Morro Bay is alive with family-friendly activities, heightened by sun and sand. At a distance, you’ll surely spot Morro Rock, a landmark jutting from the water. Find lively sea life, such as dolphins, seals and otters, swimming in the bay. Explore the energetic Embarcadero, filled with shops and art galleries. From oceanfront dining to the oyster farm, the catch-of-the-day is always a good option. Fishermen haul in their bounty daily, ensuring you’ll never be left without fresh seafood. Morro Bay is a colorful picture of modern-day life in a true working fishing town. With Highway One on one side and the bay on the other, this city is all about play: kayaking, sailing, kite-flying, biking, stand-up paddleboarding and world-class surfing are all in a day’s fun. Plenty of outdoor adventures await as does an ice-cold glass of barrel-aged sour beer. From on-going excursions, like whale-watching tours, sunset dinner cruises and fishing charters, to annual festivals, such as the Surfboard Art Festival, Bird Festival and Kite Festival, there’s something for everyone in Morro Bay.
