First, I hope you've secured a place to stay in Monterey, Seaside, or Salinas already. Things to do mostly involve the coastal scenery, Big Sur, Point Lobos, Pebble Beach. Great drive out to Carmel Valley Village on Carmel Valley Rd. Downtown Carmel and Carmel Beach, bring your down vest in October ! That's what NorCal beaches are all about.
Don't think there would be much going on in Salinas for you.
Hopefully we'll be blessed with great weather that's typically present at the end of Summer on the central coast.

The Monterrey Aquarium is excellent. Easy to spend a half day there. There are also whale watching trips which can be wonderful if you find a good group of whales. Drive along the coast towards Big Sur. Amazing scenery. Many places to stop. We happened upon a feeding frenzy of a couple hundred birds dive bombing anchovies right next to the shore. Incredible to watch. Farther down the coast is the Hearst Mansion. Lots of little things to do also.

Very interesting area. You won't have trouble finding things to do and see.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) The aquarium is terrific, well worth spending half a day. The drive to Big Sur is a classic must do, take HWY68 to Laureles Grade road to get to Carmel Valley. There's usually an ad-hoc Porsche gathering at the Cantina (good food), and you definitely want to drive the Carmel Valley road. It terminates at Greenfield; the 101 brings you back to Salinas. Or you can do a loop around Chachagua Park, it's quiet and beautiful, take a picnic. All of the valley roads are picturesque. Please post pics for those of us unable to attend this year!

I'll be there! I'll be working as the Steward for the PCA Club Race group but should have plenty of time to look around too. We might be able to get you and your son up to the tower for a look see.

I'll be there as well - camping at the track all 3 days which is my favorite way to experience Laguna Seca. There was an earlier thread as well with some discussion of meet-ups for dinner or local drives/activities which sounds awesome.

Wow great feedback all!!! I think the aquarium seems like a winner for sure. I wish my 6 was one of the gt kit cars to maybe be elligible to run but would LOVE a look in the tower. Last one i went to was RR3 so has definitely been a minute

I will be there. At a minimum you will want to do 17 mile drive and walk around downtown Carmel. I also enjoyed Clint Eastwoods ex restaurant the Hogs Breath in downtown Carmel.

We'll be there...

Check Turo for car sharing.

Big Sur is a great drive. Nepenthe is a nice restaurant with "the" view. Go further to Ragged Point Inn for a great lunch. Plenty of stops along the way.

I will be there, but in my 991. Hotels are indeed a challenge, to find and pay for.

We have a group driving mostly 914's down from Spokane WA. One of the 4 is driving his 75 911. Should be a great trip. I'm bringing my BB. One of my buddies will drive his Tangerine 6 down. Luckily we have another friend with a 2nd home in Pebble Beach. Tough life that one has :-)

We'll be there coming up from L.A. For events at Laguna Seca, we always stay in Paso Robles. it's only a little over 100 miles between the two. Easier hotels that far out. Just get up early find some coffee and get on the road.

Excellent. I have a lot of history with Whidbey. We should stay in touch. We can post our route and days/times and see if anyone else wants to try and connect on the way.
