Now is the perfect time to visit Morro Bay.  Our mild climate keeps the temperatures pleasant throughout the year.  This means that winter and summer don’t feel all that different, but winters are less crowded.  And with less visitors this time of year there are great deals to be had by those that do venture our way.
