2 Day trip to Monterey in April

by Rod5

I'm planning on visiting Monterey for a few days in April. I have my days planned with some golf and coastal drives. Can anyone recommend the best bars/nightclubs for evening drinks. I'll be solo so would like a place to meet people etc. thanks.

Are you staying in Monterey? Also, what kind of place do you like... pub, live music, karaoke, classy, dance club, dive bar, etc? Monterey has it all.

Many of the most popular places in town are right along Alvarado Street downtown. Our favorite place for live music and people watching is the Mucky Duck. Another very popular place that often has live music or karaoke is the Brit, right across the street. Down a block you'll find a nice traditional British Pub in the Crown and Anchor. This are also has two dance clubs: Club Octane and Doc Rickett's Lab. There are also a few more upscale places like Lalapalooza's bar just for hanging out and Cibo's Lounge for live jazz. Monterey Live has live music most every night. Pool at Easy Street Billiards is one block away, and our favorite local dive is Alfredos. Yes, all of this within a block of Alvarado, and all relatively popular depending on the night of the week.

The area along Cannery Row and Lighthouse Ave also has a few decent places like Carbones, Pelican Tavern, Bulldog Pub.

Let me know if you have any questions, or take a look at my Monterey pages where I provide a lot more details on most of the these places plus a few other decent bars.


Travel Tips for Monterey

Town of Salinas, California

by meteorologist1

Visit the town of Salinas, which is just east of Monterey via California Highway 68. This town is the birthplace of famous Nobel Prize winning author John Steinbeck. Here you can visit the National Steinbeck Center, which offers a look at the life and works of John Steinbeck. If you are into his books, this place should not be missed if you are coming to the Monterey area.

Cute and Playful Sea Otters

by cnango

The cute and playful Sea Otters are an endangered species but if your lucky you might see one at Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The Southern Sea Otter is the icon for the Monterey Aquarium and much of Central Coastal California where they live. The otter lives their life in thirds, they eat, sleep and fluff their thick dense fur. My favorite thing is the way they balance a rock on their chest and hold a clam in their paws then bang it against the rock to crack it open.

Presidio of Monterey

by Ewingjr98

There are two distinct areas of Monterey that have held the name, "the Presidio of Monterey". The Presidio of Monterey was founded by Spanish Missionaries in 1770, and it consisted of a walled town in what is now Historic Old Monterey. The only surviving building from the original Presidio is the Royal Presidio Chapel, America's oldest continually used cathedral.

The US Army's modern-day compound called the Presidio of Monterey is on the hillside next to the site of the original Spanish Presidio. The only major Spanish site on the modern Presidio was a fortified defensive position overlooking the harbor called the castillon. When General Edward Otho Cresap Ord was a lieutenant in 1847, he arrived in Monterey (with then-Lieutenant William Tecumseh Sherman) and built Fort Mervine which became the Presidio of Monterey.

The modern Presidio houses the Defense Language Institute, the largest language training school on the globe helping to make Monterey the "language capital of the world."

Moon over my hammy

by Ewingjr98

I've never seen anything quite like the beautiful full moon rising over Monterey Bay. With the shape of the Monterey Bay, you can can probably watch the moon rise over the water from various locations throughout the year.

Four elements of watching the moon rise:

1. When is the full moon? ( Three or four days on either side of the full moon will give nearly the same effect.

3. What time will the moon rise? ( -- Note the moon rise time changes by 30 minutes to one hour each day.

2. From what direction will the moon rise? This is the tough one, luckily I included a good link below.

4. How about the weather? So you know when the full moon will occur, the direction the moon rises from, and what time the moon will rise. You'd better check the weather before you head out. A cloudy sky will ruin your plans.

Putting it all together...this site will make things easier on you... as it shows moonrise time, direction, and phase of the moon on a single chart. Select the nearest city (I use San Jose while here in Monterey) and show all columns.

Pebble Beach & Del Monte Forest

by Ewingjr98

The community of Pebble Beach is actually an unincorporated area run by a corporation rather than by an elected government but it falls under a census designated place called Del Monte Forest. Del Monte Forest has an average house value of about $800,000, while the residents are 90% white, with average incomes of about $100,000 per year. You will see small metal shields attached to residents' cars to allow them entry to 17 Mile Drive without paying the $9 fee. The Pebble Beach community contains seven golf courses. Spyglass, Pebble Beach, and Spanish Bay are owned by the Pebble Beach Company. Cypress Point, as well as the Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Dunes Course and Shore Course are private, while Poppy Hills is the only public course in Pebble Beach.

Pebble Beach is a private, gated community along the Pacific Ocean known for its golf , expensive houses, and 17 Mile Drive along the beautiful shoreline. Pebble Beach traces its history back to 1919 when Samuel FB Morse established the Pebble Beach Golf Links years after the Del Monte Hotel opened in 1880 (now the Naval Postgraduate School). In the 1970s 20th Century Fox took ownership of Pebble Beach before selling to a Japanese businessman in 1990. In 1999 Clint Eastwood, Arnold Palmer, and Peter Ueberroth led a group of investors who purchased Pebble Beach, intending to further develop the area.

Famous people who are said to maintain houses in Pebble Beach include Paris Hilton, George Lopez, and Tiger Woods.
