Monterey is a city in the U.S. Let the collections at The Dali Expo and Venture Gallery capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ocean Avenue and West Cliff Drive. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Monterey: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Moss Landing), Big Sur (Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, McWay Falls, & more) and S.S. Palo Alto Concrete Ship (in Aptos). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard and take in the history at San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo Mission.

For traveler tips, ratings, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Monterey trip planner.
