Monterey is one of the more picturesque and diverse areas of California, which makes it an attractive travel destination year-round. Spring offers some of the best weather, traditions, and times to take in all of the best elements of the city and county at large. 

Here are ten things to do in Monterey this spring: 

1. CHECK OUT THE WILDFLOWERS

March through May, Monterey’s famous, vibrant wildflowers are at peak bloom. Check them out at: The Pacific Grove Coastline, Fort Ord National Monument, Garrapata State Park, and more outdoor destinations in the area. 

2. HIT THE LINKS

Spring’s sunny days and temperate weather make it an ideal season to golf in Monterey. Get started at: Pebble Beach Golf Links, Pacific Grove Golf Links, or Spyglass Hill Golf Course

3. TRY MONTEREY’S BEST OUTDOOR DINING

You can find delicious dishes and charming al fresco seating at: Abalonetti Bar & Grill on Fisherman's Wharf to Schooners Monterey, Fieldwork, and of course our onsite restaurant Salt Wood Kitchen & Oysterette

4. HEAD OUT ON A BOAT

Warmer days make enjoying the water even easier. From local charters to glass-bottom boat excursions and sailing outings, Monterey offers a ton of great options for going out on a boat

5. EXPLORE MONTEREY COUNTY

Tanning and swimming go well with spring, especially on the uninterrupted stretch of beach in front of The Sanctuary Beach Resort, and at favorite local spots like Macabee Beach and San Carlos Beach
