Monterey Peninsula visitors should consider staying in Seaside
California or Marina California, two small towns just north of the city
of Monterey. Seaside and Marina are right on the coast with great beach
access, uncrowded dunes and wide open spaces to explore. A short drive
on Highway 1 takes you to Monterey and all the attractions offered
there. Seaside has a golf course among its attractions and Marina has a
full service resort.
