Monterey Bay Aquarium

This is one of the best designed aquariums going. A unique feature is the two-story tank, home to a kelp forest in which swim sunfish, sharks, and the occasional diver tasked with squeegeeing the algae off the tank walls. Sand dabs are displayed in shelf-like tanks ideally suited to the flat fish, and a school of sardines swim in an endless circle in their cylindrical tank home. If you want to interact with some aquatic dwellers, you're invited to pet the bat rays (oddly velvet-like). The jellyfish display shows that they are like something from another planet.

WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca

One of the most prestigious race tracks in the world, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca has been building its reputation ever since it opened in 1950. Since its opening, the course has raced legends like Parnelli Jones, Roger Penske, Bobby Rahal and Valentino Rossi. The course gathered most of its fame in the 1960s and 1970s and has only been gaining more. The track's motor-sports include cars and bikes. The Global Tuner Grand Prix is held here which is an international event on a large scale. To know more about the schedule of events here at Mazda, the racers and the ticket details, check out the website or contact the venue.

San Carlos Cathedral

The San Carlos Cathedral, also known as Royal Presidio Chapel, was constructed in the 1770s. As the oldest functioning Catholic Church and the first stone building in the state of California, this cathedral's significance to local history is undeniable. The beautiful architectural style of this cathedral is breathtaking, with Spanish and Moorish influences.

Pierce Ranch Vineyards

Tucked away amidst sprawling farms in the vast countryside, Pierce Ranch Vineyards is where some of the city's finest wines come to life. Spanning a massive 30 acres (12.14 hectares) of vineyards and farmland, everything that goes into the wine is grown on-site, which helps maintain consistency in flavor and texture. Regular tours of the vineyard offer a glimpse of what it takes to produce a fine batch of wine. Visitors can witness the various stages of production, from the picking of fruits, to the barreling and ageing process.
