Amy and I took our first "sister" trip last June. We decided on beautiful Monterey, California where we could enjoy coastal food and wine... with a view!
Our hotel was very close to Monterey's Old Fisherman's Wharf.
We sampled sweet and savory authentic crepes from a small stand inside a coffee shop (one of my favorite meals of the trip) at the fisherman's wharf.
Our adventures then lead us on a scenic walk to Cannery Row, a historical area in Monterey. We made a visit to the famous Monterey Aquarium, then (of course) found a place to enjoy the view and taste local wines...
We then headed back to Old Fisherman's Wharf to enjoy one of the many happy hours and sample some of the local seafood...

We couldn't be in Monterey and not make a trip into the well-known Carmel Valley, wine country. We booked a wine tasting tour with the Wine Trolley...
So many great (food&wine) memories.

If you are planning a trip to Monterey or Carmel Valley, The Wine Trolley Tour is highly recommended!! We had sang, drank, laughed... it was more than a good time!
Our first sister trip was so much fun! We enjoyed amazing local food and wine, while exploring the city and it's historical spots. What a beautiful coastal area... we can't wait to go back!
