Only an hour from Pinnacles, head to the California coast to enjoy the ocean. Monterey and Carmel both have fun shopping areas and beaches to relax and spend the day at.

My favorite part of this charming town is sunset. Each night is a free show, where everyone gathers on the beach to watch the sun melt into the ocean.
