We really admired the architecture and the plaques dotted about were quite rightly proud of the history and heritage of the place . Excellent re energising of a past working area .

As part of visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium also walked to Cannery Row which is adjacent. As I am a lover of John Steinbeck literature it was fantastic to walk through this piece of history. For literature fans would highly recommend.

Good place to walk around. We saw some stores and we've had lunch in Bubba Gump. It's a good place to spend an afternoon.

When I was a kid in the 80's this area was pretty much abandoned, once the aquarium opened the whole area blossomed, It is a of touristy stuff but still fun never the less.

Weekdays are best for older adults. The little shops are easy to take your time and look at everything. Many good eateries along the street.

Many small shops to peruse; bought stuff at the Pebble Beach shop and Tollhouse cookies and candy shops. Easy to walk on level sidewalks, frequent crosswalks, light car traffic. Beautiful views and free seating on benches and table/chairs on the Monterey Plaza Hotel boardwalk, no...More

Variety of shopping, restaurants, entertainment and amazing views! Parking can be a bit of a hassle, so just head directly to the public garage and save yourself some time.

No where near the same amount. Fishermans wharf is full of outside restaurants attracting the birds. No where near the same problem you should be fine.
