Carmel Family Trip Guide

viewed 4,556 times and seen via embed 14 times

Here's a family activity guide for the beautiful Monterey Peninsula area including Monterey and Carmel with a few outliers sprinkled in. Great Monterey aquarium, hikes, kayaking/pontoon cruise in Elkhorn Slough or off Pebble Beach golf course, beach play/bouldering, sand dune sledding, and shopping. I highly recommend you stay in Carmel because it is a small, charming, and walkable town with great restaurants, stores, and beaches. Monterey, though perhaps better known name to some, is a commercial town.
If you like Pebble Beach and kayaking, contact Bob Mannix at montereyvistas@gmail.com for a very special kayaking and nature education of Carmel Bay/Pebble Beach area just off the Pebble Beach golf course. $85.00/person for just over two hour trip. He gives you great geology and sea life lessons while you kayak around the bay.

Best coastal weather is September-December and March-May, followed by January-February (rainy season), and then June-August (marine fog like San Francisco). The summer fog burns off just three-four miles inland to warm, dry sun, but most of the activities are right on the coastline.
