The City of Monterey in Monterey County is located on the southern edge of Monterey Bay, on Central California's Pacific coast in California. Kick off your visit on the 10th (Sun): admire the majestic nature at Point Lobos State Reserve and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail. On the 11th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: enjoy the sand and surf at Lovers Point, then enjoy the sea views from Point Pinos Lighthouse, then look for all kinds of wild species at Monarch Grove Sanctuary, and finally don't miss a visit to Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read our Monterey road trip planner .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 61°F, and evening lows to 42°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
