Morrow Bay Christmas | I-5 Exit Guide

With boat-filled harbor and miles of beautiful beaches, Morro Bay celebrates the spirit of this fishing village in maritime style during holiday season. Find festive holiday trees made out of crab pots throughout town, historic tall ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain in the harbor during November and December, Santa’s House on the Embarcadero, 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.”

Hearst Castle and Wine Make us Merry!
Holiday cheer is in abundance in and around Morro Bay. Located on California’s Central Coast on scenic Highway 1 just minutes from the festive holiday tours at Hearst Castle, and wine tasting in Paso Robles and Edna Valley Wine regions, Morro Bay is the place to holiday. Paso Robles and Edna Valley are home to many wine touring companies that will come to Morro Bay and pick you up from your hotel.

Fresh Local Crab on the Menu
During the holiday season, locals and visitors rave about the fresh and local seasonal crab found in abundance at Morro Bay seafood markets and restaurants. A true treat for the holidays, don’t miss out!
