So what do I mean by half way. Half way from San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Monterey actually is one of the townships in a cluster of towns along the coast which attract the tourists during the summer.
I was told by a friend that I could not miss seeing 'Carmel By the Sea', and well this was the closest I could get which had a hostel. But really it's nearly as nice, if not more affordable than Carmel.
Main tourist attractions in Monterey include the Fishermans Wharf, and the Aquarium.
- Pros:The area is beautiful. The ride to Carmel
- Cons:Getting to and from by bus. Partially tacky tourist spots.
- In a nutshell:Monteray is an access point to a short family tourism stay.
In Monterey the big thing to do is the 17 mile drive. But nearly everyone does this in the comfort of their own... more travel advice
