My family had a wonderful time exploring the coastline. We rented a 4-seater surrey at Adventures by the Sea and rolled up and down the bike path that extends from Pacific Grove to Fisherman’s Wharf.

Quint seaside town, a fairy tale place. Sophisticated boutique shops, coffee houses and breeze from ocean, makes a stroll there a real treat

For the sheer beauty of the California coastline you should spend time in Carmel. Take the scenic walk along the ocean, especially in the morning when you greet the locals, see the dolphins playing, and be charmed by the architectural styles of the lucky ones who live there. So much to do, eat, drink, shop, golf, and hike. Put it on your list!
