If you are planning a visit to Big Sur, Carmel-by-the-Sea or Monterey, you should consider taking Carmel Valley Road East off of Highway One to find yourself transported into a scenic setting of rolling ranch land, wildflower meadows and meandering streams.
The Carmel River runs from the Santa Lucia mountains to the Pacific Ocean, creating this spectacular, verdant valley. While Carmel Valley was once the home of dairies, ranchers and farms, it now boasts award-winning wineries, one-of-a-kind shopping villages, world-class golf courses, unique resorts, fine-dining and even organic vegetable stands. Visitors can enjoy all of this as well as Carmel Valley’s rolling countryside and abundant sunshine.
