Monterey California

Monterey is "the big city" on the Monterey Peninsula, dominating the waterfront of Monterey Bay, home to sea lions and otters; visited by migrating whales. Many Monterey visitors enjoy boat trips out on the bay to see these creature close up. The city is best known for the Monterey Bay Aquarium and nearby historic Cannery Row.  
Even if you never leave land, there are many reasons to visit Monterey. There are plenty of hotels, motels and B&B’s for visitors – as well as restaurants, shops, children’s parks, boats, waterfront trails and golf courses.
