Pismo Beach and its neighbor Oceano are cities on California’s Central Coast. It’s known for its wineries and many beaches. Oceano Dunes is the only place in California to camp and drive right on the beach.
The name Pismo comes from the Chumash language word for tar, which was gathered from tar springs in Price Canyon near Pismo Beach. The tar was a valuable product which the Chumash Indians used to caulk their seagoing canoes, called tomol, which traveled along the coast and out to the Channel Islands.
Its the perfect place for some Land Rovers to stretch their legs after so many days of mall parking lot duty.
