Plan to travel for this very SPECIAL EVENT. These historic adobes are preserved and protected under the state parks department and are open to the public only 2 days each year. This night is one of them! And they are all decorated for the holidays in the period they were built. This is a special treat our club sanctions only every 4 years or so, that way you are able to see the newest adobe building restored and open to view.
PLEASE NOTE: Start Point open from 1:00pm-5:00pm
START POINT: Dennis the Menace Playground
El Estero Park, 777 Pearl St, Monterey, CA 93940.
Driving North on Highway 1, take the Aguajito Rd exit. Bottom of ramp, turn left. Go through two lights.
Driving South on Highway 1, take the Monterey exit. At first light turn right onto Camino Aguajito.
Both: Go to next STOP sign and go left on Pearl St./ Third St. (Street sign on right is Third St.) Park is on your right.
This special event is comprised of a 6K walk in Pacific Grove followed by a short 5K loop in Monterey. The adobes in Monterey come to life after 5:00pm, so you want to save this loop for last!
Come to the Start Point for all maps and all directions. Pacific Grove will be a drive to that start point for the 6km walk, then will return to Dennis The Menace Park afterwards to park and begin the Adobes loop.
Flashlight and warm clothing recommended for the evening.In order to enter and enjoy the adobes in their special holiday decor we urge you to buy these tickets before you travel! *Christmas in the Adobes tickets are on sale ($25/person) at www.mshpa.org.
