Rachel shares insights about what’s new and happening on the Monterey Peninsula: from Cannery Row, to Pacific Grove, Carmel and Carmel Valley, the new breweries in Salinas, exploring the fabled River Road Wine Trail in Salinas Valley and hiking through Pinnacles National Park—California’s newest National Park.
