Brimming with brilliant sunshine, a vibrant local history and some very tan locals, the seaside city of Monterey offers the best of California, smack-dab in the middle of the coastline.
Spend your next holiday wandering through the historic harbour, hiking in a state park or making friends with sea lions at a world-class aquarium. On a warm arvo, just make sure you spend some time snoozing in luxey Monterey accommodation and soaking in the Pacific Ocean. After all, if you don’t get a little wet, you’re doing it wrong.
Located 183km south of San Francisco, Monterey is kind of a big deal. To see where American novelist John Steinbeck got his best ideas, stomp around Cannery Row—a charming street now lined with vintage boutiques and cafes that will take you back in time.
From there, you’ll be a short walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Chill out with some penguins and learn about the crashing waves you’re dying to dive into.
Head east to pick up some souvenirs and snap some selfies on the boardwalk at Old Fisherman’s Wharf. Keep following the sound of the tide to Monterey State Beach and ditch your walking shoes for bathers and bare feet.
After dark, tuck into one of the old-school pubs and get a good night’s sleep in one of lastminute.co.nz’s hotels in Monterey. Not ready to call it a night? Book awesome accommodation in San Francisco and let your freak flag fly with a night on the town!
Touch down at Monterey Regional Airport (MRY), located just 6km east of the city centre. California is a driver’s playground, so rent some sporty wheels from lastminute.co.nz and take the scenic route!
