History of Pismo Beach, CA
In 1769, the first European explorers passed through the Pismo Beach area, where they set up camp. Juan Crespi, a Spanish missionary and member of the expedition, noted that there was a Native American village in the area. Settlers slowly trickled into the land over the decades, but Pismo Beach wasn’t established as a town until 1891. It’s located on the Rancho Pismo Mexican land grant, which was sold in 1846. It was sold again in the late 19th century to the town founder.
The first wharf at the beach was built in 1882. In 1924, the first full-length pier was built, and it was made fully open to the public. This pier was renovated in 1985 after suffering from severe storm damage.
The name “Pismo Beach” is derived from the Chumash word for tar, as there is a tar spring in Price Canyon near the city. The city was once well-known for the Pismo claim. However, overharvesting and the protection of the sea otter (which eat these clams) makes these clams harder to find. However, it is still legal to pick clams from the beach. The popularity of these clams is honored by a massive concrete clam statue at the southern end of Price Street.
Pismo Beach has been featured in numerous TV shows and movies, including:
- A Night at the Roxbury
- United States of Tara
- Dragnet 1966
- The Monkees

- The Big Lebowski
- And many more
