Monterey Airport Guide

Everyone who visits Monterey has to spend some time down at the Fisherman’s Wharf. Now very touristy and with lots of entertainment attractions including some excellent fish restaurants, you’ll still get an inkling for the history of the place, especially looking at the street names such as Cannery Row. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is a great place to visit for the innovative way the fish are displayed, swimming around you as you walk through. Finally, take a walk through old Monterey to see the remaining colonial buildings and hear Spanish still being spoken, generations after Monterey became American.

Monterey Info

Monterey is a fairly recent addition to the US having been claimed as part of California after the 1846 Battle of Monterey when the US General Sloat defeated the Spanish and claimed California for the US. It’s a cultured city, in its time having the first public school, printing press, library and theatre in California, a tradition it upholds today. It was an important fishing port until overfishing took its toll and is now home to the stunning Monterey Bay Aquarium.
