As you can see from the this picture I took, the Rock is actually almost in the middle of Morrow Bay. Few sites are as easily recognized as this one along the coast of central California. Land Area of only 5.08 square miles in the city ofMorrow Bay, San Luis Obispo County. It has a population of just a little more than 9,000 people.
Morrow Bay, located about 20 minutes to the West of San Luis Obispo, California and offers a scenic setting which is still within a short commute of many amenities. It is only 30 minutes from the San Luis Obispo Airport. It is located on the famous Hiway 1 which runs along the California coast.
White sails dot the horizon as your gaze takes you westward. The chamber of commerce here, touts Morrow Bay as a great getaway from the urban existence. While this may actually be true, because at Morrow Bay natural beauty surrounds you: ocean, mountains, rich rolling hills--and then there's our beautiful harbor and the magnificent Morro Rock. The open ocean picks up the color of the bright blue sky, and there's always a light offshore breeze.
Morro Bay is a wonderful place to kick back, relax, enjoy each other, and walk on the beach. There's always lots to do: an 18-hole championship seaside golf course, boating, surfing, kayaking, deep sea fishing (they now even sell yearly and daily sport fishing licenses at the Visitor's Center there), biking, hiking, bird watching and just taking it easy and unwinding. And don't forget they have great local wines.
There are also a couple of winery tours locally as well.
You’ll experience a wide selection of accommodations from downright luxurious to completely affordable, and we're known for first class restaurants. If you love seafood you simply have to pay them a visit. Once you visit, you'll start dreaming up reasons to come back.
We have been there several times over the years and have always enjoyed its quaintness. Something not always easily found on the California coastal area.
