I love Monterey and the area mostly for it's wonderful beaches and marine life. It's a great place for a dive trip even though the water is chilly. No other destination compares to diving in a kelp forest.

Coastal living with a conscience. Located along a picture-perfect stretch of California coastline, Monterey is far enough from the hectic life of larger cities like San Jose and San Francisco, but close enough to benefit from their many amenities. With the near pristine wilderness of Big Sur to the South, and the quirky individualistic Santa Cruz to the North, there's always something interesting to get involved with, or in.

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!

Monterey is a gorgeous historic seaside town. Unfortunately, it was raining the whole time I was there, but it's still a gorgeous place. Beautiful coastal region, with plenty of beautiful ocean views.
