Get the Most From the Coast
Just on the merit of being so close to the Pacific Ocean and running right along the scenic stretch of US Route 1, the coast of California already has a lot going for it. But if you are looking to do more than drive and take in the landscape, then your very next step should be making a reservation at the hotels in Marina, CA. Only 15 minutes north east of Monterey, the city is a wonderful collection of natural parks, beachfront beauty and incredible annual events.
Start with the beach that shares its name with the city it calls home and spend the day looking out over the waves or taking to the skies on a paraglider at the Marina State Beach. Then head south to the entrance of Fort Ord Dunes State Park, which stretches out into neighboring Seaside. Once part of the land that belonged to the military installation that played a major part in the history of the area, it now offers hiking, fishing and horseback riding. And make sure you time your visit to check out events like the Labor Day Parade, Otter Fest or the Marina Air Faire.
All From the Comfort of a Great Room
There’s nothing like having an incredible day outside taking in the sights and sounds of a breathtaking vista and then getting to settle into a comfortable space to unwind. With the hotels in Marina, CA, you’ll find a wonderful home away from home under the banner of both big brands and one very prestigious local name. Find economy and quality with the Quality Inn, Holiday Inn Express or Best Western and enjoy benefits like free breakfast, complimentary Internet and on-site fitness facilities. Or, take your trip to the next level at the Sanctuary Beach Resort, where you can relax with the services at the Serenity Spa and dine on steaks at the Kula Ranch Restaurant.
