Hip-hip hooray! The Pismo Beach Clam Festival starts this Friday! Back in the day, Pismo Beach was called the “Clam Capital of the World.” There’s even a type of clam named after the town, called the Pismo. Many residents in the 40’s and 50’s were filled with enthusiasm and excitement about the abundance of clams found in Pismo Beach, and created its most famous festival – the Pismo Beach Clam Festival – in 1946.

As part of a continued commitment to enhance our family-friendly hotel in Pismo Beach and your experience there, our team focused on implementing thoughtful changes that give our guests more—more fun, more space, and more amenities—so you can make the most of your stay.
Imagine this: you’re sitting on the warm sands of Avila Beach with your toes in the water, a drink in your hand, and the summer sun shining down on you. What could be better? Well… enjoying all that and more knowing that you booked with the best rate on Avila Beach travel through Avila Lighthouse Suites.
Although beautiful San Luis Obispo County boasts about 300 sunny days per year, of course even the prettiest of places are bound to have a few rainy days! On those few gloomy days though, there is still so much to do from Pismo to Paso that will allow you to enjoy a fun-filled vacation on California’s Central Coast. More rain means gorgeous, green hillsides and an opportunity to explore more unique spots on the Central Coast, so check out our ideas below and get started!
Here at Martin Resorts, we call the act of enjoying time “Central Coasting.” But Central Coasting is more than a verb—it’s a lifestyle. Taking time to feel the sand between your toes and the sunshine on your face while making memories with loved ones is what we live for, and the experience our guests can expect. We’re all about the little moments that mean the most.
There’s no time like the New Year to say goodbye to old habits and welcome the opportunity to make exciting lifestyle changes. As 2018 comes to a close, we encourage you to take advantage of the wide variety of outdoor attractions available on the Central Coast by making the resolution to say YES to adventure! Offering surfing, fishing, scuba diving, mountain biking, horseback riding and more, the rugged landscape surrounding our California coast hotels serves as an idyllic backdrop for the New Year. Below, find New Year’s resolution inspiration for an adventurous 2019!
