Dog Friendly #CentralCoasting Itinerary

The following is a sample dog-friendly itinerary for you to enjoy during your next visit. You'll find plenty of things to do in Pismo Beach with your canine friend.

Day One

Upon arrival, unwind from your travels in your dog-friendly room at Inn at the Cove. Your dog will love the dog blanket, water bowl and most importantly the dog treats that are waiting upon arrival in your room. After getting settled in take time to explore the property admiring the tranquil oceanfront setting. Your dog will enjoy the dog designated lawn area on the south oceanfront side of the hotel.

As the sun begins to set take a quick 5-minute walk with Fido to Dinosaur Caves Park. This 11-acre oceanfront bluff top park is popular with dog lovers. Enjoy the gorgeous, oceanfront panoramic sunset while throwing the Frisbee for your pup.

Afterward, enjoy a delicious dinner at one of our favorite dog-friendly Pismo Beach restaurants. We recommend Guiseppe's featuring classic Italian dishes. 

Day Two

After waking up to the peaceful lull of the ocean’s waves, get your morning started off on the right foot by taking a 10-minute walk down the street to dog-friendly Zorro’s Café and Cantina, where they have a water dish waiting. Zorro’s offers an outstanding breakfast menu featuring a variety of options ranging from traditional breakfast items to breakfast burritos to Zorro’s specials like Chumash Chilaquiles.  

Now that you are fueled up for the day, it’s time to head to the beach. Pismo Beach offers a dog-friendly beach to the left of the pier. You will enjoy catching some rays and your dog will enjoy running through the waves and rolling through the sand. Don’t worry there is a shower on the beach where you can rinse Fido off after a day of fun!

Finish your afternoon at one of the many dog-friendly wineries in the area. We suggest Avila Valley Wine and Roasting Company or Kelsey See Canyon Vineyard in Avila Beach. You might also try Baileyana Winery or Chamisal Vineyards in San Luis Obispo.

Day Three

Enjoy the beautiful scenery that San Luis Obispo County has to offer with a hike in the great outdoors. Hike Bishop’s Peak in San Luis Obispo for a panoramic view or stay close to the hotel and hike the Ontario Ridge Trail for stunning ocean views. The best part: after your hike, your dog will sleep all the way home!

As your weekend winds down, one thing is certain; the memories you’ve made in Pismo Beach will last a lifetime. Below, see how to enjoy a Road Trip With Man's Best Friend from Martin Resorts on Vimeo.
