cannery row is a nice place to visit once maybe. I was not impressed with it though. they offer many touristy shops (tshirts, art,candy, restruants) but it is ONLY for tourists and it gets jam packed on weekends or nice days on the peninsula.
Parking can be a bear on weekends and their stores are expensive. I used to live in the area and I would recommend going to see it (because it is famous) but not to spend the day on the row. There just isn't that much to do there.
