A beautiful and peaceful area to visit or relocate is Monterey, California. Located on the coast, with a year round comfortable climate, and not far from the Big Sur area of California, the area offers outdoor fun, art and culture, and stunning scenery. Since it is one of the most historic cities in the state, older homes and adobes are found in Monterey. Some adobes are open to the public and tours are given.
With golf courses, shopping and scenic drives to Big Sur, there is always something to do. For water lovers, there is scuba diving, surfing, kayaking and for tamer excitement, whale watching. A relaxing drive down the coast can entertain the family, with verdant nature and roadside stops along the way. In town, the Monterey Bay Aquarium will delight your family. Just outside is Cannery Row, where John Steinbeck wrote the book, Cannery Row. Fun shops and great restaurants now line the Row, and a stroll is the call. A short drive north is Carmel, a romantic getaway with spas, art galleries and lots of charm.
Finding peace is easy, here- just take a kayak out on the bay, relax and restore in the beauty of Monterey.
