Austin Healey Drivers, start your engines, fire up the credit card, and start thinking about the Monterey Peninsula.

Monterey Bay Aquarium

One of my favorite spots is the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Cannery Row. See sea otters, sharks, tidal pools and some of the most amazing fish tanks in the country. Click here to go to the home page of the Aquarium.

17-Mile Drive

The 17-Mile Drive is fundamentally a road that passes through an exclusive neighborhood. Normally there is a fee (per car) Click here to get free access!!. Enjoy scenic spots on the coast, the lone cypruss, Pebble Beach (stop for a drink at the bar on the 18 th green), Pacific Grove, Carmel, wow.

Fisherman’s Wharf

Great seafood restaurants, appetizers, views of the harbor, Sea lions, boats tours, need I say more?  Click here  For recommendations of restaurants from a resident of Pacific Grove, click here

Big Sur Coast line

Yes, you could take three days  to visit all the spots but just driving down a ways is a thrill especially with the top down, It only takes a few hours, but be careful, its hard to keep your eyes on the road. Just south a few miles on Highway 1

Cannery Row

In January 1958, the City of Monterey officially re-named Ocean View Avenue “Cannery Row” in honor of John Steinbeck and his novel that described a colorful past set amid the cannery culture of the time.  Now, Cannery Row’s buildings are updated, shinier versions of turn-of-the-century canneries. The main attraction on Cannery Row, and a favorite for visitors to the Central Coast, is the Monterey Bay Aquarium
