As a kid I begged my parents to take me here all the time. Slides, swings, sand, maze, bridges, etc. Can rent paddle boats or walk across the street to the beach. Plenty of parking and good Food Trucks typically show up.

Sightseeing

San Francisco is 2 hours away by car. If road trips are your thing, San Francisco can be day tripped. Monterey to San Francisco along HWY 1 is beautiful. Half Moon Bay or Davenport are good stops to break the trip up.
