The town is quaint, and beautiful! So many places to eat really good food of all kinds! Shopping is great! Plenty to do for all ages! We took our granddaughters and fun was had by all!

We were glad to see how they have revitalized Old Fisherman's Wharf. I have many fond memories of numerous party boat fishing trips from this wharf. It was nice to see that Randy's Sport fishing is still offering fishing trips out on the Bay.

There are plenty of restaurants and shops to keep you occupied.
Views are good. Fun place to go and many good restaurants
to choose from. Bring a jacket or sweater even in August.

The scenery from Big Sur to San Francisco is fabulous. 17 mile
drive is a must, but just driving down past Big Sur or up towards
SF you will see breath taking scenery everywhere. Good food everywhere but bring lots of quarters. Parking is very expensive everywhere.

Having been to many towns and beaches on the West Coast, I found out that Monterey Bay is the only place that so much generously displays its beauty. However, the month of May might be the best time to see it. The Bay is more colorful than it is in other seasons with mostly depressing gray or brown withering, dying grass.

The Bay in May drew not only visitors around the country and the world but also artists who hungrily absorbed inspirations from the picturesque Bay. At least two photos attached below show the Lovers Point from two different directions.
