Take a tour of Northern California's Pacific Peninsula, a breathtakingly gorgeous coastline. Watch the local surfers from a close vantage point at Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz, tour the beautiful golf courses and houses at 17 mile drive, and visit the quaint and charming town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, which has fabulous art galleries and restaurants featuring local cuisine and ingredients.

Itinerary

Drive south of San Francisco until we reach the scenic Pacific Coast Highway 1. As we make our way down the coastline, our first stop is in Santa Cruz where you can watch the local surfers at Steamer Lane from an unbelievable cliff view, only feet away from the surfers.

Then we will head down to Monterey where we will tour 17-mile drive, a private road that takes you through Pebble Beach golf course and the beautiful Monterey peninsula. Then, we will finish for lunch at Carmel-by-the-Sea, and marvel at the unique and charming town that features some of the most stunning houses designs and art galleries around.
