As Monterey one of the coolest cities on the Californian coast, it's no surprise that Fisherman's Wharf is a great spot to go for walk in the sun. The site has its own parking, part paid and part free. There are several shops and plenty of restaurants, although you'll find some better closer to the aquarium. And here you can catch a whale-watching boat trip. And you can see Georges Birds, a man with many tropical birds for you to take a picture with (I'm not sure if this is legal or not...).
