Historic Monterey -
Cannery Row was made famous by one of the United States greatest writers, John Steinbeck. Steinbeck grew up near Monterey in Salinas, California, and he made the area the backdrop for most of his stories and novels. His book Cannery Row paints a vivid picture of what Monterey was like when it was a center of the canning industry, particularly of sardines caught by local fishermen. Those bygone days are still evident in the architecture of the place as well through neighborhood tours.
