What do you need to know? T shirt shops, cinnamon rolls, restaurants and bars all cater to tourists. Step off the beaten track for a more pleasant experience.

This is many blocks full of dining and shopping along the Monterey waterfront. Lots of fun to walk through-could spend hours looking through all the shops.

Pretty nice street if you can accept it Is primary for tourists. Some shops are charming, and others are filled with cheap imports. Frankly, almost all tourist places are like that, anyway. Our suggestion is to avoid the franchise placed and find the local ones.

There is street parking if you're lucky, and there is a parking structure. I don't think the structure would work for an RV though. The whole area is pretty congested, but you should be able to find a place on the street if... More

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.
