Monterey

Monterey is a city in the U.S. Family-friendly places like Monterey Bay Aquarium and Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park will thrill your kids. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Carmel River State Beach and Scenic Road Walkway. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Monterey: Capitola Beach (in Capitola), Big Basin Redwoods State Park (in Boulder Creek) and Big Sur (Ragged Point & Limekiln State Park). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Lovers Point, take an in-depth tour of National Steinbeck Center, look for all kinds of wild species at Monarch Grove Sanctuary, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Carmel Mission.
