After less than a month of exploring and drinking in the sights of Monterey, I have this to report - it is beautiful. Quietly and uniquely beautiful. Monterey is not its flashy cousin to the south. This is no brassy blonde, lipsticked, slow-running silicone pageant queen. Neither is it its sister to the north; no Earth Mother, hemp-skirted, swaying Phish fan. Monterey is the quiet one, unaware of its own beauty, content in its individuality, blissfully removed from the stereotypes of its desperate cousins.

So yes, when asked about Monterey I will answer that it is indeed, quite simply, beautiful.
