Monterey

The City of Monterey in Monterey County is located on the southern edge of Monterey Bay, on Central California's Pacific coast in California. Go for a jaunt from Monterey to Big Sur to see Bixby Bridge about 30 minutes away. There's much more to do: immerse yourself in nature at Point Lobos State Reserve, kick back and relax at Carmel City Beach/Carmel River Beach, take a memorable drive along Seventeen Mile Drive, and get to know the fascinating history of Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Monterey vacation builder.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are San Francisco International Airport, Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport and Metropolitan Oakland International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in November, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
