Have you dined at the Fish Hopper lately? Their restaurant remodel is unbelievable; guests have ocean views from every table for an unforgettable dining experience. The lively color palette was pulled directly from the kelp forests located directly out the windows of the dining rooms and glass tiles offer an iridescent glimmer reminiscent of sunlight through water. The hardwood floors maintain the rustic feel of the wharf. The custom jellyfish light fixtures are an exquisite piece of hand-blown glass which has been tangled and snarled in an iron swirl of kelp.
Not only was their bar transformed, their happy hour menu was as well! Enjoy delicious cocktails and mouthwatering snacks from $5.00-$7.00 – Monday through Friday 3:00pm-6:00pm and 8:30pm to close. Plus $3.00 Draft Beer, $4.00 Well Cocktails and House Wine and 25% off all Exotic Libations!

10th Annual Block Party –Sunday, June 2nd from 11:00am – 5:00pm
Admit it: those 60-hour workweeks have gotten a little overwhelming and now you need a break. Why not get the guys together for a motorcycle trip? It’s a scenic ride into Monterey on Highway 1, and once in town you can park and unpack for a long weekend at InterContinental The Clement Monterey. Set on the water’s edge, this exciting new hotel offers Cannery Row- and Monterey Bay-view rooms plus flat-screen TVs, an on-site fitness center and spa, high-speed wireless internet and 24-hour room service. Sleep in, enjoy lunch overlooking the ocean at The C Restaurant, and then head out toward A Taste of Monterey to sample spicy Syrah blends grown right down the road. But first, stop off at Harley-Davidson for a few new bike accessories and trip t-shirts. Fill the rest of your time with bike rides, mini golf and browsing the local shops, and plan to eat somewhere new each night – authentic Mexican at El Mariachi, steak at the Whaling Station, seafood at The Fish Hopper – before taking in live music at Sly McFly’s.
Spring Break is approaching! If you are looking for a fun getaway for all ages, look no further. With so many unique attractions and iconic spots on Cannery Row, it can be hard to pick just one!

Outdoor recreation abounds on land and in the water. I encourage you to explore the beauty of Monterey Bay’s rocky shores and marine life with kayaking, diving and tide pooling. Rent a bike or surrey and experience the scenic coastal recreation trail that winds through beautiful Cannery Row.
Cannery Row is also an ocean-side playground filled with fun for everyone. The Monterey Mirror Maze invites you into a world of mind-bending fun with the newest entertainment craze. Get lost in this psychedelic setting compete with high tech lighting and pumping music, surrounded by infinite images of yourself. The Lazer Vault will have you jumping, crawling, climbing and slithering your way through an obstacle course of brilliant green lasers.
Stop by the Spirit of Monterey Wax Museum, a favorite of visitors, play a round of black light miniature golf at Ocean’s 18; and release your inner pool shark at Blue Fin Café & Billiards.
With awesome attractions and recreation, also come beautiful ocean front lodging choices. Choose from a lavish resort, a magnificent waterfront hotel or luxury inns and family friendly hotels. Stay at any of Monterey’s best hotels at affordable prices and beautiful views.
