MONTEREY & CARMEL
Monterey is a scenic California coastal city that rises from the pristine Monterey Bay to pine forested hillsides with sweeping bay views. The city’s natural beauty and historic sites make it a quality residential community and premier tourist destination. A small, liveable city that prides itself on being a clean and safe place to live, Monterey is known for its sense of community and hospitality. Monterey’s residents are culturally diverse, and the City’s designation as the “language capital of the world” reflects the language skills of its residents. WCD is proud to offer the best of the best when it comes to event planning in Monterey & Carmel.

Ocean Kayaking in Monterey Bay
Along Cannery Row is the kelp forest canopy of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Kayakers get an up close look at this wonder of nature teeming with wildlife.

Edible Excursions’ explorations take place in neighborhoods where small business owners, artisans, purveyors, farmers, and restaurant chefs share their personal food stories and their passion for local, seasonal, sustainable eats.
And, of course, along with learning about each area’s culinary and cultural background, guests are treated to signature tastes from seven to nine different stops along the way.
Cycling & Electric Bike Tours
Explore the Monterey Peninsula, from Del Monte Beach to Pebble Beach on your choice of a beach cruiser, road bike or even an electric powered bicycle.
Monterey & Pebble Beach are amazing areas for biking adventures. “These long beaches are enticing to the idle man. It would be hard to find a walk more solitary and at the same time more exciting to the mind.” R.L. Stevenson.
