Monterey, CA (PRWEB) November 25, 2010
One of the best things about traveling during the holiday season is discovering new traditions. Every city puts its best foot forward for the holiday season, bringing out decorations and special events. Monterey is no exception, and with beautiful weather and great attractions year round, the city is an especially great place to visit during the holiday season. Guests who stay at the Monterey Marriott hotel will discover a winter wonderland by the sea as the city’s Custom House Plaza is transformed into an ice skating rink for the entire community to enjoy. Marriott’s Monterey on Ice Package includes tickets to the rink for each registered guest (adult or child) along with other choice amenities.
Monterey on Ice opened to the public on November 20 and runs throughout the holiday season until January 9. The rink is open daily until 10:00pm (8:00pm on Sundays). Located at the historic Custom House Plaza, it is near the Monterey Fisherman’s Wharf and affords skaters a colorful view of the coastline. The Monterey Marriott Monterey on Ice Package includes comfortable overnight accommodations, a $25 food and beverage credit, valet parking, in-room movie and tickets to the rink. Whether looking for a romantic evening or some family time, this package makes an ideal getaway. Rates start at $209 and interested parties can book online from Marriott’s Monterey Hotel Deals Page.
In addition to the skating rink, guests are also encouraged to get some holiday shopping in during their visit. On November 26, the city turns on the lights on its official Christmas tree in Cannery Row. Naturally, Santa will do the honors and will be accompanied by carolers. This popular shopping and dining destination will be decked out for the holidays through New Years. Of course, Monterey has great permanent attractions waiting to be discovered as well. The famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, whale watching tours and wine tasting name just a few.
