I often forget how lucky we are living in the Bay Area. There are so many places we can stay and visit without driving too far. We spent we lovely weekend in Monterey as family. We rented a condo just across the street from the beach in pacific grove. We were walking distance to an adorable little downtown area with restaurants and a very short drive to the Monterey Bay aquarium. The kids had a great time and was a wonderful opportunity for us to spend time as a family away from home. Loved it!
