One day in Monterey Bay area--what to see?
Hi and thanks in advance to anyone who responds!
We are planning a California trip next summer, June 2013. Most of our time we'll be at Yosemite, but we'll have at least a half day, maybe a full day, in Monterey.
So, the questions:
(1) Is the Monterey area worth a full day?
(2) If yes, what should we see?
I know we want to hit the aquarium. Dh has expressed interest in the 17-mile drive. I would love to see McWay Falls. I also loved Carmel by the Sea years ago on a different visit.
Anyway... assuming the aquarium is a must-see.... what else can we do to fill a whole day? Is it possible to do the aquarium, 17-mile drive, check out Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, and window shop in Carmel--all in one day--and make it back to Monterey to sleep that night? Are there other things you think we should see, besides the ones I've mentioned?
I am into photography and would love to get some pictures of those central California cliffs falling into the ocean. And any other great photo opps available.
How would you fill a day in the Monterey Bay area?
We are me and dh (in our mid-thirties) and dd (age nine at time of trip).
