Monterey Bay Sights
Overview of Sights
Monterey Bay has without a doubt the most stunning and breath taking sights in all of California. Due to the state's natural tectonic forces, the entire region is hemmed in between jagged mountains that rise from the ocean giving way to perfect geography that makes perfect backdrop for the charming towns and golf courses that dot the landscape.
In order from highest to lowest reccomendation
Every year between October and November the town of Pacific Grove is overrun by thousands of Monarch Butterflies on their migratory route from Mexico. A true spectacle and a must see for die hard nature lovers.
One of the premier golf courses and resorts in the world. Perched on cliffs that over look the Pacific, you don't have to pay the high golfing fees to visit, dine, stay or just have a glass of wine while taking in the breath taking scenerey.
One of the main tourist draws in Monterey Bay, Old Fisherman's Wharf is a collection of hundreds of docked fishing boats, restaurants serving up delicious fried shrimp and booths and stalls selling a variety of souviners.
Clint Eastwood once served as mayor of this stunningly beautiful and charming coastal town on the ocean. Surrounded by a forest of sycamore trees fairytale looking store fronts line the main street of Ocean Ave and gourmet resturants sprinkled in between.
Coastal town that sits at the very tip of the Monterey Penninsula. Small drives give way to victorian homes that look like they belong in New England, the annual Monarch Butterfly migration and beautiful views of the coastline that words cannot express.
Althought overrun by tourists, Cannery Row is a must see on any visit to Monterey Bay. Old canneries converted into shops, bars and restuaraunts with the bay as a backdrop gives to an exciting vibe. The area has something for everyone.
