Monterey’s Fisherman’s Wharf is directly downtown Monterey with many tourist shops and seafood restaurants. Even enjoy a cup of clam chowder or seafood cocktail while strolling down the wharf. You will find not only the Sea Lions, Otters and Pelicans here, but also the charter fishing and whale watching boats.
Historic Cannery Row – subject of John Steinbeck’s famous novel is just around the corner from Fisherman’s Wharf. Here you will see the actual places Steinbeck wrote about: the sardine factories, Doc Rickett’s Lab and Wing Chong’s General Store. You will also find the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium.
