Family Weekend Getaway in Monterey and Carmel
By car: Monterey is just two hours from downtown San Francisco. For a spectacular drive down the coast and through Santa Cruz, take scenic Highway U.S. 1, and follow the signs to Pacific Grove to reach most downtown hotels. You can also travel inland on Highway 101 to see the abundant agricultural bounty of the region.
By train: Let someone else do the driving and hop aboard Amtrak's Coast Starlight, which runs from San Francisco along the stunning Pacific coastline into Salinas. Keep in mind, however, that the train only leaves from Oakland, with service to Salinas, where you'll have to transfer to a connecting bus charter or take the free Monterey-Salinas Transit bus.
