Plan a Trip to the Historic Laguna Seca Raceway

It’s April and that means Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey is going to be very busy thanks to its annual bicycling sports event, the Sea Otter Classic.

In spring, this is one of the most-awaited events in Monterey, and this year it is scheduled to take place from April 20th to the 23rd.

Aside from different forms of bicycle racing, highlights of the four-day event include expo sales and displays, camping adventures, a kid’s carnival, enduro, road racing, MTB racing, grand fondos and tours, and so much more.

1. What you want to do

There are many things to do in Monterey. List down everything you want to do and then make a plan of your day-to-day activities.

For example, check out activities you and your family can enjoy at the Sea Otter Classic. According to the calendar of events for 2017, there will also be free events for kids such as sea otter egg hunting, bike racing for kids ages 9 and below, skills or rider zone, and complimentary bike valet.

2. Where you want to go

Aside from Laguna Seca, there are other must-visit places in Monterey and these include the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pebble beach, and Carmel-by-the-Sea.

3. Where you should stay

To make your trip even more fun, make your stay comfortable. Monterey boasts of a long list of clean, safe, and comfortable places to spend the night. If you’re staying for a longer period with your family, choose a hotel that can accommodate all your family members’ needs, and that should include your pet (if you have one).

Check the hotel’s website for services and amenities they offer. If you’re bringing your pet with you or have a family member with special requirements, make sure to include this in your search.

Proximity also matters. Choose hotel accommodations that allow you to visit major tourist attractions and do many recreational activities without the hassle of frequent travels to and fro.

If you plan to do scuba diving or kayaking after an activity at the Mazda Raceway, shorten your list by considering only nearby hotels. Find a hotel that conveniently allows you to do both.

Read hotel reviews. They are very reliable because these are actual experiences of previous guests. Is the place really accessible to places you want to visit? Does it really provide special services? Are the hotel staff friendly? Are the rooms clean and spacious? These are significant insights you can gain from reputable reviews.

Events in Monterey, such as the Sea Otter Classic or the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, offer a perfect way to start spring break. Bring the whole family along and book your stay at the Bay Park Hotel!
