During 2014 the City of Morro Bay celebrated a significant milestone, reaching 50 years of incorporation. The entire community was included in aspects surrounding the 50th Celebration Year of Morro Bay’s “Landmark & Legacy,” highlighting the town's beautiful location set against breathtaking Estero Bay and our landmark and namesake, Morro Rock, the area's diverse coastal community members,  and the fishing heritage and legacy that endures today. We are grateful to all the individuals that worked so hard to make it a memorable year. You can visit Morro Bay 50th’s Twitter or Facebook page that will remain up as a tribute to all that contributed.
