    Get the clam chowder from Old Fisherman's Grotto and coffee from Water+Leaves (They have a small outdoor patio where you can sit and look at this view)!

    Free clam chowder samples all the way down the wharf! It also has quite a few tourist shops, whale watching, seafood restaurants, and a man with parrots near the end of the wharf.

    Touristy but fun to walk around. Don't bother eating or shopping there though. Overpriced and much better places nearby.

    Clam chowder best on the wharf, possibly in Monterey all together! Bread pudding desert also an absolute MUST TRY. Great service, staff, and decor/Sanatra music!

    Fun for a walk, and to see the sea lions. Sometimes you will get lucky and they will be VERY close, sunning themselves on the lower docks.
