MORRO BAY, Calif. — April is a perfect time to grab your best gal pals to explore, unwind, shop and indulge during Girlfriend Getaway Month in Morro Bay, and take advantage of special discounts on kayaking, paddle boarding, candlelit yoga classes, local boutiques and BnBs.

Imagine starting the morning off with your best gal pals taking a nice jaunt down the waterfront Embarcadero and out the harbor walk to Morro Rock and onto the beach, a great way to get in exercise before the day really begins. As a special reward, you and your BFFs can enjoy a girls brunch at Dorn’s, sitting on the patio overlooking the Embarcadero and the bay planning out what adventure to tackle next. A candlelight Yoga class? Shopping the citywide yard sale? Learning how to make a sun-kissed Pacific sea salt scrub to nourish, hydrate and protect your skin from harmful sun rays, or attending a special fairy garden workshop? Laughing out loud at “Menopause the Musical,” or special girlfriends adventures including kayaking on the bay or standup paddle Yoga? Sub Sea tours is also offering a special Girlfriends Getaway discount on bay cruises and whale watching, and an evening sunset cruise on the bay with one of the many other tour operators along the Embarcadero is a fine way to dine with the girls. There is no shortage of girl-cation activities in Morro Bay this April.

Take advantage of special classes, activities and discounts designed to inspire you to spend quality time with your besties in Morro Bay, the ideal location for a best friends getaway along California’s Central Coast. This quaint seaside fishing village with a bustling waterfront filled with restaurants, wine bars, boutique shops and harbor cruises and activities is the picture-perfect girl-cation destination.
