We have been to this bay area many times and we will never get tired of visiting this beautiful place. America has many wonderful places but this has to be one of the most beautiful. The historic places like Cannery Row, Wharf, Pebble Beach, 17 Mile Dr., and Highway 1 are a few of places everyone must see. We will continue to visit here--already planning another vacation here next July.

But I have always adored this area. If you get the chance to visit. Go and relax in the easy and romantic pace of rich history and culture.

Extremely scenic anyway but an abundance of sardines have come into the bay lately which causes seals to go crazy for the sardines and orca whales crazy for the seals. Great time to visit.

When you are here, try out the guided or unguided Sailboat rental! My daughter and her hubby went out on a "Catboat" which means it's boom rides higher than your seated crew-no bending down when you need to tack. Simple enough for even this unsalty Sailor. We saw so much that you cannot catch from shore-like otters feeding as you sail by, or the house of John Steinbeck.

Pretty eclectic spot -there are a ton of shops and places to eat as well as things to do in e area making it pretty good for anyone. The views are great and the beach is right there.
