Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
Half a century ago it was the “Sardine Capital of the World”. Today, most people know Monterey’s Cannery Row for its most famous inhabitant, Nobel-prize winning novelist John Steinbeck. The ghosts of Steinbeck’s “Cannery Row” still walk the streets: Doc Ricketts, Dora Flood, Lee Chong…but these days, visitors from around the world come more for the great local seafood, the shops and entertainment, and the world-class Monterey Bay Aquarium. Your Dr. Clue hunt on “the Row” explores the fascinating Steinbeck-related historical signage; a precarious telescope along the Boardwalk; a much-obscured plaque dedicated to procrastination; and a shop/museum celebrating the California otter. It’s blue skies, salty sea breezes, and a whiff of literary history on the Bay of Monterey.
