Santa Barbara, the gateway to fun along the California Coast

California Coast The seaside village of Morro Bay is only two hours north

I call Santa Barbara “the gateway to fun along the California Coast.” Why? Because one of the many benefits of living here is the town’s close proximity to other beach towns like the quaint seaside fishing village of Morro Bay.
Morro Bay’s bustling waterfront offers a picture-perfect getaway for Santa Barbara residents who seek food, wine and outdoor adventures found in a gorgeous natural setting. Located only a couple hours north along coastal Highway 1 in San Luis Obispo County, south of Big Sur, Morro Bay offers year-round activities in an unspoiled slice of California. The town was named a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, and outdoor activities are a way of life, just as they are here in Santa Barbara. From oceanside golf, kayaking, sailing, hiking, fishing, surfing, biking, and bird watching, to kite flying, shopping, dining, wine bars, local craft brews and miles of unspoiled beaches, there is something for everyone.
Sitting majestically between the beach and the harbor stands the iconic and historic landmark Morro Rock, welcoming travelers from miles away as they approach Morro Bay. Located just minutes from world-renowned Hearst Castle, historic missions, breathtaking Montana de Oro State Park, and surrounded by vineyards from Paso Robles to Edna Valley, Morro Bay is a destination designed to fit any style and budget for families, couples or groups. Morro Bay also offers a myriad of year-round events including food, wine and music festivals, art fairs and car shows unique to the town.

Concerts on the Bay

Music lovers will be interested in the town’s upcoming Concerts on the Bay series, literally on the dock of the bay between Giovanni’s Fish Market and STAX Wine Bar, with the iconic Morro Rock as a backdrop.
“Blues by the Bay” will take place Sept. 30, 2017 2:00 – 6:30 pm featuring Blues legend Rick Estrin & the Nightcats and Elektric Voodoo. Funk by the Bay takes place on Oct. 14, 2017, 2:00 – 6:30 pm featuring
Orgone and Jungle Fire.
