Discounts on a variety of accommodations--including the romantic Ventana Inn at Big Sur--plus 2-for-1 entrees at local restaurants and a variety of special entertainment and shopping deals are included in this year's "Holiday Bounty From Monterey County" program.
Local hotels, motels and B&Bs, restaurants, retailers, wineries, galleries and golf courses, among others, are participating in the program, which is scheduled from Dec. 1 through Jan. 31 and is sponsored by the Monterey County Hospitality Assn. and American Express.
Visitors who spend at least one night in a "Holiday Bounty" hotel, motel or B&B will receive a package of gift certificates from participating members of the association. To get the package, all charge purchases must be made with the American Express card.
Holiday Bounty reservations may be made through Resort II Me, a reservation service, at (800) 449-1499. A free brochure may be obtained by calling the association, (800) 695-0123.
