The Harford Pier in Avila Beach was developed in 1873 by John Harford for shipping into San Luis Obispo before the train came. It was also used by smugglers at nighttime for illegal movement of liquor. Now, the Harford Pier is a great spot for fishing, commercial fishing and dining. Or simply enjoying the view.
