Like most local coastal cities, Pacific Grove relies on tourism.
This week, the Monterey County Convention and Visitors Bureau wants to recognize not only the vital component to the local economy, but the people who help attract the crowds to the beautiful Central Coast.
Monterey will help celebrate National Tourism Week with the Monterey County Convention and Visitors Bureau May 6-10.
A "Tourism Matters" reception will be on Tuesday, May 7, 5pm to 7pm at the El Estero Visitor Center with an outside pavilion sponsored by the Eco-Infinity Group, located at 401 Camino El Estero in Monterey.
The Monterey County Vintners and Growers Association will pour local wines with accompanied appetizers. Do not forget to bring your business card for chances to win epic prizes!
