If you’re a fan of adorably charming and quaint seaside towns with colorful cottages, art galleries, and boutique shops, boy have we the place for you. And if you happened to bring your dog on the trip, they love dogs here. Also, fun facts: Clint Eastwood was once the mayor, and you must have a permit to wear high heels (for safety, people!). You can spend the day hanging on the beach, visit the historic Carmel Mission, grab a bite at La Bicyclette, or stock up on candy at the Cottage of Sweets. You could also take a detour along 17 Mile Dr to soak up views of the rugged coastline, the 250-year-old Lone Cypress tree, sea lions, and the famous Pebble Beach Golf Links. Just know you’ll have to pony up for the toll.
