The City of Monterey in Monterey County is located on the southern edge of Monterey Bay, on Central California‘s Pacific coast. The Monterey Peninsula offers the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row (the waterfront street in Monterey, the site of a number of now-defunct sardine canning factories; the street name, formerly a nickname for Ocean View Avenue, became official in January 1958 to honor John Steinbeck and his well-known novel Cannery Row), Carmel (Early City Councils were dominated by artists, and the town has had several mayors who were poets or actors, including Herbert Heron, founder of the Forest Theater, bohemian writer and actor Perry Newberry, and actor-director Clint Eastwood, who was mayor for one term, from 1986 to 1988), Pebble Beach (a small coastal resort destination, home to a famous golf course) and much more.
