Big Sur enjoys some of its best weather in this month. The skies are bright blue as the moderate temperatures keep the fog at bay and the forest becomes alive with color as the leaves of the deciduous trees turn. Monarch butterflies return to their annual wintering grounds at Andrew Molera State Park and can be seen flying all around Big Sur. Watch as Humpback and Blue whales feed along the Big Sur coastline. Condor viewing tours. Fall colors along the Big Sur coast. Local concerts. Our "Indian Summer" weather is the best of the year.October
