An Afternoon Activity

If you are looking for a family fun activity, get lost at Monterey Mirror Maze. This creatively designed mirror maze is great for those who love puzzles and solving problems. Try out the Laser Challenge as well where you will have to jump, crawl, climb, and sliver your way through a green laser obstacle course. Another option for an afternoon activity is Adventures by the Sea. They have a location on Cannery Row, making kayak and bike rentals super easy.

 

End Your Day with Holiday Cheer

If you are lucky enough to be in Monterey on Friday, November 26, join in on this holiday tradition and watch the Christmas tree on Cannery Row light up for the first time this season!
