17 Mile Drive
The famous 17 Mile Drive links the towns of Monterey, which was California's first capital back in 1821, to Carmel-by-the-Sea, where Clint Eastwood was once mayor. The latter is a small town full of million dollar villas overlooking beautiful white beaches. After a brief visit to the historic buildings of Monterey, like Colton Hall where the first constitution of California was signed and the Customs House, we strolled through the quaint Fisherman's Wharf full of seafood restaurants and stalls for sampling local cuisine like the famous crab sandwiches. From here, we took the 17 Mile Drive along lush green golf courses and pristine beaches.
