Disclaimer
"Take a step back to a time when Monterey held the distinction of being the 'Sardine Capital of the World'. As you stroll along Cannery Row, you'll be reminded of the famous John Steinbeck novel that bears the same name. What was once a dilapidated industrial hub has become a trendy waterfront with restaurants, galleries, shops and of course the Monterey Bay Aquarium which we highly recommend." Jason Cohen, Travel Director
