worth the 50 minute drive. Wide, easy stroll on a large bluff overlooking the ocean. You can also walk down to pebbly-beaches at a couple of areas, and drive to some others. There are also higher elevation trails nearby- particularly Valencia Peak.

Beaches
these beaches are listed in geographical order from our Studio...
Closest beach. At the time of this writing, Oceano Beach (which normally can be driven on in your vehicle) is open to pedestrians only. So enjoy walking along this relaxed, wide, and long stretch of beach lined by sand dunes.

The next beach over from Oceano Beach, Grover Beach is another nice walking beach to enjoy (particularly if/when Oceano Beach opens up to vehicle users again). There is also a wooden/plank strolling path for those who don’t want sand in their toes, or for those in wheel-chairs, etc.

Touristy, busier beach town, with shops, eateries, and a pier. Better surfing here than the other beaches, with surf rentals and lessons available.

About 20-25 minutes from the Studio, Avila Beach has a couple of beach spots and piers. It’s the best for year-round weather (almost always sunny in Avila even when the other beaches are overcast). Downtown Avila is cute and has eateries, some shops, and a pier (and is slightly less busy than Pismo). There’s the nice Bob Jones Trail (referenced elsewhere in this guidebook) which is a walking/bicycle paved trail that connects from the downtown area (bike rentals in town). Kayak rentals are also available in town. Also in Avila, down the road nearby, is another, larger pier that has a couple of eateries (we like MerSeas) and lots of lazy seals basking and barking in the sun. There’s also a dog beach in that area of Avila.
