Holidays to Carmel, Monterey and Big Sur

Enjoy a quieter, more leisurely multi-centre holiday on California’s coast. Spend a few nights in the sleepy seaside towns of Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea, walking along the sandy beaches, taking in the sunsets and visiting top attractions like the Monterey Bay Aquarium or travelling further along the coast to ride the 1920s wooden Giant Dipper Roller Coaster in Santa Cruz. Want scenic views along a rugged coastline? Be sure to drive over the much-photographed Bixby Bridge to reach the wildness of the Big Sur. Speak to our USA Travel Specialists about putting together a multi-centre holiday taking in these must-visit destinations – and much more!
