Morro-Bay is a lovely town that sits along the Pacific Coast about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrill, during his 16th century voyage of discovery, named the town's famous landmark, Morro Rock. Morro Bay is a working fishing village with pleasant year round weather, and a slow, easy way of life. The surrounding terrain is a combination of ocean scenery, rolling hills, year round lush landscaping and flowers. Tourism is the town's second largest industry, where people come to walk the beach, swim, sail, birdwatch or whale watch, play golf, eat delicious fresh seafood, or visit the nearby wineries. Boat rentals are available for visitors who want to enjoy the spirit of the Bay. The spectacular Hearst Castle and Montana de Oro State Park are also just a short drive from Morro Bay. The town of Morro Bay holds several colorful special events during the year, starting with Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival and Morro Bay Jazz Festival. Each December, the town celebrates the holidays with a Christmas Street Faire and a Lighted Boat Parade on the waterfront. For a relaxing, tranquil time at the ocean, away from crowds, noise and traffic, a visit to Morro Bay fits the bill.

Morro Bay Weather & Climate

Very mild weather all year long, similar to a Mediterranean climate, is what you'll find along the south-central coast of California. Located between Monterey County and Santa Barbara, this area of the coast enjoys almost ideal weather and over 300 days of sunshine per year. The terrain is made up of gently rolling hills and sand dunes, lush foliage and vineyards. It is known to have some of the best weather on the Central Coast. Cool ocean breezes keep temperatures from becoming too hot in the summer and the latitude and oceanic effects keeps things mild in winter. Low clouds and patchy fog are often reported often on summer days, but it almost always burns off by noontime. Precipitation in the form of rain falls November through March.
