Visit the beautiful pacific coast town of Monterey, home to its world winning aquarium, award-winning food and wine, and stunning Pacific Coast views.
Monterey is a city located in Monterey County on California’s central coast. It stands at an elevation of 26 feet (8 m) above sea level on a land area of 8.466 sq mi (21.93 km2). The city had California’s first theater, public building, public library, publicly funded school, printing press, and newspaper. The city and surrounding area have attracted artists since the late 19th century and many celebrated painters and writers have lived there. Until the 1950s, there was an abundant fishery. Among Monterey’s notable present-day attractions are the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman’s Wharf and the annual Monterey Jazz Festival.
Really Worth It!
I took the Monterey Carmel tour yesterday, it was really worth it. Beautiful sightseeing, superb route. George our driver was very interesting and helpful. I had a great time and do recommend. One word, sit on the right side of the bus as it is easier to take photos, I was on the left but succeeded anyways and took beautiful pictures of the stunning landscape.
