Monterey, Carmel, Pebble Beach

If you’re looking for a taste of everything that Northern California has to offer, then there may be no better destination than Monterey County. From historic Cannery Row, the breathtaking vistas at Pebble Beach, to the charming streets of Carmel, sites and activities abound. Whether you’re visiting for the day or for the weekend, we can help you plan the perfect outing.

What to do once you’re there: Admire one of the most scenic coastlines anywhere, golf like a pro, visit a spa, window shop, lunch or dinner, watch coastal and ocean wildlife, explore historic California missions, picnic on the beach, and enjoy jazz, wine and cars (both fast and antique!)


Adults and children both are mesmerized by the spectacular displays at the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, where you’ll visit as a VIP. We’ll provide a quick lunch at the Aquarium café, or if you’d like to stroll down historic Cannery Row (where you’re in Steinbeck country), you can make your own arrangements for lunch.

Eat, Shop, Play. If you’re looking for the perfect get-away spot where everything is within walking distance, then Carmel is the place for you. Spend a day (or two . . . or three) strolling the charming streets and checking out every shop and gallery as you go. Choose your lunch or dinner spot from a great range of restaurants, or we’ll pack a picnic for you to enjoy on the beach. Explore the historic Carmel Mission. Visit a spa, get a massage, put your toes in the water — Carmel is the perfect place to indulge every get-away desire.

Pebble Beach

“Breathtaking” seems almost too tame to describe the famous Pebble Beach. Take a leisurely drive and explore the sites and stops along 17-mile Drive — a feast for the eyes and the senses. Or we’ll make arrangements for you and your party to golf on one of the five championship courses along the coast, followed by lunch at the resort. Stay the weekend? The resort is home to three different hotels featuring hospitality and activities to accommodate every style and taste.
