The Monterey Jazz Fest is coming
Monterey will be hosting the Monterey Jazz Fest at the Monterey Fairgrounds from Sept 16-18 don't forget to get your tickets. One of the great things about the Monterey jazz fest is they have something for everyone from well known bands like Huey Lewis and The News to local bands that you haven't heard unless your from around these parts and have been to some of their local shows. There will be 500 artists on 8 stages continuously for 3 nights and 2 days. You should be able to get your jazz fix. You can get your tickets here. So go out to the Jazz fest and have a good time.
Where to stay for the jazz fest
There are many options for hotels for the Jazz fest. If you would like to see the Aquarium and Cannery Row while you are here than I recommend my list of Hotels near the Monterey Bay Aquarium, also since we are getting so close to the date of the jazz fest and this is a very popular event in Monterey you might also check Salinas hotels if you can't find any rooms in Monterey or just to save a little money.
