I grew up in Southern California.
While many families across the country planned all year for a single trip to my state the beautiful coastline, scenic attractions, and rich entertainment remained in my backyard. 'Weekend Getaways' were the thing to do. And why not when the beautiful Monterey County coastline extends 99 miles to encompass Big Sur, the famous Pebble Beach, and Moss Landing. But Monterey has been a favorite family destination for generations not just for the breath taking scenery and wildlife- As an adult I now enjoy an even greater appreciation for it's rich cultural history and bucket list events.
What Daughter Says: I enjoy theme parks and plane trips as much as the next person- but I also enjoy a vacation where I can truly unwind, recharge, and soak in a little bit of life's finer things.
