Located along California’s Central Coast, Monterey County is found south of San Francisco Bay, approximately
45 miles from San Jose. It is one of the largest agricultural counties in the state, as the rich Salinas Valley extends
through it. Home to nearly half a million residents, this scenic county includes Big Sur, Salinas, and the City of
Monterey. The famous 17 Mile Drive along the Monterey Peninsula is a major draw to the area, as it provides
spectacular ocean views while winding through Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach. If you’re hoping to escape the
heat of Central California, Monterey County is ideal, as the cool winds that move in from the Pacific Ocean helps
to keep temperatures low.
 
Despite its popularity for tourists, Monterey County offers a slower pace of life than San Jose, San Francisco, and
other large cities. From parks to coastal areas, outdoor recreation is plentiful, as there are many national protected and marine protected areas within Monterey County. Each individual community offers specialty
shops, restaurants, and boutiques that allow residents to support local businesses. If you’re interested in visiting
some of the area’s most popular attractions, be sure to visit the Monterey Aquarium, Cannery Row, or the Old
Fisherman’s Wharf. With plenty of amenities all under the California sun, there is so much to love about Monterey
County.
