Enjoy Local Flavors

One of the best ways to explore while you travel is to dive into the local food scene, and you won't want to miss out on Monterey's delicious local seafood. With several restaurants getting fresh seafood from the Monterey Bay, this is something you have to put on your itinerary. There are several seafood restaurants on Old Fisherman's Wharf, but you can also get a taste of this local cuisine at one of our two on-site restaurants: Jacks Monterey & Peter B's Brewpub.

Have a Spa Day

There's no better way to unwind than at a day at the spa. Our spa, Spa on the Plaza, has many services and packages for you to relax. Get one of their rejuvenating facials or massages for the perfect way to start or end a solo vacation.
