In 1602 Sebastián Vizcaíno landed in the area of today’s Monterey to name it after the Duke of Monte Rey, a head of the expedition. Later this small settlement by Spanish would serve as the capital of Alta California. The Spanish colonists lost control over the area to the Mexicans in 1821. It soon became a bustling trade spot for exotic goods exchanges. As soon as the American took over the area in 1846 Monterey ceded capital credentials to San Jose and the city of Monterey was then forgotten for more than 30 years till it received the first luxury hotel in 1880s. Since then the city has capitalized on tourism and its gateway location in Monterey Bay. By the 1930s, Monterey put sardine canneries to use and was ranked the ''Sardine Capital of the World''.
Even though history is still alive in Monterey, its present attracts tourists more. In the city you can find six universities, award winning restaurants, and the best shopping in the state of California. You can experience it all in Monterey with Booked.net.
