The northern coast of California is so beautiful (that's an understatement). Every time I see it, I feel like I never want to move away from California...ever. We took a trip with family (who happen to also be some of our very best friends) to Monterey and along the coast. We had the best time spending time together, playing, splashing, going to the aquarium, and just enjoying the stunning locations we visited. I wonder if people who live there ever get bored with the views. It is hard to imagine! Our favorite places there are the Dennis the Menace Park, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, driving along Highway 1 down to Big Sur, and a stop at Carmel-by-the-Sea.
It isn't a hotel stay without jumping on the beds!
