Monterey Bay takes my breath away!
Jan 2021 • Couples
One of the most beautiful & scenic places to wonder about in California. A coastal area that lets you drive along the ocean and is one of the best places to visit. Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, and the Aquarium are all wonderful places to spend time. There are endless hidden gems you can explore along the way that will make your heart burst with awe and joy.
Spot some whales, sea lions, seals, and otters this place is bursting with wildlife. There is so much to be said about a county that boast to be the home of Big Sur, Carmel, Pebble Beach and some of the most beautiful National Parks in the
Nation. Truly the epitome of a vintage California or at least as close as it gets!

Too vague

The Monterey bay is huge, and rating it is a few notches below giving the Pacific Ocean 5/5. It’s a beautiful place but I think it’s worth it to be more specific about locations when rating them. It is teeming with wildlife, all you have to do is look at the water for a few minutes and you are likely to see some sort of sea lion or otter or perhaps a whale.

A MUST SEE
Feb 2021
If you have not visited Monterey Bay, I am suggesting that you should go and experience this wonderful city. Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, and the Aquarium are all wonderful places to visit. we even saw California's First Movie Theater and it was such a delight. There are hidden areas that you can explore if you do the walk from Fisherman's Wharf to Cannery Row.

Monterey Bay is hands down one of the most scenic areas of Coastal California.
May 2020
One of the most beautiful & scenic places left in California. In spite of Covid and some of the other urban issues, this coastal area and drive along the ocean is one of the best places to visit. You will even get back to the feel of what California used to be...and that was pretty special.

Wonderful place to visit during COVID-19
Dec 2020
Beautiful drive around the cost & plenty of hiking parks. I hiked in Point Lobos Loop Trail Park, Mission Park and Jack Peak Park with the breathtaking view of Carmel and the ocean. Wonderful place to visit during COVID-19 era, no crowds and plenty of things to do.

We rented electric bikes and road the bay from the point around to the north. It was quiet and amazingly beautiful.
Nov 2020
An electrifying morning on bikes with incredible views and friendly locals. We road north stopped for coffee and enjoyed it overlooking the bay. It was very peaceful as no one was in the area so you got to really enjoy the scenary.

Beautiful drive & plenty of recreation, pull offs along the coast to get out and walk or head to the beaches. We enjoyed the area, Pebble Beach, and sailing on Monterey - Bella on the Bay. We used Home Away from Home for doggie daycare. We have used them several times now on different trips. Awesome!
