Loved the recreational trail in Monterey. We walked/ biked trail by Pacific Grove. Trail has benches that you can sit and watch beautiful sunsets.

This is a great way to walk in Monterey and not have to worry about car traffic. Nice way to get to Old Fisherman's Wharf

Very driveable and very walkable - - MUST DO this if you are in the area - we watched whales from the shore. You will find a public restroom along the way near the local golf course.

I recommend renting from Adventures by the Sea. They have multiple locations including one on Cannery Row near the aquarium. The recreation trail runs right through Cannery Row so you don't need your car. I believe the... More
