Clams of Pismo and Whales of Morro

The Beaches of San Luis Obispo County

Morro Bay

Set on the stunning central California coast, Morro Bay unleashes a thriving playground perfect for visitors. Opportunities abound for sailing, kayaking and surfing, as well as museums, cruises and shopping. The area allows visitors to choose from adventures in Morro Bay State Park, the Morro Dunes Natural Preserve, and the Montana de Oro State Park.

Check out the monthly Art in the Park event, or special happenings like the Brian Waterbury Memorial Rock to Pier Fun Run in July and the Merchants Street Faire in early August. Then get out on the water for whale watching tours and some adventurous sport fishing. Sign up for a luxurious dinner cruise, or try your hand at surfing. Spend a day on land and choose from hiking, horseback riding and nature walks within view of the stunning Morro Rock. Visit the famed Hearst Castle, or check out the Museum of Natural History in nearby Morro Bay State Park. Invite yourself to a wine tasting at the Morro Bay Wine Seller, or try the fairways at the Morro Bay Golf Course.

Your options for fun are as unlimited as your options for lodging. After you’ve spent your day surfing, fishing and golfing, spend your night at one of three Best Western hotels in Morro Bay. If you're not going far, try the Best Western hotel on the waterfront of Morro Bay along Beach Street. Trust us, you’ll need the rest.

Pismo State Beach

Just east of California cities such as Pismo Beach, Oceano and Grover Beach, the Pismo State Beach a great family getaway along the central California coast. This California State Beach welcomes visitors with opportunities for swimming, surfing and sunbathing just off Highway 1.

Other than hiking, fishing and sunbathing, the Pismo State Beach is well known for its famous Pismo clam. Visitors are encouraged to dig around for the clam – that little guy known for burying itself in the sands of Pismo Beach. Nature lovers may also bird watch amongst the tree-lined dunes of the beach, and keep an eye out for the abundant population of monarch butterflies in the area. Need to dry off? Spend the afternoon at the Pismo State Beach Golf Course, or sign up for a trek down one of the many horseback-riding trails near the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

Rest that freshly sunned skin at one of two Best Western hotels in Pismo Beach. Head back to the beach after a great night’s sleep for more clam digging and sunbathing at Pismo State Beach – you’re new favorite vacation spot.
