Pismo Beach is known to many Californians as one of the best surf spots in the country, but there is so much more to do in Pismo Beach than just hop on your board and jump in the Pacific for a surf session. While that is indeed one of the favorite activities of residents of the Central Coast city, there are many other activities that are enjoyable for those who are not willing to slip on a thick wetsuit to deal with the sometimes-chilly waters.
Adam Kutner, a frequent visitor to the area and a non-surfer, enjoys the laid-back atmosphere of the city and is often drawn to the beach for a bit of quiet relaxation. While the ocean is a draw for Kutner, he has frequently said that he comes to Pismo Beach for reasons beyond just the sand and water.
One of the more interesting attractions of the surf community is its growing status as a wine producer. Of course, the vineyards of Napa Valley are California’s most famous, but the Central Coast has produced its fair share of exceptional wines and can claim a keen understanding of the nuances of the winemaking process.
Pismo Beach is therefore home to many events that are of interest to wine enthusiasts, and Kutner has noted that these events are particularly enjoyable due to the proximity to the Pacific Ocean and the fact that they are sometimes held in conjunction with film festivals that showcase the area’s rich history and character.
