Morro Bay named one of America’s top beach towns
May 25, 2015
Morro Bay is one America’s 14 best small beach towns, according to the online travel publication Thrillist.
“The best place to stop along the Pacific Coast Highway? Morro Bay, where you can take in Morro Rock (aka America’s Gibraltar) or stay at one of the five-star resorts overlooking the ocean,” the review states.
Thrillist’s review of Morro Bay also says the Central Coast is “one of the most spectacular stretches of sand in the world,” since California has not managed to develop its entire coastline. Only one other California town, Laguna Beach, made the list.
Florida had three beach towns on the list, the most of any state.
Thrillist recommends that visitors explore wine country and Hearst Castle if staring at the sunset in Morro Bay gets old.
