Bird lovers will enjoy the Morro Bay Natural Estuary with its vast number of species. Thick fog covers the water at daybreak, but it lifts as the sun rises to afford an ethereal view for photographers and birdwatchers.
Sea otters abound at Morro Rock. Peregrine falcons, blue herons and egrets also call the rock home. The 50-acre rock formation is the last in a chain of now-dormant volcanoes.
The Museum of Natural History sits on White's Point Mountain and offers spectacular views of Morro Bay. A docent leads walks along the grounds, and exhibits inside the museum change frequently and typically pertain to the local ecosystem. Art exhibits feature many mediums, from oil paintings to local pottery.
Morro Bay State Park is an ecological preserve that features mountain views and hiking. Located right across the street from the beach, visitors can spend half a day here and the other half lounging by the surf. This park is known as the home of the Peregrine Falcon.
The Morro Bay Skateboard Museum will thrill both history buffs and youngsters. Featuring skateboards and related memorabilia dating back to 1930, it includes items from skateboarding greats like Stephen Pizzo, Pat "Skate Fink" Maphis, Dennis Allgeier and Jack Smith.
Morro Strand State Beach is the most beautiful beach in the region. The deep blue Pacific waters are refreshing, and the sandy beach provides the perfect place to relax and soak up the California sun. Kite flying enthusiasts and wind surfers frequent this beach.
