Located on Cannery Row, the site of a number of now-defunct sardine canning factories and the setting of two John Steinbeck novels, the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa is part of an area steeped in local history and local activity. It’s located just a few blocks from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, snorkeling, sailing, and whale watching.
Until the 1950s, there was an abundant sardine fishing and canning industry, but overfishing led to the decline of the fishing industry. More than a prime fishing location, Cannery Row was also a haven for artists and authors. The street name, formerly a nickname for Ocean View Avenue, became official in January 1958 to honor John Steinbeck and his well-known novel Cannery Row.
Concentrated efforts in the last 30 years to care for Monterey Bay have helped re-build the fish populations, which has increased populations of other aquatic life—otters, dolphins, sea lions, orcas, and humpback whales. Now, Monterey Bay is one of the best places for observing ocean life in the world. On this week's Travel Today with Peter Greenberg, we head to the Northern California town of Monterey to discover and hear about the rich history of the area first hand from the locals.
This week Peter Greenberg travels to the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa in Monterey, California on Cannery Row. Greenberg chat's with Paul Michel, superintendent of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, who explains why Monterey is one of the greatest wildlife viewing areas in the world, and answers the question: why are wildlife sanctuaries important?

The images of photographer Roberto Rabanne have captured the energy, complexity and beauty in music, fashion and art for more than four decades. I have a simple philosophy about photography, it’s that the image has to be powerful” explains Rabanne. “And I find this happens when you capture the subject engaging in the non-defensive, unguarded essence that is truly ‘them. One day at a sound check he decided he had nothing to lose and asked Jimi Hendrix if he could take his picture with his Yashica twin lens reflex. “Sure, man,” the flamboyant guitarist said, and Rabanne began snapping away. “I shot half a roll of film, rushed back to my little darkroom and processed it, and ran back to the Fillmore with the proof sheets,” explains Rabanne. “Hendrix said, ‘Wow, man, I like these,’ and stuck a $100 bill in my hand. He was my first ‘client’ and that was the beginning of my career as a professional photographer.Rabanne’s photos were first published in magazines like Rolling Stone, Crawdaddy, Cream and the East Village Other. They ran the gamut of the great bands – from the Grateful Dead and Quicksilver to Big Brother and the Holding Company, Cream, Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and more. Early on, Rabanne befriended Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. The legendary musician gave him priority access and allowed the photographer to do several studies of him and the band.Later, Rabanne’s interests expanded to include jazz and reggae. Shooting for Down Beat, Jazz Express, Goldmine, NME and numerous recording companies, his work now included the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Carmen McRae, Betty Carter, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Bob Marley and scores of others as he became the official photographer of the Monterey Jazz Festival.
