Monterey Jet Charter Information
Located on the Pacific Coast of western California, on a peninsula at the southern end of Monterey Bay, Monterey was settled by Spain in the 18th century. It became the capital of California after it was claimed by the United States, and was the signing place of the state constitution. Monterey’s economy is primarily supported by tourism and also by the military, being home to the Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center and the Army’s Defense Language Institute, among other installations. One of the most historic cities in the country, Monterey has a rich history and cultural heritage. Many artists and writers have called Monterey home, including John Steinbeck, Robert Louis Stevenson, Salvador Dali, Jimi Hendrix, and Ansel Adams. The city’s historic fish cannery district, immortalized in Steinbeck’s novel Cannery Row, is now laden with shops and seafood restaurants and bars. As one of California’s most vibrant and beautiful cities, Monterey attracts more than 4 million visitors each year.
