Discovering Monterey's historic gardens– our "best kept secret" – will come as a beautiful surprise! Due to Monterey's mild climate, flowers can be found blooming much of the year. Some of the gardens contain fountains you can make a wish in. Others have arbors and quaint walkways bordered by abalone shells or wine bottles. The historic gardens are open to the public at no charge, and do not require reservations.
