Permission to Roam

Plan Your Trip to Monterey County

It's time to take a trip to a magical place where social distancing comes naturally, outdoor adventure abounds and the scenic views are endless. Explore the iconic shops and award-winning restaurants on Cannery Row, awarded the World Travel & Tourism Commission "Safe Travels" award for exceeding health and hygiene protocols. Tee-off at legendary golf courses in Pebble Beach with epic coastal views. 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 you're here, Monterey will reinvigorate your soul.
