Let’s get into the swing of autumn with a weekend trip down to Monterey. With so many sites and activities in or near the water, this is sure to be an epic weekend!
Saturday will be a day of fun and adventure as we start out by kayaking with otters at Moss Landing. For three hours we’ll be able to experience the beauty of a natural California estuary while learning about the seals, sea lions, jellyfish and sea otters that call it home. No kayaking experience necessary!
After observing sea otters playing everywhere, we’ll have lunch at the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links. Rated the Best Public Golf Course in America.
Afterwards, we’ll hop in our cars to explore the 17 Mile Scenic Drive. This scenic road runs along the Pacific Ocean and takes you to an enchanting world full of dramatic coastal cliffs, snow-white beaches, mansions, and iconic golf courses.
We’ll finish our excursion in Carmel by the Sea and take in the sunset at Carmel Beach. This popular beach has been manicured to perfection with its white sand and beautiful scenery. We can also walk around Carmel by the Sea to discover one-of-a-kind experiences around every corner in this one-square mile village nestled along California's Central Coast.
Sunday morning can be spent either doing an amazing whale watching tour (complete with dolphin sightings) or strolling around Fisherman’s Wharf. Here you'll find a treasure trove of handmade delights! Everything from saltwater taffy, candy apples, chocolates and caramel corn at Carousel Candies to whimsical over-sized lollipops and truffles at the Wharf Wonka Chocolate Factory.
With so many activities to choose from in Monterey, there will never be a dull moment. Snag your spot now before someone else does!
