Places to Visit in Monterey

It can be quite pleasant to just amble around the streets when you're in a new place, but sometimes it's wise to have an agenda. Grab your schedule — we have plenty of awesome ideas for your Monterey vacation.

Monterey Bay Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf are part of the lifeblood of this place. Much loved by both tourists and locals, these renowned attractions should be non-negotiable fixtures of your schedule.

You're going to be surrounded by fabulous sights, like Carmel Beach and Dennis the Menace Park. If you want to get the most out of your city stay, also take a look around the Maritime Museum and Point Pinos Lighthouse.

Whether you like to think of yourself as an intellectual or you simply want to discover a little bit about the region's long history of learning, Naval Postgraduate School is guaranteed to educate and enlighten. Adventurers in this destination have a great range of options. Slip on your khakis and dig out your lucky driver. If you'd like to get outdoors for a day on the fairways, secure a tee time at Del Monte Golf Course. Still got some time on your hands? What is it that makes gorging on snack food just before clambering aboard a whirling carnival ride seem like a good idea? Try not to lose your lunch at Monterey County Fairgrounds!
