Synopsis by Alice Day
The Monterey/Carmel area contains some of the most inviting scenery in California. It may take more than just a few days to do justice to historic Cannery Row, made famous by John Steinbeck, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, with its wall-to-ceiling displays of sea creatures. Its many pleasures appeal to kids and grownups alike. The 17-mile winding Carmel Drive offers crashing surf against a jagged coastline. Video Visits: The Monterey Peninsula and Carmel looks at Pebble Beach and the Carmel Mission, and gives a glimpse of the agricultural Salinas Valley, known as the Salad Bowl of the World.
