My brother and I had great expectations of Monterey Car week and we were not disappointed. Most days we managed two or three events plus a full day at the exciting Laguna Seca Raceway and at the fabulous Pebble Beach Concours. We were made very welcome in the US Classic Car community and had a great time with these fellow enthusiasts and their cars. The local events in Carmel (Rich America) and Pacific Grove (Old America) are great and have much to offer. Both events take over the town centres so you mix right on in. To all of that, add: the Big Sur, 17 Mile Drive, Point Lobos State Park, San Francisco bridge and two absolute highlights! Sunday & Monday 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. in Monterey a stream of trucks unload Sotheby’s Auction cars – what great fun and Wednesday at the Pebble Beach Auction site eating with the truckers who were delivering the PB Concours cars for Sunday. Priceless!! Trevor & Roger Corbitt

Monterey Classic Car Festival If you're a classic car enthusiast, there is no better series of events around. There's an endless selection of auto shows, auto memorabilia and so much more. Many of these events are totally free, too, adding to the fun. Some of the major events include; Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Quail Lodge’s Motorsports Gathering, Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, Legends of the Autobahn, Concorso Italiano and the Concours d’LeMons for the ugliest cars and “worst in show”. Of the classic car auctions scheduled during the Monterey Classic Car Week, the most prestigious ones do charge an admission to see the cars and the auctions but visitors can often see the cars before, during, and after the auction in the relevant hotel parking lots. Admission to some auctions is free and many include beautiful cars.
Santa Monica is the perfect beach town with a plethora of attractions. More so than adjacent Malibu or Venice Beach, Santa Monica manages the ideal balance of seaside charm and coastal sophistication and at just 8.3 square miles, you’ll find Santa Monica to be very walkable, yet with a laid-back warmth to it. The city also offers plenty of things to do. Your itinerary can be as complex or as simple as you wish, fill your days with museum-hopping and world-class shopping, or relax on the beach and watch the world go by.
San Francisco - A crimson bridge, cable cars, a sparkling bay, and streets lined with elegant Victorian homes, San Francisco is undeniably one of the world’s great cities. Located along the Northern California at the state’s distinctive bend in the coast, the region has an alluring magic that stretches beyond the bay to diverse cities with nightlife and trend-setting cuisine.
