This waterfront city in San Luis Obispo County, may seem like a sleepy town to pick for adventure - but its proximity to Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo and plenty of top quality seafood and wine bars will make you want to come back here again and again. Come in the summer and you can kayak or paddleboard to get a closer look of the rock and the sea otters that make this area their home.
This pre-planned package includes the following:
While a flight from San Francisco to San Luis Obispo is only an hour, the journey is much more interesting as a roadtrip along Highway 1. We'd recommend you to spend a full day to take the long journey along the coast and zoom back home on I-5. If you choose to fly, make sure you pickup a rental car at the airport - you'll need it.
An early departure and plenty of scenic stops will get you into Morro Bay by late evening. Check into your hotel and head to town for dinner. Wine and fresh oysters are on the menu! If you're traveling in the summer, you may even have time to watch the sunset as you dine. Don't get too late though, the bars and restaurants here close early!
Yummy, mouth-watering fresh oysters..
This wine bar will have you captivated.
Summer offers gorgeous sunsets during dinner.
This is the day for biking and wine. Head to Paso Robles for a winery bike tour. On the way back, stop in downtown San Luis Obispo for a very nice dinner and walk through the town before heading back to Morro Bay for a nightcap.
This is going to be really fun.
An absolute classic hangout in SLO.
Walk around downtown and soak up the culture.
Start off your last day with a light breakfast, a packed meal and go for the Bishop Peak hike or alternatively head to the Morro bay dock for a kayak tour to view some coastal wildlife. Bring lots of water either way you go! Once evening comes around, time to head back home.

The scenic route back home...
Summer is always a great time to visit Morro Bay. It is warm and lively and there are a lot of events. You could travel in the winter and fall as well, but keep in mind that you'll need those extra layers when you're by the coast. It can get windy and cold.
