Things to Do in Monterey California
Monterey Bay Aquarium
If you are traveling to Monterey, it would be a real shame not to go and see the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The aquarium first opened in October of 1984 and is now visited by over 1.8 million people every year. There are over 550 (http://www.prlog.org/11996524-lifelock-promo-code-20-off-coupon.html) different species of plants and animals on display there and you could easily spend an entire day taking in everything there is to see. If you have enough time (http://www.prlog.org/11996370-green-smoke-coupon-code-latest-working-coupons.html), you may even want to spend two days visiting this wonderful place. They have an incredible jellyfish display, countless fish and aquatic mammals, and you can even pet a stingray.
Originally named Ocean View Avenue, the city of Monterey officially Renamed the street Cannery Row in January of 1958, in honor of John Steinbeck. The Monterey Bay Aquarium (http://www.prlog.org/11998277-tigerdirect-coupon-code-20-off.html) is on Cannery Row as are a number of hotels, shops, art galleries, winetasting rooms, and fine dining restaurants. There are also a lot of outdoor activities to do in the area including mountain biking, kayaking, scuba diving and much more. You can get outside and enjoy the natural beauty of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
San Francisco California is not the only place that has a fisherman's wharf. The fisherman's wharf in Monterey should definitely be at the top of your list of places to visit if you are traveling to Monterey. There are several restaurants (http://www.prlog.org/11996518-bh-cosmetics-coupon-codes-save-30.html) in this area where you can get some of the best seafood you've ever had. There are also photo opportunities to take pictures of sea lions and if you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a sea otter. There are also glass bottom boat tours available as well as deep-sea fishing trips or whale watching tours.
For the wine lovers out there, Ventana Vineyards has a tasting room where visitors can taste wine from an award-winning winery. There are several wines that are unique to Ventana Vineyards. One of which is called Due Amici (http://www.prlog.org/11996509-checks-unlimited-offer-code-50-off-coupon.html), which is a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Another unique option would be Rubystone which is a blend of Syrah and Grenache. Of course they also have classic red wines, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and several others.
When planning your trip to Monterey it is always best to plan in advance. There is a lot to see and do and with advanced planning you can make the most of your time. Planning ahead also allows you to save money because by booking hotel rooms, tours, and various excursions early, you can often lock in a better price. Last time I traveled to Monterey (http://www.prlog.org/11996528-sittercity-promo-code-25-off-coupon.html) I was able to use a hotels.com discount code to get a great price on my hotel room which was in walking distance to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and a number of great restaurants.
