Hi! I'm Betty Lou from the Hawaii Forums.
I am taking a cruise from San Diego to Vancouver in late April - and the ship has an 8:00 to 5:00 stop in Monterey. They are offering NO excursions (seems odd, yes?) - and I am not sure that I need one anyway.
I've ordered some material on-line ... and think that I will generally romp around. I guess I need to say that I have been to Monterey several times ... but it has been at least 10 years since my last visit, so I am fuzzy.
I recall that I loved the Mission. Any idea of the cost of a cab from wherever the ship docks (actually tenders) to the Mission? Where do cruise ships unload their passengers? How about a good place for lunch? And I vaguely remember a wonderful, wonderful bookstore ... City Books? Fog City Books? Something like that.
I have been to the Aquarium several times over the years ... so I probably won't go there.
I am open to ideas!
Thank you, all!Edited: 12:18 pm, February 11, 2013
