The city of Monterey, CA, is located in Monterey County on the southern edge of Monterey Bay. Incorporated in 1890, the present-day city covers 8.7 square miles of land with a population approaching 29,000 people.
Nicknamed the Language Capital of the World and California’s “First” City, Monterey and the surrounding area have attracted artists since the late 19th century, many celebrated painters and writers among them. The city was long famous for its fishery up until the 1950s. A few fishermen cabins from the early 20th century have since been preserved in the now-historic district of Cannery Row. Today, Monterey maintains such notable attractions as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Monterey Museum of Art, Fisherman’s Wharf and the annual Monterey Jazz Festival. An abundance of local marine life includes sea lions, sea otters, dolphins and several species of whales.
