Monterey County: So Much to Discover

Monterey County highlights everything that's best about California. From Monterey's hotels and seaside restaurants to the hillside vineyards and intimate tasting rooms of the Salinas and Carmel Valleys, from Big Sur's redwood groves to Pebble Beach's perfectly groomed golf courses, from Salinas' old-fashioned rodeo to Carmel-by-the-Sea's elite music and art festivals, Monterey has a feast of fun just waiting to be sampled.
