Monterey Bay, California

17-Mile Drive

Cannery Row

Monterey Bay

The Lone Cypress

Pacific Grove Golf Links Lighthouse

Fisherman's Wharf

This past week I was lucky enough to take a trip to California with the golf team at my college to Monterey Bay (or as I like to call it Monterey Bae). Yes, we were there for a tournament, but we ended up doing more sightseeing than I had anticipated. Guys. The Monterey Peninsula is AMAZING. So much prettier than I had ever expected. At first I was kind of disappointed because we weren't going anywhere near the typical California hubs such as LA, San Francisco, or Hollywood. Thank goodness we didn't. The city of Pacific Grove itself possesses evidence of its rich Mexican and Spanish heritage with preserved buildings and architecture. The entire Monterey Peninsula consists of jagged coastlines and world-class golf greens.  My two favorite things. How convenient. The central coast is such a hidden treasure. There were so many things to do and probably had some of the prettiest views in the whole state within a 30 minute radius. Also, I would like to note that I had "California Gurls" stuck in my head 4 days straight.

 I would highly suggest... 

Cruising down the famous 17-mile drive 
Eating dinner on the Fisherman's Wharf  
Seeing The Lone Cypress 
Sunset, drinks, fire pits, and bagpipes at Spanish Bay 
Walking down Cannery Row 
Touring the Monterey Aquarium (one of the best in the country)
Golfing at Pebble Beach (pics to come) & Pacific Grove 

Stay Classy. -T
