I certainly understand that Monterey needed to milk what they have from John Steinbeck's classic novel, but the poor guy must be rolling in his grave to look down on this shameless tourist trap. To be realistic, it is a street of schlock shops and...More

This is a very nice place to gather and enjoy many local attractions. The biggest problem is to find a parking spot.

This is no longer the Cannery of the John Steinbeck novel. in fact is more closely resembles Disneyland then those days. Still it is worth a wander through but more like a 2 hour stop than a full day visit. 2069

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.

Actually not sure as I visited early but it appears to be early as we drove by another evening and it looked to be winding down. About 8ish.
