Day Trips from Grover Beach
With the Grover Beach Amtrak station so close, you might want to check out the train schedule before packing up your car for a day trip. No matter how you plan to get to your destinations, however, you're sure to have an incredible time.

Grover Beach is only two miles from the town of Arroyo Grande and its one-of-a-kind Historical Town, featuring buildings, stores, and homes from the turn of the century. Surfers will definitely want to travel just over three miles to Pismo Beach for its famous waves, as well as anyone who likes to swim, suntan, or hike. Seafood lovers won't want to miss the chance to snack on Pismo's legendary clams!
For those who don't mind a slightly longer trip, a 16-mile drive will land you in the "happiest town in America": San Luis Obispo! Don't forget to visit the eccentric and stunning Madonna Inn during your visit.
