My perfect day is when I can watch the sun rise over the city from the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa’s upper patio. Everything about it, from the sound of the softly crashing waves and playful seagulls to the dreamy sailboats and adorable sea otters, reminds me of just how lucky I am to call Monterey home.


Gina Archuleta

My perfect day includes hiking through beautiful Big Sur and admiring ocean views from high mountain peaks. After a hike I like to relax at the Big Sur River Inn and enjoy a drink and delicious food on their amazing outdoor patio.
