A Beautiful City by the Sea: Love it!

During the five years that I lived in Monterey, I have to say it was absolutely amazing. It is a quiet, and peaceful city to live in, and you won't find better weather anywhere than while living in Monterey. The cost of living can be quite high, but in my opinion is worth it if you can afford it! Looking for work? There are plenty of opportunities in Monterey. A quick search in your favorite online job search website will show a huge amount of available jobs in Monterey. Your family will also love come to visit you if you live in Monterey. One of the best areas in Monterey, is the Monterey Bay Aquarium! A must see/visit for anyone who has never been, and you will most likely find yourself going back for a second, or even a third time. So whether you're coming to live in Monterey for work, or just to get away from big city life, one thing is certain, you will love it here!
