Cannery Row is a pleasant place to stroll, mostly for tourists and along the great Monterey Bay Aquarium, where we walked along the bay, checked out shops and restaurants, stopped into the Aquarium's little education center, and enjoyed ourselves.

Lovely walk from the Wharf to Cannery Row. CR itself Is a concrete carbuncle trying desperately to cling to the heyday of Steinbeck. Hotels, shops, bars and restaurants now line the sanitized streets than once ran with brine and fish guts. Tourist trap but a...More

Cheesy, dirty area. Not sure why this is an attraction. We walked it but could have done without it. I guess you have to do it once.

Generally I like the touristy parts of tourist towns, because they are usually quite particular to their homes. Cannery Row exists because John Steinbeck made it legendary, yet, now all it is is a straight street with a lot of little expensive shops that have...More

Set your expectations right and this will be an enjoyable morning or afternoon. The shops are interesting and diverse, not your typical tourist places. Yes, you can find the souvenir shops, but more you'll find an eclectic bunch of clothing, jewelry and food that you...More

A good place to visit with plenty of restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Views over the bay and some interesting information boards about the history of the area.

We spent one night in monetary, we did cannary row, whale watching, 17 mile drive, bixby bridge and the aquarium and that was long enough. It’s pretty but not enough to do, we would only suggest one night to be honest.

There is street parking if you're lucky, and there is a parking structure. I don't think the structure would work for an RV though. The whole area is pretty congested, but you should be able to find a place on the street if... More

No where near the same amount. Fishermans wharf is full of outside restaurants attracting the birds. No where near the same problem you should be fine.
