“Cannery Row”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I had visited this area in 2000. Seems like something had changed. Granted, there was a big pro golf tour in Pacific Grove, but it seemed like parking was at a premium. The shops on the water front are a little pricey but it didn't get better through-out town. Lover's Point was a very beautiful scenic stop near by. I bought everyone fleeces jackets opposed to t-shirts as they were much cheaper. Many of the food places had samples of clam chowder. There is also a harley-davidson shop, although the t-shirt selection was very limited.

“Spend some time there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Great wineries and places to eat before heading out to the Aquarium. Lots of places to stop and look for whales waiting on lunch to be delivered. Graba book, a glass of wine, and a friend to take pictures and it will be an afternoon well spent.

“Is getting very expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We were here 3 years ago and it was a lovely spot where we enjoyed clam chowder, some local beers and light shopping. We came back looking forward to the same but the prices have kicked up quite a bit, food quality has gone down, just too busy and touristy now. Aquarium is pricey at $35 per person.

“Nice area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We stayed on Cannery Row this visit and loved the location because it is central to all sights in the Monterey area. There are many art shops but I mostly liked just walking around. Nothing is too impressive except for the Aquarium.
