What travelers to Downtown Monterey are saying

I love the views of Monterey, the people not so much... yes its touristy but that's not the problem. I was there for new years eve and arrived from san jose a little late (around 9). by the time we got to the downtown area, something was finishing up.. a family event I later read online. when I had asked someone standing by where the street was blocked off (a worker of the city of some sort) what was going on I got the most rudest reply saying new years eve like hello obviously, what is the even going on???? and for that response It completely changed my view on Monterey... ill stick to my secluded beaches thanks.

A beautiful location with a world class aquarium and fabulous waterfront area for walking and viewing the seals, otters and other creatures that populate the bay.
