Morro Bay is for Lovebirds Keen on Savings this February

Enjoy Dreamy Lodging Specials, Discover Exclusive Food and Wine Discounts, and Experience Romantic Outdoor Adventures Together throughout February

Morro Bay, CA, January 24, 2017 Romance is in abundance all year long in Morro Bay, but with Valentine's Day and President’s Day three-day weekend right around the corner, the season of love is front and center. So naturally, it’s time to plan your romantic getaway, and if you want to save a few clams, Morro Bay is the paradise for lovebirds trying to do just that. There’s plenty of romance, adventure, culture and gastronomies to fall in love with in this quaint seaside village located on Highway 1 along the Coast in San Luis Obispo County, midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, and this February it’s more affordable to get away.

“Lovebirds flock to Morro Bay in the winter to enjoy our romantic sunsets, delicious restaurants and cozy hotel rooms,” says Jennifer Little, Executive Director of Discover Morro Bay. “Visitors will find amazing lovebird lodging specials throughout February, including offers to stay two nights and get a third night half-off, among others. Plus, every hotel guest in February will receive our Food & Wine Passport with more than $90 in food and wine offers.”

Lovebirds Paradise
Visually recognized from the north, south, east and west for miles away by the stunning Morro Rock sitting beautifully on the Pacific Ocean, Morro Bay offers romantic sunsets, temperate Mediterranean weather and all kinds of outdoor adventurers perfect for lovebirds. Some of the world’s best-known aphrodisiacs are sustainably farmed at the
Morro Bay Oyster Company and can be found at restaurants throughout the city. Situated on the pristine bay, this 130-acre marine farm can be seen by paddle board, kayak or from a guided tour with Lost Isle Adventure Tours.

Looking for a romantic dining experience on the bay? Book a Saturday brunch cruise with one of the many tour operators along the bustling Embarcadero. How about renting a kayak for two and paddling out to the sandspit for a romantic picnic lunch? Or hiking to the top of the Cerro Cabrillo for an amazing view of the Morro Bay Estuary, back bay and sandspit? Couples can also find their own secluded beach in Montano De Oro State Park, go horseback riding on the beach, fly a kite together or stroll the embarcadero on a tandem bike.
