  • Address: Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey, CA 93940, USA
Just like its San Francisco counterpart, Monterey’s Fisherman’s Wharf is crammed full of souvenir shops, candy stores, street performers and seafood restaurants all vying for tourist dollars.

Though it is most definitely a crowded tourist scene, Fisherman’s Wharf is more than worth a visit for the bay views, sea lion and pelican-spotting, and eating clam chowder from a sourdough bowl. Many restaurants offer free samples of chowder to passersby, so you can compare before settling on a place to eat.  Several restaurants also offer more incentives such as free calamari appetizers.

The neighboring Wharf II is the heart of Monterey’s fishing industry and you can watch the trawlers unloading the day’s catch. Charter boat companies offer deep-sea fishing cruises, and other activities on offer include glass bottom boat tours and whale watching tours.

Practical Info:

There are several parking garages right beside Fisherman’s Wharf, but you can save on fees by grabbing a free spot on Figueroa Street, which is just a few blocks away.
