Charming Waterfront Town – Morro Bay, CA
We arrived in Morro Bay late afternoon. After settling into our hotel, we headed down to the waterfront to check out the town. Morro Bay’s most famous landmark, Morro Rock, welcomes you upon arrival. It sits between the harbor and the beach, and belongs to a series of ancient volcanic plugs called the Nine Sisters. They are situated between the cities of Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo.
After seeing all the boats out on the bay, we decided we needed to be on one! We had heard about a Tiki Boat Booze Cruise and went searching for it.
If you have a chance to ride on the tiki boat, do it! The price can’t be beat, plus it’s a great way to see the Bay, learn some local history, and of course be entertained. This boat has a bar on board, and the Captain mixes your drinks. I recommend the Leaky Tiki! Yum! Once you have your drink in hand, your tour begins with the Captain playing the theme song from Gilligan’s Island! I’m not kidding… I did say it was entertaining!
After our cruise we were ready for dinner. The Embarcadero is lined with shops and restaurants, so we asked the captain for a recommendation. We were looking for good food, drinks, and more entertainment. The Captain recommended the Otter Rock Café. It did not disappoint! The food and drinks were great, and the entertainment fantastic! We were lucky enough to catch the Phil Friendly Trio. They are a rockabilly band from Los Angeles that frequently plays in the area. Check them out the next time they’re in Morro Bay… Just make sure you have on your dancing shoes!
