    There's a beach that is a 30 minutes walk from the school. There's also stores down the street that would also take a 20-30 minute walk. There are activities sometimes on campus, but you usually don't see too many students outside unless it's a really sunny day and the weather is extremely weird here. With your tuition, though, you can get free transportation through the buses so you can go wherever you want. Even to San Jose and back for free.

    Nature enthusiasts, rejoice! CSUMB is located a mere half an hour away from the breathtaking Big Sur State Park and the world-famous Highway 1 scenic route. Those who love hiking, exploring nature, magnificent displays of marine life, or simply beautiful sunsets, this would be a great place for you. Those looking for raging parties on greek row may be looking at the wrong university. CSUMB has a much more relaxed, laid back pace compared to other urban universities. There is an incredible amount of history to see in Monterey as well as beautiful scenery. For the student who can enjoy a little peace and quiet on a foggy day, CSUMB is right up your alley!

    There is a lot of natural beauty surrounding CSUMB. There are many hikes students can go on including Garrapata, Point Lobos, and Big Sur. Lovers Point is also a popular place for nature lovers as well as the 17mile drive. There is a beach that is about 20min. walking distance from main campus and many others if you are willing to drive. There are also plenty of restaurants in the area including Fishermans Warf which is a collection of sea food restaurants on a deck. This place is well known because almost every restaurant gives free tasters of delicious clam chowder tot he visitors. There are also bars in the downtown for those over 21. If you are willing to drive some ways San Fransisco is about 2 hours away and Santa Cruz is about 45 mins away.
