New Feature!



Whether you're in the mood for coastal nostalgia or hope to catch a glimpse of migrating grey whales, Monterey is not to be missed. Walk down historic Canary Row and investigate the lively district's many converted warehouses, which now house a variety of shops. Or, grab a bite to eat, breathe in the sea air, and imagine what the bustling spot used to be like. The town is also home to the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, located in a former cannery, and to Old Fisherman's Wharf, where working fishermen unload their catches. If you feel like doing some fishing yourself, book a spot on one of the available excursions. For more information, contact the Monterey County Convention and Visitors Bureau (888-221-1010).
