I lived in San Luis Obispo for thirty years. Back then it was Idelic; sadly now it is over crowded and the city fathers are so brilliant they have reduced the streets in downtown so as to allow bike lanes making it dificult to drive a car to say nothing of an RV! Additionally they have installed "bandits" parking meters to extort even more money from you and they run until 9PM. At any rate it remains a quaint town to visit and so much to do on the Central Coast.
My first night was at another HARVEST HOST property - SEA PINES GOLF RESORT in Los Osos. Again a very nice and quite place. And they have a good restaurant. Drive time to Morro Bay is a matter of a few minutes and San Luis Obispo is but twenty minutes.
A short twelve mile drive is Morro Bay and of course Morro Rock. Wonderful resturants from simple fish and chips stands on the pier to fine dinning. One of my all time favorites is DORNS.
This evening I had the special, Beef and Shrimp Bowl over rice, acompanied by a fine Paso Robles Cabernet My friend had Halibut. Both outstanding. For lunch I'd recommend another favorite and that is the HOFBRAU located on the Embarcadero. Good menu fresh fish and chips, burgers but I Suggest the Beef Dip sandwich.
Morro Bay offers a verity of things to do, from wale watching and kayaking, sailing to watching the Sea Otter colony just north of the embarcadero shopping area' Drive or walk towards the "Rock" and there ar the elbow you will see the Otters lazily floating close to shore.
Among other pursuits is take a drive up to San Simeon and take a tour of Herst Castle. While in the area drive a few miles north and view the Elephant Seals.. There are there year round; however the best time is January and February.
Returning to San Luis Obispo or Morro Bay and time for lunch, I recommend MAIN STREET GRILL for a quick bite. Here you can chow down on a wonderful Santa Maria Tri Tip sandwich. Locateed at the north end of Cambria.
