Monterey Walking Tours
Take a walk through historic Monterey, including Cannery Row, with the Original Monterey Walking Tours.
Monterey was the capital of Alta California during the Spanish and Mexican periods, prior to statehood in 1850. Walk past the Customs House, California's Historic Landmark Number One, started by the Spanish in 1814 and completed in 1846 when Commodore John Sloat claimed California for the U.S.
Visitors will see Colton Hall, now a museum, where children once attended school and the state's constitution was written in 1849. The Larkin House and Stevenson House where Robert Louis Stevenson stayed are also landmarks on the tour.
Cannery Row on Ocean View Ave. is now a series of shops, boutiques, art galleries and restaurants in the old buildings that were once sardine canneries. Learn about the characters in Cannery Row based on author John Steinbeck's wife and friends. Steinbeck also set Tortilla Flat and East of Eden in the Monterey area.
See the old fish processing areas and enjoy nearby Fisherman's Wharf and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
