Although from nearby Salinas, John Steinbeck also spent time in Monterey and the locals take advantage of that fact and celebrate the Nobel Prize winning author.
His book Cannery Row was set in Monterey and the labpratory of the main character, Ed Ricketts, still stands today. Walking through the town is like walking through Steinbeck's book.
And other than this Steinbeck bust, there is also one of Ricketts.
