Monterey in December

Jump to last reply

My husband and our 2 daughters (14 & 17) are attempting to plan a trip in December around the school holidays - basically Christmas to New Year's. We looked into the Caribbean, but accommodations are limited and airfare is quite pricey. So I got to thinking about California. I've always wanted to go there! I've been reading the forum posts and responses, and all describe Monterey & Carmel as beautiful. However, I'm wondering if someone, perhaps a local, can give me some real expectations about the weather at that time of year. Weather sites list the temp's as about 45 in the evenings to 65 during the day. Is that accurate? I'm guessing it might feel damp, and therefor cooler, by the water. Those were the approximate temp's last Christmas when we stayed in St. Pete, FL, which was having a cold snap, and my family was none too pleased as we were expecting the temp's to be warmer. So any input/response will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Lisa
