      Living in Morro Bay, CA was one of the greatest experiences I ever had. I was able to see a lot and do a lot. I stayed here for a very short time, however due to the beautiful coastal scenery, I was able to explore this city quite often. This city has some of the most beautiful homes around the water. The cost of living has been steadily rising over the past few years, and homes are starting to be quite expensive. There is lots of opportunity for work here.

      The best areas in Morro Bay, CA were the coastal scene and the restaurants. There was so many different restaurants to eat at every day. Some of my favorite restaurants here was the Blue Sky Bistro located on Embarcadero Street. Dutchman’s Seafood House was also an excellent seafood restaurant located on Embarcadero as well. The weather here is unbeatable. I never experienced any other place that had weather like this place. The sun was always shining.
