Pismo Beach Travel Guide
See what we mean about retro?
When it comes to road trips, old school is always best. Which is why, when we tok a ride up Highway 1 last weekend, we decided to make an overnight pitstop at Pismo Beach near San Luis Obispo, having been told by the New York Times that it's a “throwback to endless summers gone by”. And we plumped for The Pismo Beach Hotel seeing as it was, at the time of booking, top of the TripAdvisor list and sounded pretty retro with its 1937 building bang in the middle of town. The photos on the website didn't look too appealing, but hey, we thought, it's only for a night and they sounded nice on the phone.
