elephantBay seniors who are always ready to respond to the call of the wild will want to check out Vision Quest Ranch outside of Monterey. Its 51 acres are a habitat for elephants, lions, tigers, bears and alligators either waiting their casting call for film and television projects or rescued and retired here. Tours run every day at 1 pm, $10 for adults, $8 for children. Trainers let you play with and feed the elephants for example, and even later in the day put them to bed in their heated barns. The site also houses a B&B where your continental breakfast is delivered by pachyderm (with the help of a staff member). The canvas bungalows here go from $175 to $265 a night.
