Monterey County is a good place to hit the beach.
Monterey County may be best known for its scenic coast, famous aquarium and star-studded links, but 'wine destination' is fighting for a well-deserved spot in the ranks.
We’re all guilty of it. At some point we’ve complained about the cost of living in San Francisco. How we pay way too much in rent or pay through the nose to park a car. Turns out we’re not the only ones who can complain about the cost of land.
Things associated with beaches and waves seem to naturally make people happy. Think about it. Mavericks had folks that never get in the ocean (let alone get on surf boards) brimming with excitement. Most lighthouses attract more people by car than by boat. Then there are piers. They attract all types: Walkers, runners, fisherman, thrill seekers, foodies… you get the idea.
Filled to the brim with succulents and accents of grey, cream and yellow, Kristin and Rob's Monterey wedding was a gorgeous and fun-filled day. Allumer Events executed the bride's decor details at the Old Whaling Station and provided the florals as well.. Grapes of Wrath served amazing food and cocktails to the guests, while everyone enjoyed music by Henry Chen of Sound in Motion DJs.
With its close proximity to the city, there's no reason not to get out of dodge and jet down to Monterey for a brisk weekend on the coast. If you're a nature lover like I am—I can't get enough of those adorable sea otters and harbor seals bobbing in and out of the water—make haste. Gray whales and their newborn calves are are making their northern migration to back to their Alaskan feeding grounds and will be far out of town in a few months. Here, a simple weekend package you can write home about.
