At the south end of the picturesque Monterey Bay, Monterey has long been one of California’s influential cities, housing the state’s first theater, public library, printing press and newspaper. Monterey is home to many unique styles of architecture blended together, an indication of Monterey’s importance to the Mexicans, Spanish and Americans. Monterey has been home to many artists and writers, notably Thomas Kincaid, John Steinbeck, and Robert Louis Stevenson. The Monterey Jazz Festival bills itself as the “longest running jazz festival in the world,” and the city has more than 30 preserved historic buildings. The Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row and Fisherman’s Wharf are all family-friendly attractions, and the Old Whaling Station is home to what is thought to be the last existing whalebone sidewalk in the U.S.
