Other activities
Pismo Beach stretches out for 17 miles from your deck at the SeaVenture, with plenty of activities to keep the kids busy for days on end: boogie board and surfboard rentals, banana bike rides by the surf, horseback and mini ATV rides on the Dunes. However, other beaches are well worth a visit: Avila with its renovated downtown, children’s playground and historic pier; Shell Beach for a picnic lunch on the bluff; and Morro Bay with its endless expanse of dunes, environmental preserve, and boat rentals. The tidepools at Montaña de Oro State Park are well worth a visit. The kids will enjoy bicycling along the shady Bob Jones path from Ontario Road to Avila Beach and the pier and a stop at Fat Cats for a hamburger lunch. Inquire at the hotel front desk for details.
