Seaside has a few Murals worth checking out if you have nothing better to do. One that I like is on Del Monte next to Jim's Chinese. This mural features Monterey's endangered plant and animal species. Another is at the Campo Santo Mausoleum in Mission Memorial park. Seaside also has a few murals by Salinas artist John Cerney located in view of Highway 1 and at an insurance place on Del Monte.
Cerney's latest art works are three Cannery Row-themed murals depicting the characters from Steinbeck's novel as well as dock workers and cannery workers. The first was just placed along the recreation trail next to the new Cannery Row Hotel. This 10x12 foot monsterpiece features "Mack and the boys" six notorious slackers from the 1930s.
