Where to Stay on the Monterey Peninsula

The history of the Monterey Peninsula is similar to the South Bay. Originally it was home to several tribes of Native Americans, followed by Spanish explorers and ranchos, then American homesteaders in the 1850s — there is still a strong Mexican heritage throughout. This region offers beautiful scenery along the Pacific Coast Highway and a number of fascinating points of interest. For this area we are covering the coastal towns from Monterey south to Big Sur.
