Laguna Seca – Exceptional Race AND Vacation Destination! (Monterey, California)

Spring OR Fall In Monterey California – The Perfect Holiday!/ September 21, 2008 As photo-journalists’ and motorsport photographers, my wife and I never really go “on vacation” – we’re always at work – so over the past couple of years, we decided to make a more concerted effort to take in the sights and share our experiences about the race destinations we have the pleasure to visit.

Start Your Racing Season Off Right – Our Race Vacation To Long Beach & Catalina Island

– Plan A Family Vacation To Long Beach! In 2005 my wife and I had the opportunity of attending the IRL season opener in Homestead/Miami, Florida. This year we decided to start the racing season off right and travelled to enjoy the ChampCar season opener at Long Beach in California. While we are both race fans, we also like to travel, and in our travels to racetracks, we’ve met others that spend family vacations travelling to race destinations. We’ve found that doing research on the internet isn’t always that helpful – especially as far as combining motor racing and family vacations. Hopefully, we can help others to see the benefits of planning family vacations around race events through our experiences and a little advice on the areas that we‘ve been able to visit.
