Monarch Butterflies at Pismo State Beach
By Robert Bernstein
Between Christmas and New Year's we were at Pismo State Beach to see the monarch butterflies.
Here are all of my photos.
The Pismo grove is very visitor-friendly. There is plenty of parking along Highway 1, a short walk from the grove. There are informative signs and docents to answer questions. There was even a shop where you could buy books and souvenirs!
I would not necessarily recommend making a special trip up there. In our case we were coming back from the Bay Area. But if you are passing through that area as we were, I would definitely recommend making the stop!
