including 17-Mile Drive and Scenic Pacific Coast Hwy1


Northern California's Monterey Bay area is a spectacular part of the state that offers beautiful scenery and breathtaking beaches.

1) Santa Cruz & Capitola - you will visit attractions including Surf Museum Lighthouse Point, Pleasure Point and Boardwalk. Santa Cruz is also known for companies that manufacture surfboards, skateboards and clothing. Then, you stroll through Capitola's charming and tiny beachside village.

2) Monterey & Carmel - Along Monterey coastline, I will take you to Moss Landing (sea lions) and Cannery Row. You will also enjoy a cruise along the world famous 17-Mile Drive, a scenic road that runs through Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach, following the coastline and passing through several famous golf courses, nearby mansions and past California's famed Lone Cypress Tree. You will take a stroll through downtown Carmel, visiting boutique shops, restaurants and its architecture.

You may customize your itinerary, by replacing the above with Monterey Bay Aquarium or Carmel-Mission basilica.
