We parked too far away. There is parking closer, maximum 4 hours for a spot, closer to Cannery Row. We parked in a lot $2.00 an hour. We had ice cream at Nestle Toll House, it was okay. Service and staff friendly. Bought souvenirs at the Sea Otter shop, cute shirts for our grandchildren, Mackerel Jack's, tee shirts and hoodie for myself. We did see sea otters by the waterfront. We would definitely go again.

This is a must see for visitors to this area. It's a touristy shopping and eating experience. The best part is the view of the Bay. Otherwise, just OK>

While many of the shops were aimed at tourists, the wharf , scenery, and sea breeze made it worth the time.

Of course there are dozens of souvenir shops. BUT, there are lots of historic points and points of interest for fans of Steinbeck, as well as good places to eat and walk along the water.
