Monterey travel tips

Let us help you with the best tips about Monterey

Best time to visit Monterey

The spring months of April – May are a great time to visit Monterey when the average temperatures hover around 65 degrees Fahrenheit. During this time, there are fewer crowds than the peak tourist season of summer and Monterey also hosts a few food, arts, and music-related festivals. Summer temperatures range from 65 – 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Because of large tourist crowds, expect long queues at most of the major attractions. From October onward, temperatures steadily drop and stay around 45 – 50 degrees Fahrenheit through the rest of winter. Some film festivals and golf tournaments also happen during this time of the year. If you don’t mind the cooler temperatures, you’ll enjoy visiting Monterey in winter. Hotel rates may not be cheaper during any of the festival or event dates, but you may find some attractive deals during spring and winter.

Getting around Monterey

A delightfully compact town, Monterey can be easily explored on foot. If you visit between May – September, from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend, there is a free trolley that operates in Downtown Monterey, with stops at popular locations such as Fisherman’s Wharf, Cannery Row and Monterey Bay Aquarium. You can also consider driving in Monterey as the traffic is light and you’ll find plenty of garage parking spaces. If you need to hire a car, it’s definitely worth checking for deals on car rentals with momondo.
