Morro Bay For Your Next Family Weekend Getaway

My wife has been inundated with holiday family sessions and was in need of a break. So I packed the clan for a short getaway to one of the jewels of Central California’s coast, Morro Bay.

Whether you are camping or staying in a hotel, Morro Bay is an often overlooked great family getaway!

Morro Bay, California

Situated a few miles from San Luis Obispo, Hearst Castle and Pismo Beach, Morro Bay is a small beachside community with large outdoor fun and activities.

During our short stay, the kids enjoyed exploring Morro Rock, walking the embarcadero, and enjoying the wildlife.

The Coffee Pot Restaurant – Perfect local spot for a breakfast with large portions.
Hofbrau – Stop in for a roast beef sandwich, clam showder or beer and enjoy the Morro Rock view.
Dutchman’s Seafood – Typical seaside fare with a family-friendly atmosphere.

The city reminds us of Monterey, but with three-fourths of the crowd. If you’re looking to escape the city or avoid amusement parks, head to laid-back Morro Bay.
