Short link to this post: https://bit.ly/WildTriMRY

To really know Monterey County, take time to go beyond the typical tourism destinations such as the Monterey Peninsula’s Carmel and Pebble Beach, or the Big Sur coast, or North County, or even John Steinbeck’s hometown—the county’s largest city and county seat, Salinas. Explore the Salinas Valley and its cities and other communities, including Gonzales, Soledad, Greenfield, King City, San Lucas, San Ardo, and more.
The Bradley community will be welcoming thousands of visitors to their area on May 4-6, 2018. That’s when “The Woodstock of Triathlon” comes to the South Shore of Monterey County’s popular fresh-water recreation area, Lake San Antonio, for the 35th Annual Wildflower Triathlon Experience.
