If you are looking for the perfect half way stop between San Francisco and LA, look no further than Pismo Beach.
It’s a super cute beach town! Lots of cute hotels right on the beach! We stayed at the Shore Cliff Hotel.
The room was charming, but a bit small. On the plus side, all rooms had a balcony with an ocean view. We would definitely stay again. They also had a nice restaurant right next door called Ventana Grill. If you stay at Shore Cliff you must go to Ventana Grill.
