Monterey California

Monterey Bay Inn:What You Need To Know About A Monterey Bay Hotel?
California

Visit Monterey Califo,Monterey California rnia

,If you have been working too hard for too long and just need to get away
and play some golf, you will want to check out golf vacation packages.The
luxury golf resorts are like a world of their own with exceptional hotel
accommodations.Say you want to stay at the Sandestin Golf Resort in Florida.
This resort is located on the Northwest Gulf Coast of Florida. The lodging
options span three and a half miles between the Gulf of Mexico and the
Choctawhatchee Bay. For your convenience, Sandestin has 1,800 available room
accommodations which are grouped into five resort areas: Beachfront,
Beachside, Village, Bayside and Dockside. Each of the five neighborhoods then
offers a unique locale.These travel arrangements are often referred to as
"stay and play" plans, because you stay at a certain hotel and receive rights
to play at a designated golf course while you are there. When making these
arrangements, check ahead of time to make sure there are not special
requirements that will make playing inconvenient or impossible for you. The
nice thing about these luxury golf resorts is there is opportunity to enjoy
the luxury at a greatly discounted price.Vacation membership can offer
quality, luxury holidays like the one just described, but at members' (greatly
discounted) prices. You can take holidays to all sorts of locations depending
on your personality and desires. For instance, you can choose to golf on a
course located near or in a major city, taking in museums or theatres when
not golfing. Like The Doral Golf Resort and Spa, A Marriott Resort, one of
premier golf and spa resorts in the United States. Nestled in tropical Miami,
and often referred to as The Kingdom of Golf, Doral features 5 championship
golf courses (is the host to the PGA Tour since 1962) and five restaurants.
The Spa at Doral offers a range of high-end spa luxuries and facilities. The
Blue Lagoon aquatic area includes Camp Doral, with a full program for
children.Another favorite is the Pebble Beach Resort in California, located
in an area of rugged natural beauty. The Monterey Peninsula attracts
year-round visitors from across the country and around the world. Visitors
enjoy such famous area attractions as 17-Mile Drive, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big
Sur, Cannery Row, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Carmel Mission, along with whale
watching and special events.Daytime temperatures on the Monterey Peninsula
range from 50-75 degrees year-round and vary throughout the day. Mornings
can be foggy, and afternoons are frequently balmy. It is best to dress in
layers and to carry a water-resistant wind shirt or jacket. Note that it rarely
rains between April and October (information taken from ). While there, you
might take a day to fish instead of golf. Whatever your needs, you can find
golf packages to meet your needs at Are you going to take your own golf clubs
with you when you travel on golf holidays? You probably would prefer to use
them rather than the clubs that can be rented at the course. If you choose
to take them with you, you will need to think about the arrangements a bit.
For instance, do you have a really high quality golf club bag which will
protect those expensive golf clubs. If not, you'd better get one. You won't
be able to carry your clubs on if you are flying, so you'll need a bag that
can take airport luggage handling and still protect your clubs. So get a good
one.When picking a destination for a golf holiday, pick the course you wish
to play on first, and then find out about lodging at hotels, resorts, or stay
& play package plans at , for a lifetime of discounted travel. Go ahead,
live your dreams!When choosing a stay and play package, make sure the tee
times that are set for you are going to work for you. People who are staying
at a golf course's own resort generally get first serve when choosing tee
times. If it's really important to you to get the tee time you desire, it
may be worth it to you to stay at the resort instead of a less expensive hotel.
Either way, you are sure to find refreshment and restoration when taking golf
holidays.,,Monterey, California, the oldest city in California, was founded
in 1770. It has approximetly 30,000 residents, an average high temperature
0f 65.3 degrees, an average low temperature of 47.8 degrees, receives rain
an average of 67 days a year and is on the Monterey Peninsula which has over
98 miles of coastline.The beautiful city of Monterey is approximetly 115 miles
south of San Francisco and 350 miles north of Los Angeles. It can be reached
by air, car, train, boat and bus. Just getting to Monterey is an experience
in itself. For most of your trip you will have California's gorgeous coastline
on one side and beautiful forests and mountains on the other. In my opinion,
the best way to visit Monterey is by car. Just driving through the Monterey
Peninsula, with all of it's beautiful scenery and old Spanish architecture,
can be an experience of a lifetime.Whether you enjoy, lying on the beach,
swimming in the ocean, surfing, sport or surf fishing, golfing, shopping,
visiting art galleries, antiquing, dining, sightseeing, whale watching,
taking romantic walks along the beach or just relaxing in a luxury hotel,
you can do it in Monterey and you can do it without fighting heavy traffic,
without being crowded and without breaking the bank.Discover Old Fisherman's
Wharf with it's great restaurants, seafood, unique shops, whale watching,
fishing, and bay cruises, theatre, and the sights and sounds of Monterey's
past. Visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium with it's over 200 award-winning

life. Play golf at Pebble Beach Golf Links which was ranked the No. 1 Public
Course in America by Golf Digest in,2005. Take one of the numerous whale

it's onsite 18-hole Del Monte Golf Course and it's heated outdoor swimming
pools or the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa which combines elegant European
architecture, wide-sweeping coastal views and sophisticated style to create
the perfect vantage point by which to enjoy the gentle sounds of surf, the
fresh scent of sea air and the sight of sea otters at play. If all that is
not enough for you, take a drive up the coast and in less than two enjoyable
hours you can be in San Francisco, eating in Chinatown or enjoying the
nightlife.For more information about the city of Monterey, California see:,
a directory of links to the city of Monterey, California guides and
directories listing hotels, restaurants, attorneys, real estate brokers,
information, resources, services, things to do, places to go and
more.,,Planning a vacation to Northern California? Make sure you include San
Francisco in your trip. The first thing to do is to determine if you will
be traveling as a couple or bringing the whole family. This will help determine
which hotel you will be choosing. Next make a list--Things to do San Francisco.
Then divide that list into grown-up attractions and kids attractions.Now the
fun can begin. The California Academy of Science can go on both sides in your
list, things to do San Francisco. It is the only place on the planet with
an aquarium, a planetarium, a natural history museum, and a 4-story rainforest
all under one roof. Located at 55 Music Concourse Drive, Golden Gate Park
in San Francisco, this attraction has over 40,000 live animals and over 20
million specimens.If fine art is a major interest of yours you may consider
the de Young Museum. This museum has had many great reviews. Previous exhibits
have included Birth of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Mus茅e d'Orsay,
To Dye For: A World Saturated in Color, and Van Gogh. This site can also be
added to both sides of your things to do San Francisco.You can take the Golden
Gate Bridge over to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It takes
approximately an hour each way. The Golden Gate Bridge crosses the Golden
Gate Strait connecting the City of San Francisco and the County of Marin to
the north. This Bay area attraction is an incredible engineering feat. This
is a must on your "things to do San Francisco" list.Going to the San Francisco
Zoo will be an awesome experience. The zoo is home to an incredible and
exceptional botanical collection as well as more than 250 species of animals,
many of which are highly threatened in their native habitat. The Fisher Family
Children's Zoo will delight and teach the kids about the natural world.
Opening their doors in 1960, this zoo is a fun addition to the kids' side
of your "things to do San Francisco" list.Something special for the grown
ups would be to visit Napa Valley just north of San Francisco. You will find
many hotels near the heart of California's wine country. One attraction your
sure to love is a hot air balloon tour over the vineyards. After viewing the
vineyards from above, take a tour through a winery. California's wine rivals
those imported from France, Italy, and Spain. Tasting California's award
winning wine is sure to be a pleasing experience. So add it to your "things
to do San Francisco" list.Perhaps you would like to head to the south end
of the bay area. Sunnyvale and San Jose are two of the major cities that make
up what is know as the Silicon Valley. The Children's Discovery Museum is
located in San Jose. Their exhibits are hands on. They believe in giving kids
concrete experiences that give them opportunities to explore and discover,
and interact with their environment. Your kids will remember this experience
as one of the best vacations. An undeniable selection for the kids' side of
your "things to do San Francisco" list.a2bae8682fff12f9e32b5e6cc650fda7,,No
vacation is complete with out a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. With over
550 different species of plants and animals, it is sure to delight all ages
in your family. The Monterey Bay Aquarium receives over 1.8 million visitors
each year, since their opening in October of 1984. You may find that it is
better to take a tour of the exhibits, or that your family enjoys a leisurely
stroll through each exhibit at their own pace. The water is kept at 50 degrees
Fahrenheit. A majority of the water that is used comes directly from the
Monterey Bay, and this helps to feed many of the animals in the exhibits,
as it contains plankton.If your little ones are scared that one of the tanks
may break, reassure them that they are anywhere from 3 to 13 inches in width
and will not break. You may notice that the aquarium exhibits contain only
animals and plants that are located in the Monterey Bay area. Also, you will
not find an exhibit contain whales, dolphins or sea lions. The originators
felt that it was better to view them in their natural surrounds in the Bay
and you may occasionally see some of them from the deck of the aquarium.
Cameras and video are welcome, although the Aquarium asks that you look for
signs that state when to turn off your flash, as it may harm some animals
that are not used to harsh or flashing lights. Your family will enjoy an
afternoon of seeing animals that they ordinarily would not get a glimpse of,
and will cherish the memories of these animals for yeas to come.,,Author:
J.D. ConwayPublisher: Arcadia PublishingISBN: 0The following interview was
conducted by: NORM GOLDMAN: Editor of Today, Norm Goldman, Editor of is
honored to have as our guest, Jim (J.D.) Conway, author of Monterey: Presidio,
Pueblo and Port (The Making of America Series). Jim is in addition to being
an historian and genealogist, the Museum Coordinator for the City of
Monterey.Good day Jim and thank you for agreeing to participate in our
interview.Norm:Jim could you tell us something about your personal and
professional background. What are you duties as the Museum Coordinator for
the City of Monterey?Jim:Thank you Norm for your interest in my book. As the
City of Monterey's Museum Coordinator I am responsible for the city owned
museums along with the cultural arts activities.We have 4 museum
facilities:***Colton Hall: that was started in 1847 and completed in 1849.
It was the site of the Constitutional Convention in 1849, it is where
California became as state***Presidio of Monterey Museum. It is located in
the heart of the Lower Presidio Historic Park, which is 26 acres of some of
the most historic land in all of California. The Museum traces the city's
military heritage through the Spanish, Mexican and American
periods.***Located on Cannery row we have 3 "worker shacks" interpreting
living conditions for the seasonal workers who helped make Monterey the
Sardine Capital of the World.***Across the street from the shacks is the
Pacific Biological Lab This was the home, office and laboratory of Edward
Flanders Ricketts, who Steinbeck immortalized as Doc. The city also has an
extensive art collection, which I oversee.I was born in Hope, Arkansas, grew
up in Southern New Mexico and went to college at New Mexico Highlands
University in Las Vegas, New Mexico where I majored in History and Political
Science.I like to say that after four years of college I then spent 4 more
years in the Marine Corps where I got and education, including a tour in Viet
Nam. After the Marines, I worked as a logistics and warehouse manager for
many years. As matter of fact, it was that business which brought me to
Monterey County where I worked for the Spreckels Sugar Company. That was close
to being in a time warp. We lived in the company town with generations of
employees who had worked for company. It was quiet an experience and when
I went back to graduates school in 1997, my thesis was on Spreckels and it
first fifty years in the Salinas Valley. While working for the Sugar Company,
I became interested in family history, went back to college taking classes
in genealogy and that rekindled my passion for history.After receiving my
MA in History form San Jose State I went to work for the City of Monterey
as a museum attendant and research assistant. Over the next 6 years my duties
expanded to include all the museums and cultural art activities. But at heart,
I am a historian. I am married and we have two grown children, and two grand
kids.Norm:How did you become interested in the history of Monterey and what
compelled you to write Monterey: Presidio, Pueblo and Port?Jim:When I first
came to work for the city my boss asked me to research Monterey's history
between 1849, the end of the constitutional convention, and 1880, the opening
of the Hotel Del Monte. What I found, was that this period had been highly
neglected by historians. And much of what information they did have was based
on a prevailing idea that Monterey had been passed by during the gold rush,
and was a "Mexican village with no ambition" according to one prominent
California historian. The more I researched, the more I realized that an
updated history of Monterey was needed. New evidence, research and new
interpretation were redefining Monterey and that story needed to be
told.Norm:What important historical landmarks should one visit or look for
when visiting Monterey and why are they important?Jim:Monterey has such a
varied past that choosing landmarks becomes personal preference.***If ones
interest is the Native people or the Spanish and Mexican periods then the
historic old town section is the place to be.***The Path of History offers
the visitor a chance to visit all the historic buildings and sits that make
up the historic district.***Located on the path is the San Carlos Cathedral,
one of the oldest European buildings in California, and is still used today.
I think that is a must.***I may be biased, but the Lower Presidio Historic
Park was the site of a Native village 2000 years before the Spanish arrived.
It is also the location where Vizcaíno landed in 1602, and where Father
Serra and Captain de Portolá met to found Monterey on June 3, 1770.
Within the park, is the only site in California where a land and sea battle
was fought, and the site of the first American fort in California and possibly
all of the West Coast. And that just takes one up to 1846 with much more
following the American take over. Did I mention that some of the most stunning
views of the bay are from the park?***If one's interest is tied to the literary
history promoted by Steinbeck, they will not want to miss Cannery Row. I like
to challenge visitors when on Cannery Row and try to differentiate between
the literary stories and the actual events and places that made up the canning
and fishing business. Monterey has museums and art galleries that can keep
the youngest to the oldest person's interest.Norm:When is the best time to
visit Monterey and why?Jim:Another difficult question. If it is good weather
you are looking for I would suggest the fall. However during the summer months
(the problem is cool not hot) more festivals and activities are going on.
But, if you want to miss a lot of the crowds December through April are the
best times.Norm:How does the history of Monterey differ from other
neighboring areas such as Carmel, Pacific Grove, Salinas, etc?Jim:They all
start with Monterey and then branch off to come up with their own identities.
Salinas' history is associated with agriculture, which makes it a little
different than the Peninsula communities that surround Monterey. That is not
to say the only history in Salinas is agriculture but it is the cornerstone
of its existence. Pacific Grove came along earlier than Carmel. It began as
a Methodist Church retreat in the 1870s and has maintained an identity as
a seaside village with a quite demure and hometown atmosphere.
Carmel-By-the-Sea was an artist colony that became prominent with California
artist following the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. It developed a bohemian
flare that has spread down the coast to Big Sur. One of the best things about
Monterey and the surrounding communities is its verity of cultures, and the
unique role that they have developed to make this area more than just a one
dimensional location.Norm:How have historians established and interpreted
Monterey's history and do you believe that their perceptions are
accurate?Jim:I love this question. Without going into a complete
historiography of Monterey, I would say that earlier interpretations were
overly romanticized and were often repeated without being researched. They
where often one dimensional, only looking at one aspect of a subject, ignoring
other elements that helped complete a more diverse picture.One good example
is that period between 1850 and 1880 when most historians say Monterey was
in decline with no civic ambition or economic base. That was just not accurate.
Yes, there were economic swings in Monterey, but every town in California
suffered through the same problems. If you look at what the Chinese were
accomplishing locally during this time, Monterey was better off than a lot
of communities.Too often in Monterey's history we have ignored the
contributions of the different cultures. The study of history has changed
considerably over the last 30 to 40 years today we look more at cultures,
gender and class in our interpretations and that gives us a more complete
history. I suspect in 30 or 40 years another historian may be critiquing my
work based on new sources and techniques that have been developed.Norm:You
mention in your book that culturally Monterey has a connection with its native
heritage, but that connection remains secondary to its Euro-American past.
Why do you believe this and how is it in evidence today?Jim:The Native People
of Monterey, known as Rumsien, did not have a written language, much of what
we know about them is from what the missionaries recorded and a few oral
histories passed down through the generations. To survive, the Native People
intermarried with the Spanish and Californios and they are the ones who wrote
the history often ignoring their own native heritage. We do know that
descendants of those first inhabitants still live in the area and that is
the connection Monterey has to its native heritage.Norm:What is the origin
of the Seventeen Mile Drive and could you briefly describe this tourist
attraction?Jim:In 1880 Charles Crocker opened the Hotel Del Monte. It was
dubbed as "The Most Elegant Seaside Establishment in the World." Presidents,
royalty, business leaders and celebrities came from around the world to enjoy
the hotel and all its amenities. One of its attractions was a drive or
horseback ride through the Del Monte Forest and along the scenic shorelines
of the peninsula. That original 25-mile loop started at the Hotel and ran
out to the hunting lodge on Pebble Beach. Today the hotel is the Naval
Postgraduate School and the lodge is the Lodge at Pebble Beach.Norm:I
understand that in early October Monterey will be having a History Fest. What
is this all about?Jim:The Monterey History and Art Association, California
State Historic Park and City of Monterey, as part of their MOU for the
promotion of Monterey's history sponsors History Fest. It is a means of
promoting the multi layers and varied aspects of Monterey's Past. There are
exhibits and programs that educate and enlighten visitors, and locals alike,
on Monterey's history. Other organizations, such as the military bases,
Historic Garden League and cultural groups join us in this
celebration.Norm:What is the historic significance of Cannery Row?Jim:After
the turn of the century (20-century) Monterey experienced growth in 3 areas.
First was tourism associated with the Hotel Del Monte. Second, was the return
of the Army to the Monterey Military Reservation, know today as the Presidio
of Monterey and thirdly the expansion of the fishing and canning industry.
Following WWI the demand for canned sardines helped create an entire industry
based on getting the fish from the sea to the customers. Not only were there
canneries but the offal was transformed into fertilizer, chicken feed, fish
oil and other sundry needs.Because the smell associated with the rendering
facilities was so strong the canneries were moved away from the city and Hotel
Del Monte along the waterfront on Ocean View Avenue.It was from this
industrial, blue collar, neighborhood that Steinbeck found his inspiration
for Tortilla Flats, Cannery Row, Sweet Thursday and East of Eden. So the
significance today is twofold. One, it was the location for the fourteen
canneries that made up the row. And secondly it has a literary history
associated with John Steinbeck.Norm:You indicate in your conclusion to your
book that Monterey today is at a crossroads on how it will address development,
water restrictions, traffic congestion, and the cost of living. Could you
briefly elaborate?Jim:The issues you stated above are common to all the
communities on the Monterey Peninsula. How those issues are dealt with locally
will be the next important chapter in Monterey's history. For the City of
Monterey each of the issues have the potential to completely change how
Monterey is viewed, or will be viewed in the future. What type of development
will be allowed how we manage our limited water supply how will young families
afford housing, where even the smallest cottage goes for $800,000, how we
answer these questions will be our history.Norm:Is there anything else you
wish to add that we have not covered, and what is next for Jim Conway?Jim:I
think we have covered a tremendous amount of ground. I hope that I have been
able to provide some insight into Monterey's past and create some interest
in it future. It is an exciting place to be a historian and I look forward
to sharing it with those who discover its heritage.Next for Jim Conway is
a book on the California Constitutional Convention that was held in Colton
Hall. It is surprising that more has not been done on that important event,
especially when you put it into context with what was going in throughout
the United States at that time. However, don't expect in the near future as
I have to work it around my full time workload at the city. And that workload
is exciting in its own right.Thanks once again JimTo read Norm's Review of
