About these ratings

Anchored by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row is the epicenter of Monterey's tourism industry. Boutique hotels, shops and restaurants line this seaside avenue and attract thousands of travelers each year. But many recent visitors find the area overpriced and too touristy, noting that you can no longer detect the charms that John Steinbeck details in his 1945 novel Cannery Row.

The best way to get back to Cannery Row's roots is to take a trip to the Cannery Row Antique Mall. Housed in an old canning company building, the mall is filled to the brim with Steinbeck-era trinkets. There is also the small McAbee beach, which affords panoramic views of Monterey Bay. 

For more information about the shops, eateries and hotels, check out Cannery Row's website.
