Area Attractions

Few places on earth can live up to their own mythology, but Monterey is a notable exception. No matter what you’ve heard or seen in feature films, nothing can prepare you for the jaw dropping beauty along its fabled coast and village-like pedestrian thoroughfares. John Steinbeck was a frequent visitor, and drew considerable inspiration from area landmarks including Cannery Row, which he helped to immortalize in his novel of the same name. Today, restaurants, boutiques and attractions like the Monterey Bay Aquarium have helped make Monterey a favorite destination for visitors from around the world.

Monterey Bay Aquarium

Discover life in Monterey’s bay without leaving dry land at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Dedicated to marine research and conservation, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is known throughout the world for its interactive exhibits and ability to present marine life on a truly grand scale. Learn more

Cannery Row

In January 1958, the City of Monterey officially re-named Ocean View Avenue “Cannery Row” in honor of John Steinbeck. Today’s Cannery Row also features more than 25 restaurants stretching along the historic streets and waterfront, offering a variety of cuisines from formal to casual. Visitors can also browse through an eclectic blend of specialty shops and local artists’ galleries, and sample Monterey County wines and gourmet foods. It’s easy to shed your car and go “green and marine” on Cannery Row, taking in the wonders of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary by scuba diving with the starfish, kayaking with the sea otters, or bike riding from beach to beach along the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreational Trail. Learn more

IMAX Theater

Just a block from the Monterey Bay Aquarium is Cannery Row’s brand new IMAX Theater! Watch feature length 3D movies and dive into 12,000 watts of digital-surround sound and giant-screen action. The Cannery Row IMAX Theater also houses an exclusive Guy Buffet Art Gallery, and the Edgewater Café which serves Italian favorites such as gelato, sorbetto, espresso, pastries and chocolates.

Outdoor Activities

Kayaking

Kayaking is a special way to experience the Monterey Bay and its environs. Floating on the water in a single or two-person kayak, you can get “up close and personal” with the sea otters, harbor seals, sea lions and other inhabitants of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. And whether you’re an expert or are interested in taking your first kayak lesson, Monterey offers an unparalleled experience for all levels.

Several local outfitters offer safety instruction and interpretive tours of the Monterey Bay and Elkhorn Slough led by marine biologists, which provide an insider’s appreciation for the fragile ecosystems. They usually offer group or individual lessons, kayaking accessories, a place to change, and, often, a place to take a hot shower.

Fisherman’s Wharf

Old Fisherman’s Wharf in downtown Monterey should be on the “must-do” list of every visitor to the area. This is a great place to take in the sights and sounds and smells of Monterey. Because neighboring Wharf 2 is the heart of the area’s thriving fishing industry, you can usually watch the working trawlers unloading the catch of the day – just look for all of the seagulls hoping for a handout to know who’s had a successful day on the Bay! Stroll down the wharf with a cup of hot clam chowder, or stop by one of several restaurants featuring fresh Monterey Bay seafood. You can photograph sea lions and otters frolicking in the calm inner harbor waters, or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, take to the waters with a glass bottom boat tour, deep-sea fishing trip or whale watching tour in season

17 Mile Drive and Pebble Beach

Discover Nature’s treasures as you explore one of the most scenic drives anywhere in the world. 17 Mile Drive, which runs through Del Monte Forest, is seventeen miles of sea and sky, immaculate golf courses, and dream homes set graciously behind elegant gates. Here you will experience the magic of this legendary scenic tour that’s home to The Lone Cypress, Seal and Bird Rocks, Fanshell Beach, Point Joe, and the colliding currents of The Restless Sea, as well as the natural habitat of the black cormorants, brown pelicans, California sea otters, harbor seals, and idle sea lions. Additionally, along the way, you’ll encounter the emerald fairways of such famous golf courses as The Links at Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill and the world-renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links. For a gourmet picnic lunch along 17-Mile Drive, visit Pebble Beach Market adjacent to The Lodge at Pebble Beach.
