Monterey is located on California's central coast on the southern edge of Monterey Bay. The city is home to 27,000 residents and is conveniently located 115 miles south of San Francisco and 350 miles north of Los Angeles. Monterey is just minutes from Pebble Beach and Carmel-by-the-Sea.
In the 1930s and 1940s, Monterey was the sardine capital of the world with a thriving fishing industry. Today, the city is home to a smaller commercial fishing fleet, with the local economy powered by healthcare, private sector businesses, education and government.
Once a key military outpost, Monterey maintains its military tradition with the Defense Language Institute, the Naval Postgraduate School and Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center.
Monterey residents enjoy a mild year-round climate with cool summer months (the average temperature is 59.5 degrees) and a warm "Indian Summer" autumn.
