Romance drifts through the fog-shrouded pine trees in this picturesque town reminiscent of a quaint English village. Rich in artistic history, this compact oceanside town, packed into one-square mile, is a magical place. The founding fathers of this small village-by-the-sea created a haven where respect for the serenity and beauty of the area is honored.
A walk through this well-manicured city takes you from a sparkling white sandy beach, under statuesque native Monterey pines and down quiet streets. Artistry is all around. Comstock cottages with their characteristic stone chimneys and pitched gabled roofs are well-preserved reminders of the fun-loving artists who first lived here.
Residents appreciate their heritage and work hard at protecting and preserving it. This year the City marks its centennial with a year-long celebration. Dogs are invited too!
