There are so many unique attractions in Monterey that it can be hard to pick just one! Here’s a quick overview of Monterey County’s top attractions.
MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM
Called “one of America’s most captivating aquariums” by ForbesTraveler.com, the famed Monterey Bay Aquarium is teeming with discoveries and interactive exhibits. Dedicated to marine research and conservation, the Monterey Bay Aquarium presents marine life on a truly grand scale.
In January 1958, the City of Monterey officially re-named Ocean View Avenue “Cannery Row” in honor of John Steinbeck, the author of the well-known novel by the same name. Today’s Cannery Row, anchored by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, stretches along the waterfront and features restaurants, hotels, specialty shops, local artists’ galleries and wine tasting rooms.
Take in the sights, sounds and smells of Monterey’s thriving fishing industry as working trawlers unload their catch of the day (and seagulls try to get in on the action). Snap photos of sea lions and otters frolicking in the calm inner harbor waters or get up close and personal during a glass bottom boat tour, deep-sea fishing trip or whale watching tour. Don’t forget to grab a cup of steaming hot clam chowder, or stop by one of several restaurants featuring fresh Monterey Bay seafood. Fisherman’s Wharf in downtown Monterey should be on visitor’s “must-do” list.
