Nature


Monterey County is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Dramatic coastline, towering forests, tranquil meadows and an abundance of wildlife make it a premier destination for nature lovers. Some come for the scenic views; some for the boating, hiking, bird or whale watching; others come to get away from it all. Whatever the reason, Monterey is a treasure that you just have to experience firsthand.
