Famous Monterey Bay and Carmel-by-the-Sea are two extraordinary stops on the way to Southern California, connected by a picturesque 17-Mile Drive. Monterey hosts the wonderful Monterey Bay Aquarium, home to a mesmerising display of sea life, including sea cucumbers, jellyfish, bat rays and sharks. Carmel is an up-scale artists’ village filled with captivating shops.
Hollywood and Los Angeles
