Monterey County is located on the Central Coast of California just south of the San Francisco Bay Area, about 45 miles from San Jose and 106 miles from the City of San Francisco.

The rich Salinas Valley extends through the heart of the County, making Monterey the third largest agricultural county in California.

The County also offers the longest coastline of any California county and attracts more than 3 million visitors annually to destinations such as Fisherman’s Wharf, the Cannery and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
