    Anyone in/been to Monterey?

    Advertisements
    The outcome is looking good I guess for orders to Monterey, CA and I was wondering who had been there before or who is there now and can give me their opinions on it and any information. I'm trying to gather as much as I can

    It is sooooooo pretty up there!!! We've never been stationed there, but I do have relatives in Seaside. The housing is REALLY nice!!! I wouldn't mind getting stationed there!!!

    I've visited there before and it is gorgeous!!! There's a bunch of neat shops/restaurants. And the Monterey Bay Aquarium is one of the best aquariums I've been to.

    It looks nice but seems like most of the housing areas are assigned to officers I do know they redid a whole area for E1-E9 but I'm worried they'll only give us a two bedroom and we'll get the old housing. They don't require one room for each child like in Hawaii, at least from what I could find online.

    it is very nice down there but costly....I know they have the newer housing out there plus some of the older housing on Ft Ord..I have a friend stationed down there right now..if you want I can hook you up with her. Drop me a PM if you want me too.

    That'd be great thanks!

    How costly is it compared to SD or Hawaii do you think?
