How to Get There

Monterey is located along the beautiful coastal Highway 1 in California, about 2 ½ hours south of San Francisco. The drive from Silicon Valley or San Jose to Monterey takes about 1 ½ hours. Monterey is a 6 ½ hour drive away from Los Angeles.

The most scenic route from San Francisco to Monterey undoubtedly is along Highway 1, which passes through Santa Cruz, home to the historic Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Roaring Camp Railroads, several of many long-standing kids’ activities in Northern California. This route is breathtaking but takes time. So, if you are planning only a day trip to Monterey, you may want to use Highway 101 for a quicker drive.

Treasure Hunt: The Ride is located right at 700 Cannery Row, surrounded by many Monterey hotels, family attractions, shops, and restaurants. You also can find ample parking garages in Cannery Row. The popular Monterey Trolley car stops right outside the attraction. Simply get off at the stop for the John Steinbeck Memorial.

Monterey Regional Airport (MRY) offers domestic air service to West Coast cities in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Washington, as well as Dallas TX, and Denver Colorado. International air service is available from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and San Jose Mineta International Airport (SJC).

Monterey Weather

Treasure Hunt: The Ride is an indoor activity, housed in a historic cannery building along Monterey’s Cannery Row. So, the attraction can be operated rain or shine, independent of the weather in Monterey CA.

Blessed with a mild, Mediterranean climate, Monterey weather offers year-round pleasant temperatures with lows of 45 Fahrenheit in the winter months and 55 degrees in the summer. Average high temperatures range from 60 degrees Fahrenheit in winter and 67 degrees in early fall when Californians enjoy their Indian summer. Nights are cool, while it can be sunny and warm during the day. Rain can be expected from early November to early April, while hardly any rain will fall from mid-April to late October.

Like in many places around Northern California, we recommend being dressed in layers to ward off cool temperatures and damp fog in the morning or evening hours and be ready for sunshine during the day.
