Walking the streets of Monterey on the Path of History is a journey back through time.
Old adobes have been lovingly restored to recall the days when our city was capital of the Spanish territory of California, as have those historic buildings dating from Monterey’s time as California’s first state capital.
The history of Monterey as a sea town is evident at Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The Maritime Museum houses a complete Visitors Information Center that's open every day. Photos and exhibits depict Monterey's seafaring heritage.

The Monterey Jazz Festival draws accomplished musicians from all over the globe. It's the oldest jazz festival in the world. Veterans and young artists play during the three-day, twelve-concert extravaganza to the delight of patrons, many of whom come year after year.
