The magnificent Monterey Peninsula has been called the "jewel of the California Central Coast" due to the mild climate and dramatic coastline. Recognized worldwide as an ideal vacation and business destination, Monterey is located 125 miles (201 km) south of San Francisco, 75 miles (121 km) southwest of Silicon Valley and 345 miles (555 km) north of Los Angeles. Settled in 1770, Monterey was the first capital of California under the Spanish, Mexican, and American flags. Monterey, designated as the "Language Capital of the World" by the U.S. Congress, is directly involved with 25 percent of the nation's post-secondary learning in languages other than English. Monterey's language and cultural diversity is reflected in its Native American, Spanish, Mexican, Portuguese, Chinese, Italian and Japanese roots.

This beautiful seaside community combines all the charm of small town America with an endless variety of recreational and cultural activities. Monterey's heritage of scenic beauty and historical interest manifests itself in scenic roadways, historic buildings and the many fine accommodations for tourists. The Del Monte Forest and its Seventeen Mile Drive, the Monterey Path of History, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf, Carmel, and the ocean front drives of the Peninsula communities are world famous. A world-renowned aquarium, 17 world-class golf courses, a unique variety of shops and galleries and a spectacular assortment of parks and natural areas combine to provide a truly unrivaled place for the AIB conference visitor to enjoy.
