Affordable Family Accommodation

by aussiedoug

G'Day Monterey people,

My almost 9 year old twin girls, my wife and I, will be staying in Monterey Nov 23, checking out morning of Nov 25 and would really appreciate any advice on affordable family accommodation that is within reasonable walking distance of Cannery Row and the Aquarium.

Also if you have any advice on interesting family things to do that would be helpful too e.g. will it be too cold to go kayaking and what are the best options for that?

For me personally, it's winetasting and history that interests me most, of course good coffee where ever I can find it! lol! However we have to balance out everything for all of us to be happy, not to mention not blowing the budget.

Regards from downunder,
Doug

Watch for the sea otters - we watched one for about an hour from an oceanside restaurant near the aquarium in Monterey. (We were headed to Carmel and stayed there in the Best Western near Junipero St.)

Hotels on Cannery Row are pretty expensive, running at least $200 per room per night. A few cheaper places near Cannery Row include the Otter Inn & Cannery Row Inn, which begin at $125 or $150 a night.

Downtown Monterey is just one mile from Cannery Row along a beautiful walking trail, and it has a few more options such as the old Monterey Hotel with small rooms starting around $100, and the Hotel Pacific with bigger suites often available around $150. This area also has more to offer in terms of restaurants and history in my opinion.

Though all are relatively expensive, they are in the middle of the action in Monterey. If these are still out of the price range, Munras Ave has some slighter cheaper hotels and North Fremont has lodging as low as $50 a night such as the Econolodge, which really isn't terrible...

The aquarium will be great for the kids, and it seems like it's never too cold to go kayaking if you get a wetsuit (or drysuit?)--you can rent kayaks at Adventures By the Sea at Del Monte Beach near downtown or at Cannery Row. Downtown Monterey has lots of little museums such as the Custom House, the Maritime Museum, and the Presidio Museum. This area also boasts a dozen or so historic adobe homes dating from the 1800s, along with Monterey's first capitol building. The Carmel Mission (late 1700s) is certainly worth visiting, as is the town of Carmel itself if only to see the beach and beautiful homes. Point Lobos State Park is full of wildlife and easy hiking, and Jack's Peak offers great views over downtown Monterey. Point Pinos Lighthouse is also a favorite historic landmark. Another idea for the kids is the monarch butterfly wintering area in Pacific Grove where tens of thousands of the insects converge each winter. There are at least four wine tasting rooms along Cannery Row, but there are also numerous vineyards in nearby Carmel Valley. Oh, and my favorite coffee is at Santa Lucia, a German/Italian place in downtown with a wonderful German breakfast plate and the strongest coffee in town.

Let me know if you have any other questions or want more info about the suggestions I mentioned. Enjoy your visit!

Travel Tips for Monterey

US Navy Post Graduate School

by grandmaR

We moved to Norfolk VA in 1961, and Bob flew anti-submarine planes off of carriers at various location in the Atlantic. By the end of 1963 we had two young daughters.

Then he was sent to California. We were in the Monterey area for the only time Bob had a duty station on the west coast becaise he got an appointment to the U.S. Navy Post Graduate School. Admissions is very selective and is restricted to military officers and civilians that work for the Department of Defense.

The school is still active and 176 students graduated in March 2006. Although it is not a tourist attraction, it was one of the main facts of life for us between 1964 and 1966. The building pictured is the old Del Monte hotel

http://www.nps.navy.mil/nps/admin.htm We had a wonderful time visiting local attractions, and traveling throughout nearby California.

Unfortunately the Vietnam war was heating up around this time, and the powers that be decided to take most of the pilots (of which Bob was one), pull them from their studies and send them back to the fleet.

Bob was flying anti-submarine planes, and there wasn't much call for that in Vietnam, but that didn't make any difference.

So our next stop was Key West.

Famous Names in Monterey

by Ewingjr98

As I drive & walk around Monterey I often see street names that make me wonder who these people were...important enough to get a street named after them, they must be important enough for me to learn about, right?

Fremont Blvd in Monterey and Seaside. Named for John C. Fremont who first arrived in Monterey in 1846, was named the first military governor of California, was one of California's first senators, and failed in a bid for President of the United States.

Sloat Ave near NPS in Monterey. US Navy Commodore John D. Sloat arrived in Monterey in 1846 and claimed California for the United States.

Alvarado St is Monterey's Main St. It is named after Juan Bautista Alvarado who was born in Monterey and served as a controversial governor of Mexican California.

Don Dahvee Lane & Don Dahvee Park are located near the Del Monte Shopping Center between Highway 1 and Munras Ave. I was surprised to find these areas are named for local land baron and businessman David Jacks...the local Mexicans used this name for him. David St, Jack's Peak, & Jack's Park are also named after Jacks.

Ord St & Fort Ord. General Edward Otho Cresap Ord was a lieutenant in 1847 when he arrived in Monterey (with William Tecumseh Sherman & Henry Halleck) and built the fort that became the Presidio of Monterey.

Major Sherman Lane...I think is named after General William Tecumseh Sherman who spent a few years in Monterey as an army Lt and Captain. As far as I can tell, he was never a major while here!

Larkin St. Thomas O. Larkin was the US consulate to Mexican California before California became part of the US.

Abrego St. Don Jose Abrego, a Mexican merchant who came to Monterey in 1834.

Cannery Row. Though the general area was always known as Cannery Row, the street name was changed from Ocean View Blvd to Cannery Row due to the fame of John Steinbeck's novel. I think Pearl St was also named after a novel Steinbeck wrote while living in Monterey.

Victorian Homes along the Rocky Coast

by zrim

As they say in the real estate game: Location, Location, Location. Hard to top the Monterey Coast for location. The coastline in this part of town is parklike with generous sidewalks along the coastline and easy access to the rocky outcroppings to get closer to the comorants and other wildlife.

Monterey Peninsula Artists

by Ewingjr98

Ever heard of Monterey Peninsula Artists? Probably not, but your favorite singer certainly has. They are an agency for a bunch of singers of all genres, headquartered on 509 Hartnell Street in Monterey, next to the post office. They represent Toby Keith, Black Eyed Peas, Aerosmith, KD Lang, Lyle Lovett, The Black Crowes and about 100 other singers and bands. Kind of cool.

Though they were recently purchased by Paradigm, they continue to have a headquarters in Monterey, along with locations in Nashville, Las Angeles, and New York. Paradigm is a little more diverse than Monterey Peninsula Artists, covering television, literature, and other arts, most famous for representing the TV shows 24, Desperate Housewives, and Rescue Me.

Check out their website... http://www.montereypeninsulaartists.com/ or call them at (831)375-4889 if you want to book the Doobie Brothers for your barmitzvah.

Monterey Peninsula Artists is located in the old Gabriel de la Torre adobe. Built around 1832 by Don Jose de la Torre, the Mexican government's chief administrator of Monterey. One of the oldest buildings in town, it was used as a Federal Court under Mexican rule and continued as a court after American possession in 1846.

Osio Theater

by Ewingjr98

The Osio Cinemas is one of those small, local theaters that every town should have, but most just can't stay in business. The Osio creates its niche by showing a variety of independent films, foreign films, and a few Hollywood blockbusters. They are also the friendliest theater around, giving numerous student, military, and senior citizen discounts, and they have no ticket sellers behind bulletproof glass with a funny speaker. With their discounts, most tickets are about $6.50 some two or three dollars cheaper than the big Wal-Mart movie complexes. The Osio has just six screens, but all are modern with comfy seats and good sound and lighting.

We saw "Mongol," the Russian-made epic about Ghengis Khan at this theater in July 2008. This is a great movie entirely in Mongolian with English subtitles that is not showing anywhere else around Monterey.

The theater is named after the nearby Osio-Rodriguez Adobe, and it was completed in 1999. It was part of the Custom House Urban Renewal Project that started in 1994.
