We will be in Monterey with 61 high school music students and the plan was to spend 4 hours at the aquarium. I am now thinking this might be too much time and wonder about 2 1/2 to 3 hours in teh aquarium and then move on to something else. Our schedule for the day is flexible until our dinner reservation at 5:30.. I was wondering about going to the Asilomar State Beach, Dennis the Menace playground (who doesn't love a playground!) or some other beach area. Any suggestions would be appreciated. This needs to be a free activity.
