Monterey Bay is definitely worth a visit if you’re staying in the region. The view is fantastic and it’s a good possibility to enjoy the silence after a city tour or road trip.

Being from MN, I can’t tell you how cool it was to see so much wild life just while walking from Monterey Aquarium to fisherman’s wharf...harbor seas, sea lions, sea otters, pacific loons, jelly fish, various birds and even a whale. I WAS IN HEAVEN!

Lots of stunning places to pull off in a car or walk to along Monterey Bay. Blue ocean and nice beaches to explore with amazing scenery from the wharf to the sailboats. Love Monterey
