Monterey (CA)

A popular weekend destination for Californians of neighboring cities, Monterey is a beautiful coastal city with more history than most other cities in California. Most visitors arrive by car, as the popular Pacific Coast Highway runs through the city, but Monterey Peninsula Airport also serves many flights from neighboring cities and is located within a short drive of the city center.

Monterey State Historic Park is actually the old town, with its many historic buildings from the days of Monterey as the capital of the California territory. This area is the perfect place to really get to know the history of Monterey and all of California, and guided tours are readily available for visitors who don’t want to miss any important sites.

Being a coastal city, Monterey enjoys great access to some of the most prolific ocean views and marine life in the area. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is a world-class research and conservation facility, and one of the most popular attractions in the city. A visit to Monterey is bound to be a slow and quiet trip, the perfect antidote for California’s many other party cities. For ultimate relaxation, book a beachfront hotel along the Monterey coastline and really enjoy the stunning beauty of this city.
