Pismo Beach is a city in the county of San Luis Obispo in the Central Coast of California. Estimate population was 7,931 in 2014. The town of Pismo Beach was established in 1891. The name Pismo is from the Chumash language word for tar, "Pismu. The tar was gathered near Pismo Beach and a valuable product used to caulk seagoing canoes that travelled along the coast. Pismo Beach adopted the motto "Clam Capital of the world" in the 1950s when there were so many clams found in the areas. Pismo clams were so abundant they harvested with plows on the beach and drew thousands of clammers to the area. Today because of over-harvesting, few clams are found. The full-length pier was built in 1924 and was renovated after a storm damage in 1985. Photographed late afternoon.
