Monterey – Cannery Row

A fun place to hold a team building activity in Monterey

Dr. Clue Monterey treasure hunt and scavenger hunt for team building

Event Description
: A flat, safe and diverse teambuilding venue, Cannery Row is a place visitors from around the world flock to…for the great local seafood, the shops and entertainment, and the world-class Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Location History: 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.

During your teambuilding treasure hunt… expect to explore the fascinating Steinbeck-related historical signage; discover 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.


Dr. Clue Gives You Three Ways to Customize Your Hunt Program

Not every corporate team building program is the same.  Depending on your group, your focus may be integrating new people into the team and breaking down personal boundaries and divisions.    Or you may have an existing department where teams could, with a little practice, cooperate and communicate more smoothly across teams and divisions.  Or you might simply have a group that thrives on the use of technology.    Let Dr. Clue customize your hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.   Read more about our 3 ways to customize your teambuilding exercise.
