PGIF: Celebrating the Holidays in Monterey!

Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays to everyone!!

Below are some wonderful things to be aware of going on in Monterey, as well as at Pacific Grove Inn this month! 

SUN IN DECEMBER

A new beautiful 38 lb Mola Mola (Sunfish) has been added into the Open Sea exhibit!  Did you know that molas are the world’s largest bony fish, reaching 14 feet in length and tipping the scales at 5,000 pounds? Its Latin name, fittingly, means “millstone.”

The molas at MBA are also “target-trained,” which means they learn to associate a red-and-white striped ball with food, and come over as soon as it’s placed in the water. This ensures they aren’t “out-competed” by faster, more aggressive fish.

Check out the Open Sea Webcam to get a sneak peak into this exhibit and potentially catch a glimpse of the latest addition!

 

CHRISTMAS IN THE ADOBES

Last night kicked off the Annual Holiday Christmas in the Adobes Event, from 5PM to 9PM, Dec 8-10th.   Stroll thought the streets of Historic Downtown Monterey and visit up to 23 19th C. adobes for period dance lessons at Custom House, or bagpipes and cookies at Robert Louis Stevenson House. Refreshments, games history and fun await the entire family during Monterey’s signature holiday event.

 

RECONNECT WITH CANNERY ROW

Less than 1 Mile from the Pacific Grove Inn you will find the legendary Cannery Row, tthe most popular vacation destination on California’s Central Coast. This historic waterfront district on Monterey Bay was made famous by John Steinbeck. The best of Monterey hotels, attractions and recreation, authentic Monterey restaurants, convenient shopping and exciting Monterey nightlife are found on Cannery Row, Monterey.

Visitors packing for a Cannery Row vacation might want to leave some empty space in their suitcase. With more than 85 Monterey shops, including independent, family-owned stores and top-selling national name brands, the original treasures on sale here are as exciting as the district’s ocean views. Toy stores and chocolate shops make spoiling kids simple, while boutiques feature unique art and antiques, gourmet foods, local wines, stunning jewelry and casual fashion for women and men.

Between the oceanfront Coastal Recreation Trail, wine tasting rooms and world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row Monterey bustles with enough activity to keep families, couples and friends on the go for days.  You can walk to boutique and outlet shopping, live music and dynamic nightlife, beaches and dive shops, and year-round events for all ages.  Here, guests can just as easily indulge their adventurous spirit as they can relax and reconnect.  So go ahead–build a sand castle, schedule a spa treatment, watch sea otters or try that glass of award-winning pinot noir.  It’s a perfect day to make memories on Cannery Row for every budget.
