"Take me to the seaside, take me to the sea." Monterey by ChadSteve1975

Monterey Travel Guide: 976 reviews and 2,994 photos

Halfway between the Mission and the Stars.

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 and Cons
  • 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.
