Few places on earth can live up to their own mythology, but Monterey is a notable exception. No matter what you`ve heard or seen in feature films, nothing can prepare you for the jaw-dropping beauty along Monterey`s fabled coast and village-like pedestrian thoroughfares. Monterey is nestled on California`s rugged central coast. The Cannery Row, one-time center of the sardine-packing industry, was immortalized by novelist John Steinbeck. Today, it`s a popular strip of gift shops, seafood restaurants and bars in converted factories. It is also acknowledged for the Monterey Bay Aquarium, with thousands of marine animals and plants on display in underwater and interactive exhibits.
