— A Charming Weekend Getaway
Carmel-by-the-Sea is one of our favorite (and
romantic) Bay Area Getaways. Renowned for its picturesque white-sandy

some of the best golf courses in the world.
The nearby Monterey Peninsula is world-famous
for its stunning coastline and
unparalleled scenic views — it's
no wonder that visitors flock
here from around the world.
