Like writer Robert Luis Stevenson, who lived in Monterey, real estate owners can also sense a "haunting presence of the oceans" with the cry of gulls or the tang of salt in the air. Monterey home owners can take a morning stroll along the beautiful beach, or along the Monterey Peninsula Recreation Trail. One of the prettiest stretches runs from the justifiably famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, about a mile out to Lovers Point, which is a small grassy peninsula. Listen to the water crash on the rocky coast as the sun sets.
In Monterey, it is easy to sail or kayak among the sea lions. A temperate climate means that if you buy a Monterey home you will be able to pursue outdoor activities year round. If you are looking for Monterey real estate, you can find everything from spectacular ocean view villas to smart condominiums.

Every fourth grader in Monterey's quality school system knows that Monterey was once the capital of California. It is jam-packed with history, much of it on view in the city's old adobe buildings.

The fish canneries that inspired John Steinbeck's Cannery Row have evolved into gift shops and restaurants, but you can still watch each morning as the fishermen unload their catches at Fisherman's Wharf. "Life on Cannery Row was curious and dear and outrageous," Steinbeck wrote.
Monterey also has a rich cultural life. The most important event takes place each September, when the city plays host to a jubilant jazz festival that features many big-name performers. If you don't already own a Monterey home, make sure to book a room in one of the beautiful Monterey inns or hotels.
