Visit Monterey In The Fall
Fall is one of the best times to visit Monterey. The reason for that is it's almost like our summer time. The temperatures raise a little and the fog comes in a little later. Not to mention you get to see the color in the trees. Nothing like the beautiful displays you will see on the east coast but hey they will do.
The Best Thing About Monterey In The Fall
The best thing about visiting Monterey in the fall is that the crowds are gone. You heard that right the crowds are gone. So if you are one of those people that don't like huge crowds and all the traffic and stuff that surrounds crowds you should visit Monterey in Fall. Fall is that time between the big tourist seasons in Monterey of Summer and Christmas times so everything kind of dies down a little bit. Some benefits of that are that you will get a cheaper hotel rate even at the Hotels near the MontereyMonterey Bay Aquarium. You will get to see the Sea Otters up close at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and you won't have to wait for a table by the window at your favorite restaurant in Monterey. All of this is especially true if you come during the week since the kids are in school everyone stays out of Monterey. However if you happen to come on a beautiful fall weekend with high temperatures then you can expect a lot of people on weekend trips from the bay area and beyond. But, during the week it will quiet back down and you will only be dealing with the locals again. So if you can get away for a few days during the week this fall plan a trip to Monterey and avoid the crowds.
