Back in April 2017 we debuted the “Destination Spotlight” on America’s #1 Travel Radio Show with the goal of featuring lesser known locations that are clearly worthy of your travel considerations.  The segment was an instant hit with our show fans, and during our 3 Aug 2019 live broadcast of RMWorldTravel with Robert & Mary Carey and Rudy Maxa, we showcased our 50th destination — this time focusing on a part of California that is hands-down one of our most favorite — Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur.  Rick Aldinger is a local and long-time travel industry expert on the area, and we asked him to join us to share this special part of the world that’s about 2.5 hours south of San Francisco, and 4 hours north of Santa Barbara on the beautiful California coast.  Monterey features a world-class aquarium, busy pier and wharf, boating/fishing and more.  About 15 minutes down the road is the charming town of Carmel, that’s a treasure offering a little something for everyone.  There area features perhaps the best golf in the world — including Pebble Beach, there’s 17-Mile Drive that includes the Lone Cypress, inviting beaches, and a welcoming climate year round.  You can hear the full interview that aired across our national network of 410+ RMWorldTravel radio affiliates, and now archived on our website here …
