Carmel Valley is a unique area of fancy vineyards next to some pretty run down $500,000 shacks. Probably the best thing to do in the area is visit the large Garland Ranch Regional Park with its 50 miles of hiking trails, plus historic sites, waterfalls, and scenic viewpoints. Many tourists are drawn to this valley because of the numerous vineyards and wine tastings in the area.
