Pismo Beach

Pismo Beach, CA Real EstatePismo Beach is a beach city in southern San Luis Obispo County, in the Central Coast area of California, United States. The population was 7,655 at the 2010 census, down from 8,551 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Five Cities Area, a term used to describe the cluster of cities that are present in that area of San Luis Obispo County.

 

Pismo Beach adopted the name “Clam Capital of the World” in the 1950s. The city holds the Clam Festival every October, complete with clam chowder competitions and a clam-themed parade. At the southern end of Price Street upon first entering Pismo Beach, a gigantic concrete clam statue greets visitors. Clamming once drew thousands of clammers to the beach during low tides and is still legal; however, due to over-harvesting by humans and the protected sea otter (which feasts on clams), few clams are to be found. An 8 inch shell of the Pismo clam (Tivela stultorum) is on display at the Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce.

 

In “Ali Baba Bunny”, Bugs Bunny and his travelling companion Daffy Duck emerge from a burrow, believing they have arrived at Pismo Beach “and all the clams we can eat”.

 

In one of the later episodes of “Dragnet 1967”, Frank Gannon retires to Pismo Beach and in explaining his plans to Joe Friday, he states his reason, “The clams, man. The clams.”
