# 9 - Monterey (city) Aug 09, 2011
Saturated with history, beaches and a relaxed environment, Monterey continues to be one of the forgotten little places to see along on any California trip. The main appeal is the wonderful aquarium situated right along the coast. Tickets are not the cheapest at $30 per adult but you can seem to get lost in there for a day. *Pack a lunch so you don't have to splurge more on the food inside. Also be sure to check their website,, for any special events they have going on that day/night. Be sure to hit the beach for a little bit, if there is a nice day out or if you just want to relax. Not much going on during the nights but you will be long asleep if you have already hit the beach and aquarium. *Interesting fact, the aquarium was used in one of the old star trek movies, Wrath of Khan.
