Monterey Bay, California

 

Sandwiched by California’s geographically-diverse Bay Area and jagged Central Coast, Monterey Bay is full of kid-friendly tourist spots and travel attractions that also serve as a magnet for history enthusiasts.

So read on to learn more on how to spend your day on Monterey Bay.

* Nature-Tripping

Beginning a road trip from the Pacific Grove, you could witness the picturesque route of Monterey Peninsula’s 17-Mile Drive as you drive along the Pacific Ocean coast and end in the wonderful seaside community of Pebble Beach. In here, you could either play golf or take a photo in front of the Lone Cypress, an iconic area of a single tree dangerously roosting at the edge of the road.

You could also sail to the rocky islands off Monterey Bay, and visit the Bird Rock, where you could watch a wide array of wildlife like sea lions and pelicans. Meanwhile, you could stop by the Asilomar State Beach, which is found on the coasts of the Pacific Grove, and walk along the walking trail of the beach. During your stroll, you could witness many coves, coastal bluffs, sand dunes, tide pools, a native plant greenhouse and the Del Monte Forest.

* Educational Tours

Moreover, you could let your kids learn more and at the same time have fun at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which is found on Cannery Row. See your kids enjoy their time as they lay their eyes on three stories of tanks that contain a wide variety of marine wildlife, such as leopard sharks, jellyfish and turtles.

Lastly, you and your family could come around Salinas, where you’ll find the National Steinbeck Center. In here, you’ll spot the works of famous authors, Salinas and John Steinbeck, including pertinent historical and cultural pieces of information.

Overall, you could definitely enjoy a trip to Monterey Bay with these top two activities!
