Can anyone help, please?
We’re coming to San Francisco for a two week family holiday this summer and have a free weekend at the end – 18-20th August. I’d like to see some of the coast around Monterey and the aquarium, but many of the hotels in Monterey are unavailable for 1-2 nights, although there is availability in Marina.
• Is there a particular event that weekend, or is the area just really busy at that time of year?
• If visit Point Lobos or other state reserves/beaches can we get away from the crowds?
• Our flight home on the Monday night leaves SFO at 18.30 and I’m wondering if there would be any pressures (traffic hold ups etc) if we plan to drive back from Monterey on the Monday morning. (Like to get the the airport in good time and return hire car without hassle etc!)
