Twenty minutes from the hotel, near Pebble Beach, the site of a former sardine cannery is now home to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The top-notch facility was the first in the world to grow live California Giant Kelp and housed the first captive Great White.
Saunter through Cannery Row and appreciate its revitalized architecture. Once home to a multitude of sardine canneries, it is now a very popular waterfront recreation destination. This is definitely a must visit for the hotel's guests while in Marina, CA.
Don't Go Home Without
Since the hotel is near Pebble Beach, it makes sense to make the trip to 17-Mile Drive. Tracing the majestic Pacific coastline, travelers will pass famous golf courses, mansions and the "Lone Cypress." There are several turnouts to stop and take photos.
Phil's Fish Market in Moss Landing (15 minutes from the hotel's location in Marina, CA) has "roes" upon "roes" of fresh fish, prawns and mollusks of all varieties. There is even a restaurant on-site.
