Our first was spending 2 nights in Monterey Bay.
We checked out part of the bay and the seals that inhabited the pier. That evening we went to a fancy seafood restaurant which was also on the water.
The next day we drove to San Simeon. The road was as nice as the great ocean road. The drive would have taken 2 hours but we made the most of it and stopped about 20 times to do and see things along the way and therefore it took us the whole day to get to San Simeon.
Along the way we visited Pebble Beach which is home to of some of the worlds best golf courses and competitions and features stunning views and amazing houses.
We also did a few short walks one in a state park where we there were Giant Red Wood trees, other walks were along the coast where we saw sea otters, waterfalls, seals, massive elephant seals and we even spotted some whales!
We stayed at San Simeon for one night and the next day headed to Hollywood...
