Monterey, CA is simply an amazing place to visit. We have been there so many times over the years from a simple day trip to Fisherman’s Wharf with company, to an extended stay biking along 17-mile-drive and a visit to the shops, restaurants and views of Pebble Beach and Carmel. There is simply something for everyone in Monterey from outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking, biking, surfing and playing golf to Monterey Family friendly visits to the Monterey Bay Aquarium – a MUST see if you visit (and then don’t miss the dessert shops along Cannery Row). You just have to #GrabYourMoment in #Monterey and enjoy!


Some of our favorite activities include getting breakfast and roaming the antique stores in the precious town of Pacific Grove, relaxing on the beaches at “Lover’s Point”, Asilomar and Carmel (which are dog-friendly), eating delicious organic meals and enjoying unbeatable Monterey, CA wines from the local wineries and my absolute favorite thing to do – stopping for photographs along 17-mile drive where the photo ops never disappoint.
