Monterey Vacations

You’ve seen the tour professionals and celebrities tempt fate with the mighty Pacific as they tee-off on the iconic seaside 10th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links. While the participants in the annual pro/am tournament can make it look easy, your stomach will undoubtedly be churning like the surf against the cliffs below as you begin your backswing. With steady resolve and a calming breath, you cleanly strike the ball; it rises into the California sky, then gently comes to rest in the middle of the fairway. You got lucky…this time. Ride that wave of good fortune throughout the remainder of your stay in Monterey. Often referred to as California's "First City," a vacation in Monterey, CA, offers an enchanting mix of historical appeal and modern energy. Travelocity makes it easy for you to experience the northern California peninsula by taking all the hassle out of the booking process when you bundle your travel and accommodations together with one of our Monterey package deals. Whether you prefer to browse historical exhibits, try your luck on the golf course, or lounge on the beach, there are plenty of enjoyable activities that will keep a smile on your face during your memorable Monterey vacation.

Monterey Hotels

No matter if you are taking the family on a northern California adventure, are planning a romantic beach vacation near Monterey, or will be embarking on an epic golf getaway, finding the right hotel can make all the difference. Here are some of our favorite hotels on the Monterey Peninsula:

  • Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa – Become one with the Pacific at this magnificent spa hotel carved into the cliffs near Cannery Row. Start your day off with a refreshing treatment at Vista Blue Spa, wander through the seaside village, then cap-off your adventure with a meal prepared by Executive Chef James Waller. Be sure to visit the specialty retail shops on the premises in search of that perfect remembrance of your trip.
  • Sanctuary Beach Resort – Sanctuary is a highly appropriate label for this pristine property set on 19 oceanfront acres by Marina State Beach, north of downtown Monterey. The 60 cottage guestrooms and suites deliver unequalled privacy and serenity. Follow the footpath from your front door to the Marina Dunes Preserve for an added dose of tranquility.
  • Lovers Point Inn – As the name implies, Lovers Point is an ideal option for a romantic getaway to the Monterey Peninsula. The hotel is named for the natural jetty that juts out into the bay, next to which the property sits, making it an excellent vantage point for the evening’s sunset. Lovers Point isn’t just for, well…lovers. Their Mermaid Beach House vacation rental is large enough to accommodate the whole family.
  • Embassy Suites Monterey Bay – Enjoy stunning views of the entire Monterey Bay area from the balcony in your suite in one of the area’s few high-rise hotels. Begin your adventure on the peninsula with a complementary made-to-order breakfast, then put the cherry on the sundae with a drink at the free evening reception in the atrium. Business travelers will appreciate the 16,000 square feet of event space, and vacationers can take advantage of the hotel’s prime location, close to all area attractions.

Major Attractions

With gorgeous scenery and even better weather, Monterey is the perfect destination for the outdoors enthusiast. After enjoying a great night's sleep at one of several peaceful hotels in Monterey, begin your day with a brisk walk on the Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail. There, you'll be greeted by glimpses of seals, otters, whales, and other local sea life. The trail also offers easy access to several award-winning restaurants for a lunchtime pit stop. If you're not in the mood for walking, you can also access these with an auto rented from one of the many Monterey car rentals available. After a laid-back lunch, hit up the renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, which offers magnificent views of the coast off the deck of one of the best aquariums in the world. Combine your time outdoors with a history lesson and stop by the fascinating Monterey State Historic Park. You'll come away equipped with a new understanding of California's beginnings.

Festivals and Events

Celebrate Monterey's heritage as California's capital at the annual First City Festival, which takes place near the end of August. In addition to several live performances from the region's hottest artists, the event features a Vaudeville variety stage, where you'll have a side-splitting good time. Use that money you've saved on Monterey vacation packages to score valuable records at the festival's exclusive Beat Swap Meet.

For a unique and affordable California getaway full of fresh air and delicious food, plan a relaxing trip to Monterey. By booking your flight and hotel at the same time on Travelocity, you’ll save enough to buy a couple of rounds for your foursome at the clubhouse after your round at Pebble Beach.
