Things To Do
Carmel is a wonderful little town with a gorgeous beach, loads of art galleries, wonderful shopping boutiques and numerous indoor and outdoor cafes. Lunch at the Highland Inn overlooking the Pacific is magical. About 20 miles south is Big Sur and the ride along the coast is one you will never forget. Bring your camera. 17 ½ Mile Drive is another driving experience you’ll enjoy. There are good, moderately priced golf courses around, but golf mecca, Pebble Beach, is only minutes away. If you are a golfer, this is an experience you will not want to miss. The Inn can arrange just about anything else you would like to do from kayaking to horseback riding to nature walks.
