Back to our US trip. After a few days discovering San Francisco, it was time for me to pack a few things and leave the city. Our first stop was Monterey, a small coastal city located 2h drive from San Francisco. The city is quite touristic as it has great seafood restaurants and bars. But I think that the most popular attraction is The Monterey Bay Aquarium, one of the biggest and most famous aquariums in the US. And that’s exactly what we picked for starting our tour in Monterey.
We left San Francisco quite early to arrive in Monterey at 10am. We started by visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Tickets can be purchased here and cost 49.95$ per adult, which can be seen as quite expensive. You can have better deals though by booking packages with hotel partners if you intend to stay in the city for more than a day.
