Pismo Beach - Monarch ButterlfyWithin a short distance of Pismo Beach, visitors can taste wine from the California Central Coast appellation, play golf on challenging Pacific links, or visit majestic Hearst Castle. The city's event calendar is filled with year-round festivities such as the Fourth of July Fireworks Show, Jubilee-by-the-Sea, Dixieland Jazz Festival, Mardi Gras Jazz Festival, State Marching Band Review, and now two new autumn events - "BUTTERFLIES by the Beach & Blues" and "Woodies & Rods" car show.

Pismo Beach - Monarch ButterlfyButterflies and clams are two Pismo claims to fame (well, next to the big blue body of water to the west). Each year, from late October through February, thousands of colorful Monarch butterflies cluster in the limbs of Eucalyptus and Monterey Pines in the area - some say they look like yellow and orange leaves. These tough little beauties fly from as far away as Canada to escape the colder temperatures of the north before settling in at Pismo Beach's Monarch Butterfly Grove.
