"Long Driving" California Off The Beaten Path Tip by joiwatani

California Off The Beaten Path: 187 reviews and 238 photos

This is a nice plan. My husband and I went for a road trip for two weeks to California and we dropped the plan to go to San Diego because it will take us anothee 8 hour-drive from where we were. So, we opted to go to Monterey Bay instead.

Over there, we saw the Monterey Aquarium, the biggest aquarium in the United States and where the University of California base their marine department. We also visited the Ansel Adam's store. Over there, you can see most of the famous replicas of Ansel Adam's photography.

Also, we side tripped on Bodega Bay where we dined at this restaurant along the bay and can watched hundreds of birds feeding on the bay. This was the location shooting of the Alfred Hitchcock's famous horror movie, The Birds.
