Monterey Tourism

Monterey is a coastal city located in the midst of rocky Central California. Originally, it was the capital city of California, and that’s why it’s home to the older buildings in the state. It is home to California’s first theater, public building, public library, public school, printing press, and newspaper. Monterey and its surrounding areas have long attracted famous writers and artists. 

Cannery Row, a waterfront street in New Monterey, is known for being lined with defunct sardine canning factories. Its picturesque charm was immortalized because of author John Steinbeck’s 1945 book ‘Cannery Row’. Carmel-by-the-Sea is a fairytale-like beach village with its cute cottages and galleries. It is also home to the museums and libraries of the Carmel Mission. Monterey Wine Country is renown for its famous wines, ranging from the California Pinot Noir to Cabernets to Chardonnays. The first place to visit for wine-tasting woulod be Carmel Valley.
