Nice little stores and cafes but most of them are in big need to renew their premises. It looks very dated and because of the narrowness of the passages, tourists conglomerations are common.

Came here at the end of the path from Cannery Row. We stopped by the stores and got some candy and ice cream and were able to do some sight-seeing. Highly recommend taking the path from here to Cannery Row or vice versa. In regards...More

Great harbor and bay views, but very touristy. All restaurants try to get you to come in offering various samples or discounts. Most restaurants seamed a little pricey, but I get you are paying for the outstanding views. A few typical gift shops and counted...More

I live 15 min away and visit all the time. Well worth the walk from nearby hotels. Great place to take a walk and bring the kids.

If you're visiting Monterey, you should make a trip to Old Fisherman's Wharf to say that you've been there. There are some good restaurants, but it's your standard fisherman's wharf/boardwalk. Nothing out of the ordinary, very pretty and nice, but it can get very crowded....More
