Speed Racing and Horseback Riding in Monterey

Let’s say that you’ve been to visit Monterey several times and you love it here, but you are wondering what there is to do that’s fresh and new?  It’s time to start thinking “outside” the city.  Maybe you have a thing for fast cars.  At the Laguna Seca Speedway, noted driver and race winner Skip Barber maintains a unique school for driving racecars.  You get to experience speed at its rawest in some of the fastest vehicles on the speedway today.  For a more gentle experience but no less unique, the Monterey Bay Equestrian Center offers horseback riding in several locales.  You can even get a carriage ride for that special someone’s birthday or anniversary.  It’s all about thinking out-of-the-box.  There is a cornucopia of things to do on the Monterey Peninsula, but every now and then, we want just a little bit more.  Don’t forget to book a room at our comfortable, centrally located hotel.  Book early and save cash.  Ask our Front Desk Associates about other unique and different things on the Peninsula.

People seem to think whales migrate South in the winter, but the truth is that whales migrate all year long, different types migrating at different times and, don’t forget, that they have to do a trip back up to the North also, which happens in late spring and summer. So, any time is a good time to go whale watching from Monterey. To celebrate whale and its impact on Old Monterey, every third Saturday in January ( this year Jan 21, 2012), is devoted to the Monterey WhaleFest, a celebration of the whale and its migration. As such, it is also a celebration of Old Monterey, with entertainment, food stalls, art and music all coming together to make for one nice afternoon and evening. For me, this is a nice break from the daily drudgery of winter. Definitely a top 10 things to do in Monterey.
