How this Maritime Village celebrates the holiday season

There's always a lot going on in and around the active seaside town of Morro Bay. Visually recognized from the north, south, east and west for miles by the colossal rock, aka Morro Rock, Morro Bay is centrally located between Los Angeles and San Francisco on scenic Highway 1 in San Luis Obispo County, surrounded by miles and miles of beautiful hiking trails with breathtaking views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean. 

With boat-filled harbor and miles of beautiful beaches, Morro Bay has become popular for celebrating the spirit of this fishing village in maritime style during the holidays. During your seaside stay, you’ll find festive holiday trees made out of crab pots throughout town, historic tall ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain in the harbor during the festive season. There are also two lighted boat parades, a paddle parade and so much more.

"Morro Bay during the holidays is a fun place to visit," says Jennifer Little, Morro Bay Tourism Manager. "Crab season is open and abundant, boat parades and tall ships in harbor, nearly 30 crab pot holiday trees light up town, and local wine tasting and Hearst Castle are minutes away. We've got so many ways to celebrate the holidays with family and friends."
