Monterey is a waterfront community on the central coast of California with a temperate climate year-round. Kayaking, scuba diving, surfing, whale watching and beach-going are just some of the activities to be enjoyed. Golf, shopping and driving the spectacular coastline to Big Sur are a few of the many land-based adventures.
Monterey is home to the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium. A stone’ throw from the aquarium is Cannery Row, where John Steinbeck drew inspiration for his novel about life in Monterey during the heyday of the sardine canning industry. Today “the Row” is lined with hotels, shops and restaurants and features fun activities for the entire family.
Another nearby site, a mere stroll from Cannery Row on the scenic Recreation Trail, is Monterey’s fantastic Fisherman’s Wharf, filled with great restaurants and shops. Along the way, you’ll see harbor seals, sea lions, sea otters, pelicans and speed demon cormorants skimming over the water’s surface in their natural habitats on the beautiful waterfront of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
Monterey is also the home of the Monterey Jazz Festival, the longest running jazz festival in the world founded in 1958.
