Events in Monterey CA – December 2016

The holiday season is here and if you’re in search of activities that your entire family can enjoy in the Bay Area, then you better check out the events in Monterey CA. There are so many things lined up for the remaining part of the year.

Many of them are completely free — especially if you’re from Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito Counties.

For starters, one of the most important Events in Monterey CA:

The Monterey Bay Aquarium, has dedicated the period from December 3 to 11 as an opportunity for locals to enjoy the aquarium for free.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Open House is a treat definitely worth checking out, especially if you have little kids that you want to entertain with science.

This free-admission event just requires visitors to present a photo ID and proof of residence at the main entrance. Current student identification from colleges and universities in Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties, as well as current utility bills showing an address, are also valid proofs of residence.

“Now, if you’re all about celebrating Christmas, local hotels have their own events lined up for guests who wish to get a full blast of the Christmas spirit.”

They have everything all prepared: entertainment, Christmas displays, and holiday fare. If you have a few days off, checking in at these accommodations will surely be a fun treat for the whole family.

Another Christmas-themed event is Christmas at the Adobes, which is scheduled for the 9th and 10th of December. You and your family can leisurely stroll through the streets of Historic Downtown Monterey and then pay a visit to 19th C. Adobes for fandango dance lessons at Custom House.

After that, you can enjoy bagpipe music and cookies at the Robert Louis Stevenson House. There’ll be a bunch of games and different kinds of fun activities for the entire family here.

Other local business establishments have their own “thing” for Christmas and the coming New Year, and they’re all worth checking out as well.

If you’ll be spending a weekend in Monterey, you can find out more about all these and decide which of them you can enjoy with your family for absolutely free.

And of course, nobody’s going to stop you from enjoying the year-round must-visit places in Monterey (Fisherman’s Wharf, Carmel by the Sea, and others).

So book your accommodations immediately and take advantage of all the wholesome events and festivities that Monterey has in store for locals and visitors alike.
