Home of Morro Rock
Morro Bay has a famous rock, Morro Rock. I know what you are thinking who visits a city based on a famous rock, but think of it as a highlight of Morro Bay. It is a place to eat great fish and seafood, relax and have some fun in or on the water. Morro Bay – Waterfront City – Morro Bay Harbor – Historic Fishing Village – Morro Rock – Peregrine Falcon Sanctuary.

Morro Strand State Beach
We stayed the night at Morro Strand State Beach – Campsite #33. This site offered a beautiful view of the beach and Morro Rock – just breathtaking.
