“An oasis from the 9-5.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

The Monterey area has something for everyone. From hiking to biking to wine tasting, dining, brewery visits, shopping. The list goes on and on. My husband and I wished that we had more time to spend here. Our day visit was too short...but we look forward to going back again!

The cannery district on Monterey Bay with the aquarium, lots of sea otters eating abalone. This is a cool place.

“Monterey is gorgeous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

Monterey Bay is an amazing little area in Coastal California. My husband and I lived here for a short time and we loved it! If it were more affordable, we would have considered calling it our permanent home. It has lots of tourist activities but also has some less traveled roads. There is a lot of great wine around and also a chance to see lots of sea life including otters, sea lions, seals, and a variety of birds. If you are traveling out west and have the time/money definitely go to Monterey Bay for a few days (or a week or more) you will not regret it!
