The scenic port city of Monterey, which sits on California’s Central Coast, is a favorite tourist destination for both honeymooning couples and vacationing families. While Monterey was officially founded as a U.S. city in 1890, its history as a critical European settlement began as early as the 1600s. The coastal town was once the capital of the region under the governments of Spain and Mexico, and Monterey’s museums, art galleries and boutiques reflect its rich, vibrant past.
Nestled between the shimmering waves of the Monterey Bay and the majestic Santa Cruz Mountains is the city that embodies California coastal living. Downtown Monterey is the focal point of most tourist activities such as shopping at the Cannery Row boutiques, interacting with aquatic life at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and arranging whale-watching excursions on the bay from the Old Fisherman’s Wharf. The city's natural beauty and distinctive character have inspired the works of both painters and literary artists. Famous former residents of Monterey include John Steinbeck, Robert Louis Stevenson, Jack London and Salvador Dali. Monterey is also a favorite destination for SCUBA divers because of the diversity of marine plants and animals that make their home in the Monterey Bay.

The city’s casually elegant ambiance and stunning coastal views have attracted luxury home buyers for years. A tour along the area’s legendary 17-Mile Drive offers visitors a glimpse of the upscale homes that are perched between the dense Del Monte Forest and the rugged Pacific Ocean cliffs. Common architectural styles seen on Monterey homes include Spanish Colonial, French Country, English Tudor and Contemporary Western Regional. These residences are often enhanced by stately wrought iron gates, entry doors and window coverings that lend them the timeless beauty and refinement that many newly built homes lack.
