For a real treat, take the breathtaking scenic drive up Coast Highway 1 to San Simeon and the famous Hearst Castle. Take your time along the way stop to stop and explore some of the coastal towns' many antique and specialty shops. Oceano has lots of character with small businesses, hotels and bed and breakfasts, restaurants; even a fun rock & roll diner made out of an old railroad car and decorated in a 1950s theme!

Oceano Weather & Climate

A Mild, Mediterranean climate describes the central coast of California that lies between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The area near San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach enjoys over 300 days of sunshine per year and very pleasant temperatures year round. The terrain is made up of sandy beaches, gently rolling hills and sand dunes, lush foliage and vineyards. Cool ocean breezes keep temperatures from becoming too hot in the summertime. Low clouds and patchy fog are common on summer days, but it almost always burns off by midday. Conditions are very dry, and the occasional summer thunderstorm produces so little precipitation that range and forest fires often result from lightening strikes. In winter, the semi-permanent Pacific Ocean high retreats bringing rain into the area from November through March. These storms are widespread and at times heavy.
