Many historic structures and interpretive facilities fan out from the Fisherman’s Wharf area along Monterey’s Path of History. Guided and self-guided tours are available. Alternate format materials are available at the Pacific House and the Cooper Molera store. A number of park structures have been modified for accessibility, but the sites are spread out and the terrain of Monterey is hilly in some areas, so assistance- or an electric wheelchair- may be needed to get to some of them.
In the Central Plaza area, the Pacific House and Custom House are generally accessible and make good starting points for a visit. At the other end of downtown, much of the Cooper-Molera complex is generally accessible. A number of structures that may be usable, including the Stevenson, Larkin, Cooper, and Diaz Houses, are only open by guided tours at specific times. Call for more information, or follow the link below to the park website.
Restrooms: Accessible comfort stations are off the Central Plaza in the Casa del Oro Garden. Restrooms in the Cooper Molera courtyard are generally accessible.
Parking: No visitor parking is available for these sites. Various city or private lots are available and include accessible parking.
