Three Days: Monterey to Big Sur

I arrived in Monterey late on Thursday, and departed Saturday afternoon. I spent plenty of time wandering and enjoying the beautiful scenery. These are my favorite kinds of trips – the kind where you wander and explore organically, without having any plans or deadlines. It’s incredibly refreshing and fun.

Day One:

  1. Arrive in Monterey, check into the Intercontinental Hotel.
  2. Walk from Cannery Row to Lovers Point along the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail… enjoy watching the seals and pups!
  3. Dinner at The Beach House at Lover’s Point. Definitely recommend – excellent service and good food with a fantastic view.

Day Two:

  1. Drive to Carmel-by-the-Sea
  2. Wander the galleries, and explore the beaches near Carmel-by-the-Sea

Day Three:

  1. Drive to Big Sur (at least up to where Route 1 is closed due to road closure)
  2. Stop everywhere along Route 1 to take in the view! Pro-tip: Pack a lunch and plenty of water so you can focus on the view and enjoying yourself!

Floral by the Sea

I wore this skirt on a day excursion to Carmel by the Sea. I love the bright colors paired with a sweater set – it makes for a perfect outfit to spend strolling through galleries and a quick run into the freezing surf. Tell me, have you been to Carmel by the Sea??
