Monterey, one of the most historic waterfront communities in California boasts a temperate climate year-round and is known for preservation of its history, culture and natural environment. Kayaking, scuba diving, surfing, whale watching and beach-going are just some of the activities to be enjoyed in the Monterey area. Monterey is home to the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, a must-see attraction that delights and educates millions of visitors every year. A visit is not complete without strolling down 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 exceptional dining experiences highlighting fresh local and sustainable seafood.
