Marvelous Monterey

Monterey is a city in the state of California in the United States of America. It is located within a bay and surrounded by pine forested hills. The uninterrupted views from the bay are simply picturesque.


It is en route on Pacific Highway 1. We did a road trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco in July 2012. We stayed over at the Marriott Hotel. I always try to stay at a Marriott Hotel or within their group, as I get reward points.


A must visit is Fisherman’s Wharf, a popular marina destination with loads of shops and restaurants. Some of the top things to do at the Wharf are whale watching, fishing, sailing and observing sea lions.





There is also an Aquarium,  which is lovely for the kids.



A bizarre “thing” you can buy are crabs in colourful painted shells. Quite different as I had never seen that before!
