Enjoy a delicious time at the coast this winter in Morro Bay! This fun-filled fishing village serves up the freshest ocean-to-table cuisine, including two types of Morro Bay oysters and a plethora of local sustainably caught seafood. Morro Bay is also bursting with farm fresh produce, local wines, craft beer and fresh roasted coffee houses, not to mention decadent homemade desserts. After dining along the active waterfront, tour one of the many museums and art galleries that line the Embarcadero. Head out to Morro Rock along the Harbor Walk and engage in a little wildlife watching. Sea otter families, harbor seals, pelicans and Peregrine falcons are just some of the #sealebrities in Morro Bay!

Public Transportation

Perfect for: visitors who want to put their feet up, leave the logistics to someone else, and take in the landscape as it passes by.

Did you know Morro Bay Transit has its own bus route around town? The entire route from one end of Morro Bay to the other takes about an hour, and from the stop at City Park you can connect to the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) routes which serves the surrounding areas. Don’t want to wait at the bus stop for the fixed route? Use call-a-ride and schedule your pickup time and pickup location. All that’s left to do is sit back and relax and be transported where you want to be. Local transportation is an affordable option. You’ll even find an old-fashioned trolley running throughout downtown and the embarcadero during the summer for an extra fun way to move around Morro Bay!
