"Beautiful Highway nr 1 and the Carmel mission" Combined Suggestions Tip by sim1
Combined Suggestions, California: 13 reviews and 6 photos
After taking the 17-mile-road it's only a short drive to Carmel. In Carmel you can visit the beautiful Carmel Mission. Carmel is along the coast on highway 1. It is about 200 km (124 miles) south from San Francisco. Our trip went further along the coast to San Simeon. From Carmel to San Simeon is another 160 km (100 miles).
It's a long drive, but oh, such a beautiful one! The highway nr.1 is a magnificent road along the spectacular coastline of California.
Looking back on this day, I should have planned it differently. From San Francisco to San Simeon is a long drive and there is far too much to see along the way. Monterey, Carmel and the spectacular views from highway 1 deserved some more time.
Take a look at my Carmel page for more photos and info.
