Monterey is an animal-friendly county. The Californian County preserves their fauna and would like to see each hunter in a strapping license for them to know whether they're real or not.

Moreover, the county has four national protected areas, nine marine conservation sites, and five endangered species to protect.

Castroville is the Artichoke Capital of the World. A population of not more than 7,000 takes care of their produce in such a way they even held a pageant for it. In 1947, that first title was given to Norma Jean, whom the world knows as Marilyn Monroe.

Monterey's Custom House is the oldest living building. Built in 1827, the custom's house is a Spanish Colonial style edifice made by the Mexican government.
