The California Welcome Center at the Pismo Beach Premium Outlets is reopening with a newly renovated office.

California Welcome Centers across San Luis Obispo County provide information to visitors including which restaurants to dine at and the most popular tourist spots.

The welcome center at the outlets now includes a selfie spot and more modern interior design to attract visitors.

Megan Leininger, manager of the welcome center, said they're figuring out how to operate during the covid-19 pandemic.

"We're still trying to figure out the day-to-day operations, but generally speaking we tend to focus on SLO destinations countywide and the beautiful wine collective as well as the Highway 1 discovery route," Leininger said.

The South County Chambers of Commerce and non-profit "Visit SLO Cal" provide funding for the welcome center.
