On Not Being A Tourist In Monterey
Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey is a touristy hell, where cotton candy grows like kelp and soup only comes in bread bowls. But just beyond the madness is a beautiful little bike path that goes all the way to Cannery Row and the aquarium. There's a spot right next to the wharf where you can sit by the water, poke fingers into tide pools, and bark back at the seals. Great spot for kids.
