The highlight of the Monterey Peninsula is the stretch of scenic overlooks that characterises the famous 17-Mile Drive. And nearby is the lively, seaside community of Monterey itself. The charming town has two distinct landmarks - Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row, both immortalised by novelist, John Steinbeck. These historic spots are well worth a visit and you should check out the quirky shops, seafood restaurants, art galleries and the pier and also take a whale watching tour around the picturesque bay.
Monterey is extremely popular amongst the Californian set for weekends away, and does become very busy. Talk to us about the better deals and availability for midweek stays.
