Be prepared to never want to go back home after Day 2! Start the day with a cup of coffee and a pastry in one of the many mom-and-pop cafes along Ocean Avenue in Carmel-by-the Sea. If your heart desires, check out the chic boutiques all over town. Once you're ready, jump in the car and enjoy one of the most beautiful drives in the world: the 17-Mile Drive.
Allow yourself plenty of time to cover the entire drive and be prepared to stop and admire the many beautiful vistas along the way. It's well worth the fee ($11.25 per vehicle) and you'll bring home memories that will last a lifetime. Enjoy lunch at one of the world famous golf courses along the drive, including Pebble Beach Golf Links and the Inn at Spanish Bay.
Once you've had some time to rest back at your hotel, treat yourself to a pre-dinner drink followed by a leisurely meal at any of the restaurants throughout town. If you're craving Italian, be sure to check out Il Tegamino or Portabella.
