Peppers is our personal favorite Mexican restaurant in the Monterey Peninsula. Peppers is located in the quaint village of Pacific Grove at 170 Forest Avenue. We sat at the bar and had lunch on a Saturday afternoon and were personally served by the owner, Chewy. He made our dining experience very personable and pleasurable leaving our taste buds completely fulfilled.
We were served his special Margaritas and they were just fantastic. They have a variety of Margaritas to pleasure your drinking experience. For the kids, they serve juices and soda fountain drinks. For adults, Peppers has some of the best selection of Mexican beers on the Monterey Peninsula. To boot, they provided their homemade chips with their special salsas to set off our dining experience.
We all agree that we would recommend this restaurant to our friends and tourists and we are even willing to give up the identity and locale of our favorite Mexican restaurant here in lovely Pacific Grove.
Monterey, California. Although we are involved with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and Internet marketing consulting here on the Monterey Peninsula, we do have other interests.
Surfing is one of those interests. Now, I know some people knock surfing, but if you haven’t tried it you ought to give it a try. The water here in California it can be on the cold side but you can almost always get a wetsuit one way or another.
There is a surfing contest here annually in the Monterey Bay area. Last year the waves were large and they appeared to be well formed. Perhaps we will attend the Monterey surfing contest next year and offer content marketing services or Internet marketing services to the surfing community. We shall see.
One thing that is good to know when you are planning your vacation to Monterey California is how to get here.
I oftentimes, and probably incorrectly, assume that people will be driving to Monterey, California.
As one of the best Internet marketing consultants in California, we are interested in ensuring that people can visit Monterey California and Carmel California without a lot of anxiety.
Now I realize that some tourists arrive in Monterey, California by airplane. Perhaps they, or you, are visiting from Japan. In this case, I would hope that they arrived by airplane, probably to San Francisco California.
Once you are in San Francisco, head south on Highway 101. I believe it is about 120 miles and it could take you about 2 hours on average. That is a fairly short time to come down from San Francisco to Monterey for a weekend or for a three-day weekend.
See you soon. We will not be expecting you to use our website design services in Monterey while you’re on vacation. We do make the services and products available to those who are not vacationing.
There are many beach activities one can participate in here at the Monterey Peninsula. Some of these would include walking on the beach collecting shells skim boarding wading in the water surfing but he boarding and the best actor in a save for the last and that it last activity is throwing a Frisbee.
Actually, if you stay at some of the hotels in Carmella California or in the north part of Monterey and Seaside California you can stay very close to the beach.
In this way when the sun rises in the morning, you can see if the surf’s up. If you have time you can think of for a few minutes about using your computer or about Internet marketing, but you really need to stay focused on enjoying your vacation not on work.
Trying a Frisbee is a good activity because it is easy to involve others. It is also really easy to get a lot of exercise throwing a Frisbee because most people can’t throw out correctly and I will go and great distance by itself. At this point it might be good to have a dog to chase a Frisbee that way you will get more throws in.
So again, there are many activities here in moderate California at the beach. Some people even fish at the beach and I don’t have the patience for that so I’m not recommending that you. There are Monterey California fishing charters however and we may provide reviews on those soon.
This post is about the Fisherman’s Wharf in the Monterey Bay area. I want you to be sure that you understand this is not Cannery Row.
Cannery Row is farther to the south on a rocky area.
The core of our business here in Monterey, California is search engine optimization for small businesses. Therefore I feel it is my duty to be aware of the stores that are operating and serving customers in the area.
I believe many customers to fisherman’s wharf come from San Francisco area and they may be involved with the Internet as well. I see many people carrying mobile phones on the wharf.
The advantage of the technology these days is that we can find what we are looking for faster if the merchants have optimized their websites to be found in mobile search.
You can find great buys on fresh fish here.
You can find great seafood restaurants on fisherman’s wharf and on municipal wharf number 2.
And I don’t know if you can fish off the pier. It is not something I would really want to do.
I was there one day with my friend and I seem to recall that people were fishing off the pier, but it was pretty cold so we stayed a few minutes to look at the sea lions and then we returned back to the fisherman’s wharf area. There is a market that sells fresh fish and fresh fruits.
If you buy your food here you can take it home and make a fantastic fresh meal. I don’t know of a place that sells fresher fruit for you to prepare while you’re visiting here in the Monterey area.
When I visited Tap Room, I immediately felt more relaxed and comfortable.
The drive approaching the restaurant was absolutely amazing. And the restaurant is located on a 17 mile drive so you will need to pay the fee to get onto 17 mile drive and then drive to the Tap Room for lunch or for dinner. The restaurant is located in Pebble Beach which is an unincorporated area and is considered a public area, so anyone can visit.
They serve a multitude of beers for any beer drinker’s taste. And some may find that the beer is perfect after playing a long 18 holes of golf on the famous Pebble Beach golf course.
Further, for beverages they have many fine California wines. When I conduct WordPress maintenance for my WordPress sites, here in Monterey, California the topic of wine occasionally comes up.
You must come for yourself to experience the wonderful California wines if you are a wine aficionado.
They serve good cocktails and Mimosas too. So if you go there on a Sunday, you can still enjoy the beverages that the Tap Room offers.
Thank you for your time. Next time we go to the Tap Room, we will provide you further information on this beautiful restaurant in Pebble Beach, California.

As I am writing this article, I currently work maintaining WordPress websites after I developed amazing e-commerce WordPress websites here in Monterey California. I also served the San Jose California area with my website design and Internet marketing services just so you know.
So, what is so great about Monterey houses?
I discussed this with an architect friend of mine one day walking down the street in Pacific Grove, California.
It was a Sunday morning and we were enjoying looking at many of the beautiful houses up and down the street.
I guess that many of the houses were over 100 years old. Almost all of the houses were in super great shape; they have been maintained well over the decades.
Some houses really stood out, like this picture of a Victorian era house. The workmen had just developed tools that were able to cut wood in intricate patterns and so they took advantage of that when building many of the houses here in Carmel and Pebble Beach and Monterey, California.
The thing is, all of the houses are unique. No house like this will ever be built again especially in this location so the houses are in any way, priceless.
If you like to have fun, Cannery Row at night is the place to be.
Just look at the picture above and you can see the beautiful blue colors you may counter soon after sunset on the beach at Cannery Row.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is located on Cannery Row. Although I don’t recall the price, I believe that it was reasonable. I remember seeing many kinds of fish that I had not seen before. They have a fantastic “water tube,” for lack of a better description that allows you to be underwater and since you are in the tunnel, filled with air, it’s just like walking down the sidewalk underwater.
It would take you two or more nights to explore Cannery Row. So be prepared to return to Cannery Row for another visit if this is your first visit.
My visit to Cannery Row was a while ago, and I remember only a couple of things. I saw a shop that sold olive oil. There was a shop that sold Indian lanterns. There was a candy shop.
And there were restaurant after restaurant that looked so delicious I had to force myself to keep walking so I could get home and write this post for you.
So I will reiterate, come down to Monterey (and you may also have heard of Carmel) and come to Cannery Row at night and get more out of your vacation.
