Plan Your Future Trip to Monterey County

They can restrict travel but they can't stop the wanderlust. Take advantage of this time to plan your next awe-inspiring escape and put America's top road trip at the top of your list. 

Imagine winding along the breathtaking Big Sur coastline on Highway 1 with endless views of the Pacific... stop off to hike the redwoods, follow the river to where it meets the sea. Explore iconic shops and restaurants of Cannery Row, awarded the World Travel & Tourism Commission "Safe Travels" award for meeting and exceeding health and hygiene protocols. Tee-off at legendary golf courses and master the 19th hole in Pebble Beach. Grab a gourmet picnic and watch the sunset on the white sands of Carmel Beach. Sip handcrafted wines at tucked-away tasting rooms where the winemaker might just be the person pouring. Whatever you do while here, one thing is for sure: Monterey will reinvigorate your soul.
