I love Monterey, it is a great place to spend some time when driving on the California Coastal Route. A must stop, the Aquarium is one of the best and the Pacific Ocean never looks better. You even get to see Otters.

Made famous by Steinbeck, this town has perserved its cannery history, and successfully turned it into a scenic place to wander around. The aquarium is a must see if you are in the area, and if you are a diver and can take the cold water, the kelp forests just offshore host about 17,000 species and make for great diving.

I LOVE MONTEREY...
I admit that I'm surprised that I havent written in a while but it's been a busy couple of months. Since I just got back Monterey I'll start off with that. It was a great couple of days checking out new and old spots. There was a number of tourists but what can you expect for Fourth of July? It's going to be busy everywhere. Long story short, dont let the overcast fool you because you'll be negligent with the sun block like myself and end up looking like a Super Raccoon! ;D

If you're a John Steinbeck fan, you'll well know that Monterey, California was the setting for his tragic-comedy, Cannery Row. While the shacks, canneries and whorehouses are long gone, Monterey manages to maintain a little bit of its original character despite the best efforts of gentrification. All literary reasons aside, Monterey's natural beauty is draw enough to attract many a visitor. The aquarium there neatly captures the unique marine biology this stretch of California's Gold Coast has to offer - can't think of many other places where you can adopt a orphaned sea otter!
