Pismo Beach has been populated for at least 9,000 years. The name is derived from the Chumash Indian word for "tar." You won't find much tar at Pismo Beach these days, but what you will find is a growing, caring community.

The city of Pismo Beach was founded in 1881 and incorporated in 1946. There are currently fewer than 9,000 residents, but that number is growing rapidly. The area has always been a prime recreation spot. This small city boasts more than 30 restaurants and more than 50 hotels, motels, inns and RV parks.

The 1,200-foot Pismo Pier is a prime place for fishing and watching the glorious sunsets. The weather is mild year round. Beach volleyball tournaments are one of the most popular activities on the wide, clean beaches. You can also golf, scuba dive, and explore the Monarch Butterfly Grove or one of the many beautiful parks, which are in great demand for weddings.
