You've got to stop and talk and listen to Rich Love talk about life, love and relationships. What a great story!Christmas tree at end of pier makes a romantic walk!

We love strolling the Pismo pier, but it really is nothing particularly special over other piers we've visited.

New pier at Pismo is really nice! The beach was clean, wide and long. It’s perfect for an awesome walk and exercise all day.

Fantastic pier to shop on and enjoy and coffee while enjoying watching at the surfers. Make sure you get a cinnamon roll from the old factory round the corner.

We have visited before... heard from a local that the pier has just reopened. It's a great place... peaceful, charming... beautiful! We were honored to be there on Veteran's Day this year and caught the celebration on the pier!

There are tons of good restaurants along the shore and the view from pretty well all of them is terrific. I think my favorite is Marie Callender's, although it's a tough choice.

What a gem, we stopped in Pismo on our way from LA to San Francisco. Pure bliss walking along the pier watching the dolphins and the surfers, topped off with a beautiful sunset this truly is a beautiful place.
